Hawk Hill

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.

4.7% ABV
15 IBUs
Malt: Pilsner, Rye, Wheat
Hops: Styrian Golding

Hill 88

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.

88 IBUs
Malt: 2-row, Rye, Honey Malt
Hops: CTZ, Eureka, Amarillo, Altus

Pt. Bonita

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.

POINT BREAK

Point Break pours a golden peach hue with medium haze, unripe straw highlights, and white sustaining head. Sweet but restrained caramel and toffee malt notes on the nose are balanced with a resounding cantaloupe, peach, and strawberry fruit character. Initial carbonation on the tongue fades to a silky mouthfeel with gentle caramel malt notes, peach and honeydew fruity esters, and a lingering spruce bitterness on the finish. Perfect for celebrating combating the waves typical of our fast flowing strait, or just appreciating the cool Pacific breeze, Point Break Hazy IPA just remains… oddly appropriate. Cheers!

HERO DIRT

Hero Dirt Juicy IPA pours light and crisp into your glass, featuring a light straw hue and a subtle haze. Fruit forward on the nose, expect notes of cantaloupe foremost balanced with subtle juniper. A bright and crisp mouthfeel with a light to medium carbonation is dominated by aforementioned melon fruit notes and finishes dry with a lingering pine bitterness. Reminiscent of a recent rain, Hero Dirt will treat you right whether in your glass or under your tires!

ZERO DAY

Take a tropical summer vacation with Zero Day Juicy IPA; fruit forward and crisp, you’ll soon be left with an empty glass and pining for another! Zero Day pours clean with a golden straw hue and very subtle haze. Mango and papaya aromas are balanced with a subtle floral character and gentle resinous conifer. Immediately fruit forward on the palate with notes of cantaloupe, green apple, and pear, Zero Day fades into a mild bitterness on the finish. A crisp and light mouthfeel and medium to low carbonation leads to an easy beer for any hour of the day!

Awesom-o West Coast IPA

We were tasting from the fermenter and the beer was awesome, and somehow our minds wandered back almost 20 years to classic South Park AWESOM-O (yes, some of us are getting old). Somehow the name stuck.

Awesome-O West Coast IPA pours clean and clear with a light golden hue. Sticky pine resin initially rising from the glass dominates the nose, complimented by more subtle tangerine and papaya aromas that begin to shine through. Bright initial carbonation on the palate is quickly overtaken by flavors of dry pine and juniper which dominate with forward bitterness slowly fading after each sip (or gulp)! Subtle orange flower and grapefruit notes rest behind this classically hop forward West Coast IPA; with Awesome-O, the name speaks for itself!

6.5% ABV

Malt: 2-Row, Vienna
Hops: Columbus, Triumph, Waimea, El Dorado, Citra, Strata
