Pixie Mix Cherry Crusher

Bride of Dankenstein IPA 
You know what they say, the best things come in pairs. This Classic west coast single IPA is the significant other, or bride so to speak, to our Danknestein’s monster. We sewed together a bouquet of Citra, Idaho 7, Cascade, Cashmere, Strata, and Amarillo to create a beer that is lighter and more fruit forward than her more monstrous other half, although sure to still ELECTRIFY

Dankenstein’s Monster DIPA
IT’S ALIVE!!! IT’S ALIIIIIIIIIIVEEEEEEEE!!!
Just in time for the spooky season, this monstrous unfiltered double IPA packed is packed to the brim with classic and dank hops. We pieced together this monster with Cascade, CTZ, Chinook, Centennial, and Simcoe giving you big citrus. big pine, and all the dankness you could ask for. 

Brothers of the Freemason IPA
The only password you need to get into this masonic lodge is the word “Citra”. Created in collaboration with our Bros (Pun definitely intended) at Booze Brother’s Brewing out of Vista CA, this beer contains nothing but Citra. But don’t take that as it being boring by any means. We tracked down every different variation of the Citra hop we could find to create this citrus bomb. Containing Cryo Citra, Incognito Citra, and regular T90 Citra hop pellets, this beer is much more complex than your standard single hop beer.
All you need to do is know the password and the handshake

Eastern Seaboard DDH DIPA
A double dry hopped New England style IPA brewed with American barley, Canadian oats, Germany spelt malt, and a dash of lactose sugar. Hopped in the whirlpool and hop back before being dry hopped twice with 5 lbs per gallon of Lupulin saturated Mosaic, Citra & Galaxy.

New Territories IPA
Abundantly tropical, saturated, and easy to drink… this high-tech IPA collab with Mikkeller Brewing San Diego uses a genetically modified yeast that directly produces massive tropical fruit aromas, active fermentation dry hopping with a fancy new blend of cryo hops that emphasizes mango aromatics, and Talus, everyone’s favorite new hop.

Union Lager 
Inspired by the Dortmunder Union brewery and their crispy golden lagers, Union Lager is somewhere between a Pilsner and a Helles in terms of hop expression and malt heft.
Union Lager is our take on a Westphalian pale lager. It’s crisp, moderately malty, easy to drink but
with a pronounced hop profile, and best of all, this beer is a celebration of our newfound status as a Union-operated brewery.

Hop Coastal DIPA 
Hop Coastal is your sea voyage from northern pine banks to southern tropical beaches. Bursting with a boatload of Simcoe and Citra hops, you’ll encounter the full depths of juniper, grapefruit, peach and melon. This double IPA, at 7.5% ABV, has enough umph to get you there and back again.

Orange Ripple Sorbet IPA
Here is your favorite creamsicle NEIPA but without the lactose. The sweet creaminess comes from puréed oranges and vanilla which are both added after fermentation. 

Batisserie S’mores Stout
This S’mores beer is full-bodied, with a silky mouthfeel and layered with notes of milk chocolate, graham cracker and roasted marshmallow. Contains milk sugar. 10% ABV.

Bistro Spiced Apple Donut
If you haven’t been able to visit the apple orchard this year, just reach for a can of Bistro Spiced Apple Donuts. It’s the fall experience in a can! Breathe in the bready donut aroma, watch the spice flecks descend like falling leaves and feel the thick body of apple pulp wash over your taste buds. Just like the classic fall donut, this heavily fruited Berliner Weisse delivers on not being too sweet while offering a comforting yet sophisticated flavor experience. 6.5% ABV

Dormitory Daze Hazy IPA
Citra, Mosaic, El Dorado blend together for an overripe tropical juicy hop bomb. This hazie is a collab with our friends from Freehand Goods in Orlando. Pineapple, fresh orange peel, and dank mango fill out the nose and palate and finish out to a smooth mouthfeel.

Lemon Cheesecake Shakeeee
Sharp, bright lemon and sweet lactose meet beautiful cheesecake flavors in this Berliner. Light and rich flavors from a favorite dessert all rolled into a fun and unique beer.

Cosmic Fudge Imperial Stout
Imperial Milk Stout with Walnuts, Marshmallow, and Cocoa Nibs
Rich chocolate brownies, deep fudge, whipped marshmallow, and roasted walnuts meld into this dessert stout. Sweet and flavorful!

Are You There God? It’s me Strawberry
We’ve got some more goop for you. Our Mixed-Culture Foeder-Fermented Berliner-Base conditioned on unconscionable quantities of juicy Strawberries & Tahitian Vanilla Bean Caviar with a dash of Milk Sugar for good measure.

Raspberry Double Marbles Milkshake IPA – 8% ABV
Raspberry Marbles is making it’s way back into orbit…and this time it totally doubled! This tubular Milkshake-Style DIPA contains a cosmic amount of fresh Raspberries, Mosaic hops, sweet Vanilla, and creamy Milk Sugar for the ultimate raspberry milkshake profile. A hefty payload of straight raspberry juice orbits around a subtle acidic piquancy thats all contained within a nebulously plump body of haze. Cut the hyperspeed engines and shower your tastebuds in this intergalactic storm of flavor

DDH 755 Nelson – 6.8% ABV
Our favorite fog dog gets some flashy new threads in the form of a third dry hop full up with a deliciously fruity lot of New Zealand Nelson Sauvin after the first two of our hand selected Azacca, Amarillo & Citra. Saturated salutations from our house to yours. 

Non-Fungible TIPA – 10.1% ABV
Just like those nifty tokens everyone’s been so stoked about that certify a digital asset to be unique and therefore not interchangeable. For fear of sounding, well, sentimental, we can’t ever get this exact bushel of hops in again. This grain was grown in a specific region that experienced unique weather during the growing season. You get the idea. It may be next to imperceptible on a shorter timeline, but this beer will never be the same as it is at this very moment. This is a fleeting expression of impermanent joy in the form of beer in a can. F*ck%*# science, amirite? 

Local 755 – 6.8% ABV
Our Foggy Favorite. Azacca, Amarillo & a Gwop of Citra. Soft, Juicy & Hazy like 70’s Home Movies.

If you ask us it’s perfect for pairing with food, sitting around a fire, or accidentally setting food on fire. 8% ABV (Inside Pub)
