  1. Societe [et al] Capital of the Craft IPA 7.3% 

    Brewed to celebrate San Diego’s world-renowned craft brewing community, this is the fifth iteration of a collaboration beer organized by the San Diego Brewers Guild and its brewery members. This year’s recipe features some new hop varieties. Azzaca and California-grown barley for the grain bill. Each sip of this delicious hop-forward IPA will satisfy your tastebuds and leave you proud to be supporting Americas’s finest Brewers and the Capital of Craft.

  2. Eppig Hoppy Pils 5.5%

    It’s always pilsner weather in San Diego, and this magical blend of hops and Pilsner malt hits the spot. Soft, ‘cracker-like’ pilsner malt aroma is complimented with bright citrusy American hops. Dry-hopped with Mosaic and Centennial. 

  3. Brasserie de la Senne | Cantillon Saison de la senne

    Saison blended with lambic from Cantillon and aged in barrels. An extremely complex but at the same time very refreshing beer. It somehow remembers a hoppy guess with a distinct bitterness. Indeed, the saisons were generously hopped for the well-know keeping properties of hops. Also, they were often dry-hopped , as is the case here. Saison de la Senne has been barrel-aged for three years before bottling. Amber in color, its nose reminds one of Lambic, with notes of fallen apples, wood, leather, and the typical funky character of the Bretts. In the mouth, a soft tartness is present, quickly leading to dryness. The aromas of the nose are completed by those of spelt and rye, quince, green gooseberries and a complex vinous character. The finish is bitter but perfectly in balance.
