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.

8.8% ABV
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.

5.3% ABV
38 IBUs
Malt: Pilsner & Rye
Hops: Styrian Bobek, Styrian Golding

BRIONES

Briones pours a lovely and slightly peachy straw with a sustaining haze. Richer notes of apricot, melon rind, and tangerine waft from the glass. Briones saves its floral character for the palate, gentle creamy malt is quickly balanced by medium bitterness from a more pronounced verdant pine resin. Silky smooth on the tongue with lingering carbonation on the finish, we enjoy the simplicity and beauty of Briones, just like our favorite local regional park. Cheers!

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

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.
