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
  • 15 IBUs

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

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. 

  • Hops: Hersbrucker
  • Grains: Pilsner, 2-Row, Flaked Rice
  • 4.7% ABV
  • 8 IBUs

ZAMBA SMASH PALE ALE

Our first Pale Ale made with the BSG Zamba hop blend has us dancing our happy dance. This dry pale ale has strong notes of mango and pineapple along with hints of stone fruit and orange. This SMASH (single malt and single hop) comes in at a bone dry 6.3% abv and still leaves us ready for another. Not overly bitter and not too sweet. A great early summer beer.

  • Hops: Zamba
  • Grains: 2-Row
  • 6.3% ABV
  • 45 IBUs

CASTLE ROCK JUICY IPA

Spring normally means the start of picnic and birthday party season in the Castle Rock Recreation Area. We know we’ll be back, but for now we’ll honor good memories with a juicy IPA that pairs perfectly with a picnic in our beer garden on a warm day. Brewed with a new “Sitiva” hop blend, look for exceptional smoothness and floral notes along with peach, lime and tropical fruit.

  • Hops: Sitiva
  • Grains: Pilsner, Malted Oats
  • 6.8% ABV
  • 20 IBUs

TALL ORANGE TREES IPA

Our first Lafayette-brewed West Coast IPA brings out the new Sequoia hop blend from BSG and WOW do we love it. With 2-row and Maris Otter for some malty sweetness, this beer is the perfect balance of intense orange citrus, mango, and pine along with an approachable bitterness.

  • Hops: Sequoia
  • Grains: 2-Row, Maris Otter
  • 7.4% ABV
  • 74 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

SANDBAGGER HAZY PALE ALE

This hazy pale ale uses the newest experimental hops from Hopsteiner and without a doubt we will be using them again. This beer has a nice white head and straw yellow haze. It drinks very smooth, almost too smooth and is accompanied by a nose of citrus, tropical fruits, floral notes, and a hint of strawberry. This beer has a very smooth drinkability and doubles down on the citrus and tropical flavors across the palate as well.

  • 6.0% ABV
  • 20 IBUs

TRAILBLAZER IPA LATEST RELEASES

#EarnYourHeadlands with some steep climbs and fast descents in Wildcat Canyon, and toast yourself with our latest hazy, loaded with intense hop varietals that deliver a pop of citrus, tropical fruit, and berry notes.

FOUR PEAKS HAZY IPA

Mt Diablo State Park’s Four Peaks are challenging and aspirational. A decent analogy for the path we’ve taken to our brewery and taproom in the East Bay, and brewed to celebrate another hill conquered.
