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.

  • 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.

  • 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

ROOSTER TAIL HAZY PALE ALE

Hazy gold in color with a thin white head and medium-low carbonation. The alcohol is very mild to non detectable. The notes from the hops give notes of lemon lime, mango, tropical fruit, orange, and a hint of grass. This sits on a clean and light body of pilsner malt with wheat and oats that create the haze. This beer is very smooth and soft on the palate with a hint of zest with a short finish.

  • Hops: Styrian Wolf (whirlpool), Ekuanot (dry hop)
  • Grains: Pilsner, Wheat, Oats
  • 5.0% ABV

TURTLE ROCK PALE ALE

This west coast pale ale has a light white head sitting on a golden amber. Very low alcohol is perceived. Nice notes of citrus, grass, and fruit on the nose with a light and crisp mouthfeel. Flavors are citrus and slightly sweet. .

  • Hops: Mosaic (whirlpool), Styrian Wolf (dry hop)
  • Grains: 2-Row, Pilsner, Crystal 15
  • 5.2% ABV

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
