CORE YEAR-ROUND BEERS
HAWK HILL HEFEWEIZEN
Hawk Hill follows a traditional German Hefeweizen grain bill (50% wheat) with a bit of rye tossed in to draw out the pepper and spice notes from the light hopping schedule. Light, crisp and refreshing, Hawk Hill will bring out the sun, no matter the weather.

HILL 88 DOUBLE IPA
Our Hill 88 Double IPA employs a simple but sturdy malt backbone to balance and assertive hop aroma and flavor. It is named after one of the highest spots in the Marin Headlands and in the early days we might have sought inspiration there over a beer or two. Maybe.

PT. BONITA PILSNER
Pt Bonita is our Bohemian Pilsner. It’s crisp and spicy from the rye malt and noble hops, yet has enough body from the rustic grains to accompany your breakfast, lunch or dinner. Named after the lighthouse northwest of the famed Golden Gate Bridge, this beer will shine a light on the modern pilsner.
- Hops: Styrian Bobek, Styrian Golding

CURRENT TAPROOM-ONLY BEERS
LAFAYETTE LIGHT LAGER
Warm weather and our American Light Lager = a perfect pairing. Coming in at a crushable 4.7% ABV this beer keeps it simple. Highest quality pilsner and 2-row malt along with a pinch of flaked rice, combined with a light hopping regime make for a crisp and quenching beer you’ll keep coming back to.

GLASS OFF IPA
Glass off (an exceptionally smooth takeoff when hang-gliding) IPA pours golden with a very mild haze with white head. Not a “hazy” but definitely unfiltered, there are huge aromas of pineapple and other tropical fruits, with background notes of coconut and peach. More tropical fruit with balanced bitterness on the palate, this IPA is smooth sailing. Leap off into your next adventure with us!

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!
