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.

  • Hops: Styrian Golding
  • Grains: Pilsner, Rye, Wheat
  • 4.7% ABV

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.

  • Hops: CTZ, Eureka, Amarillo, Altus
  • Grains: 2-row, Rye, Honey Malt
  • 8.8% ABV
  • 88 IBUs

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
  • Malt: Pilsner & Rye
  • 5.3% ABV
  • 38 IBUs

LIGHTSHIP SOUR SOLERA

Starting as our Pt. Bonita Pilsner, this beer is aged in various barrels – cabernet, chardonnay, pinot noir, neutral and whiskey. This solera style has roots to our very first batch of pilsner as each year we leave a few gallons behind in the barrels to kick off the next year’s batch. Each vintage is unique as different wild yeasts and bugs vie in the barrel to come out. 

  • 5.3% ABV
  • 35 IBUs

TRAILBLAZER IPA LATEST RELEASES

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.

TILDEN HAZY IPA

Celebrating 85 years of Tilden. $1 / 4-pack or pint supports the Regional Parks. Plenty of spots in Tilden Regional Park to take a break for the views and wildlife and a cold one (BYO coozie). 4 grains and 3 hops (Citra, Mosaic, and a new Yakima hop currently dubbed “HBC-630”) deliver juicy, refreshing goodness.

LANDS END HAZY IPA

The views from Lands End Lookout are hard to beat – even on a cold and windy San Francisco day. BYO sunshine with this juicy tropical hazy IPA, its hoppy goodness provided by a blend of Mosaic, Strata, Idaho 7, Cascade and Sabro hops.

COWBOY CAMP HAZY IPA

Gotta love minimalist camping – getting out and bedding down under the Milky Way. Ditch the tent but allow 32 oz for a couple of hazies. The combo of Sultana and Cashmere hops on a Pilsner malt base explodes with tropical, melon and citrus notes.

NORTH PEAK HAZY IPA

“Hop whisperer” Anton Lutz has us loving German hops in our IPAs but this time we’re partnering with the all-American classics of Columbus and Citra. A hazy hop bomb exploding with aromas of tropical fruits, melon and citrus.
