  • Grains: Pilsner, Rye, Wheat

HILL 88 DOUBLE IPA

Named after the lighthouse northwest of the famed Golden Gate Bridge, this beer will shine a light on the modern pilsner.

LIFTIE WEST COAST IPA

We might be projecting a bit, but the first whiff of this beer takes us right to the mountains. A beer that we’d happily pair with our lift ride to the top, this beer has a crisp spruce forward aroma and notes of pine. Some subtle fruit comes through as the beer warms with continued piney notes, but remember to finish it before you offload! A solid final beer to close out your day, this is our “liftie” of the day.

SOLSTICE BROWN ALE

While it might be difficult to travel right now, this beer will transport you to Northern England. In the spirit of a Northern English Brown ale; this beer utilizes over 90% Admiral malt which is barley grown in California and crafted on Alameda Island. Pouring a deep brown with mahogany highlights, flavors and aromas of toasted malt, dark chocolate, and subtle roast notes will open up as the beer warms in your glass, balanced subtly with traditional floral and early notes from the english hops and yeast . While flavorful, this beer is dry and endlessly drinkable at 4.5%. Our brewer crafted this on the winter Solstice, so Solstice Brown is here for your next proper session as our winter wraps up. Cheers!

  • Hops: East Kent Golding
  • 4.5% ABV

TRAILBLAZER IPA LATEST RELEASES

FROZEN WOLF HAZY IPA

Frozen Wolf is our first hazy brewed with 100% Cryo hops. The Cryo technology freezes fresh hops and genty extracts lupulin (that’s the good stuff). Look for huge hop aromas and flavors of citrus and tropical fruits layered on a light malt backbone.

KA PAI HAZY IPA

In New Zealand’s native language (Maori) “Ka Pai” = “everything is fine”. An apt descriptor for brewing and tasting this beer loaded with NZ’s Moutere and Waimea hops.

NoBo HAZY IPA

The northbound route on the John Muir Trail is equally incredible but slightly less travelled. We mixed things up with our NoBo hazy – hops from Alsace (Barbe Rouge), Washington (Simcoe) and Idaho (Idaho Gem) combine in a multicultural sensation that just might broaden your mind a little.

SoBO HAZY IPA

Start in Yosemite; hike the 200+ mile John Muir Trail southbound, finish with Mt Whitney. Legendary. Life-changing. Our SoBo hazy IPA won’t change your life, but it’s a pretty good way to celebrate whatever adventure you just conquered.
