We are loving the new Oud Kriek! This is our two year aged version of 2015 Oud Kriek, our Barrel Aged Sour Cherry Ale. It started as a Belgian style golden ale, then we aged it for twenty four months in Pinot Noir, Syrah and Makers Mark whiskey barrels with Brett, Lacto and Oregon Tart Cherries.. It is a sour aficionado’s dream come true, with an intense tartness and delicious, delicate cherry and stone fruit notes. Aging it for an extended period beautifully balanced and blended all the wine, wood, whiskey, fruit and wild yeast flavors. 8% ABV
For our dark beer lovers we also have a delicious new Barrel Aged Imperial Stout, Black Sabbath. Aptly named, Black Sabbath is dark and heavy, melodically smooth and intense. Barrel aged in Wild Turkey barrels for 22 months, it is a very complex brew, fermented with the Westmalle Trappist Ale yeast. It has a huge Bourbon and Oak nose, with complimenting flavors of vanilla, smoke, chocolate and a very fruit forward funky character from the yeast and extended barrel aging time.This is a very special, small batch beer, perfect for the holidays. 9% ABV
We are so honored and pleased that our first year entering in The California State Fair Craft Beer Competition we are taking home an award!
We have a fresh batch of Angel Dust, our Belgian style White IPA coming out next week. Get some while you can, this beer sells out fast!

It’s fermented with Ecuadorian cocoa nibs and a Trappist ale yeast, with an ABV of 9.1% and 31 IBUs. Brewed as a collaboration with Linden Street Brewing as part of The Oakland Beer Drinkers Association Series. This is a very special limited release so be sure to treat yourself while it’s still around.
We have a delicious new beer brewing! It’s a Belgian Style White IPA with 70 IBUs and 7% ABV. Angel Dust is remarkably dank and aromatic with notes of grapefruit,
eucalyptus, mandarin orange and a slight hint of coriander. Adorned with a plethora of Simcoe and Mosaic hops, Angel Dust threatens to become a delectable addiction for many a hophead.
