Sweet Water Brewing Hash Session IPA

From the Brewer – “Cooling out on the dock, jamming tunes and popping tops, waiting for da rod to bend. Gist of the grist is mellow at 4.20% ABV, laying down the base to showcase the blazin’ Amarillo hop hash sunset.

The star of the show here is the hops, specifically the hop hash! We kept the malt bill light to allow the hops to shine through.

We dosed this sucker with a boatload of Amarillo Hop Hash. Pungent with floral, tropical citrus fruit flavors and the hop hash gives it that one of a kind chewy, gooey, resiny mouthfeel. As the chase, we are giving it a hefty dry hop to enhance the potent aromas. Ahtanum gives it orange and grapefruit tones, Crystal for a little kick of spiciness, and El Dorado bringing some pear and watermelon characteristics.”

Harpoon’s UFO RAZ

Harpoon-UFO-RAZWe came up with the idea for this beer years ago when we brewed a Framboise as part of the 100 Barrel Series. Some Harpooners mixed the Framboise with UFO Hefeweizen to balance the tart raspberry with the clean and crisp wheat malt. So brewing this beer as part of the UFO line was only natural – like the raspberries it’s brewed with.

From the Brewer – “Natural raspberry flavors are added to our UFO Hefeweizen to create this beer. Consistent with the Hefeweizen style, this beer is unfiltered and cloudy with a solid foamy head. UFO R.A.Z. has a distinctive, hazy rose color. The scent of fresh raspberries hits the nose immediately, along with a subtle bready aroma from the wheat and yeast. The body is light and the unfiltered yeast provides a soft mouthfeel. The taste of the fruit compliments the beer nicely, neither overwhelms the other. There is a faint sweetness on the palate, which finishes cleanly in a semi-dry, tart finish.”

Kona Brewing Longboard Island Larger

Kona-Brewing-Longboard-Island-LargerExceptionally Smooth

From the Brewer – “Longboard Island Lager is a smooth refreshing lager fermented and aged for weeks at cold temperatures to yield its exceptionally smooth flavor. A delicate, slightly spicy hop aroma complements the malty body of this beer.

Longboard Island Lager typically pairs well with lighter fare but has enough flavor and body to stand up to some heartier foods too. Try some with herb chicken on mixed greens, garlic twists, Greek pizza.

Sierra Nevada Nooner® Pilsner


A crisp, hoppy take on the original session beer.

Origin of Pilsner – In the Western Bohemian city of Pilsen (Plzeň) in the Czech Republic, the beer-loving citizens were fed up with the lack of quality in their local brew, so they looked for help in neighboring Germany—specifically Bavaria—where the brewers had already earned a reputation as master beer makers. Brewmaster Josef Groll was hired to take on the task of creating a new Bohemian beer brewed with Bavarian quality. Groll chose to brew a beer using local Czech ingredients—sweet and nutty Moravian malt and lightly bitter but aromatic Saaz hops—combined with lager yeast imported from Bavaria. The Moravian malt was made in a new type of kiln which used indirect heat to produce very pale malt, and when combined with Pilsen’s naturally soft water resulted in the world’s first pale lager. In October 1842, this combination of circumstances—history, location, and technology—created a style which would grow to dominate the beer world for more than a century.

From the Brewer – “Gather your friends, pack the gear, and head out to wherever the day may take you. A midday go-to, Nooner is our take on the classic German-style pilsner—one of the original session beers. Nooner is easy drinking yet packed with the big flavor of spicy and floral whole-cone hops. Its brilliant golden color begs you to take a sip and sink your taste buds into an extremely welcoming beer, full of flavor and balanced by a crisp, dry finish.”

Great with cured ham and Gruyere Croque Madame, Wood grilled Mahi, Portobello Mushroom and Spring Pea Pasta.

Ballast Point Grunion Pale Ale


A new Pale Ale where hops run the show.

Our Grunion Pale Ale wasn’t born on a beach, but in a backyard.  Originating from an employee-only home-brew contest, this award-winning hoppy pale ale is named after the tiny local fish known for late night frolics on shore.  A pair of new hop varieties lend strong yet balanced summer melon aromas and herbal flavors, while a soft caramel malt sweetness holds it all together.

From the Brewer – “An International Pale Ale with a strong hop flavor from the use of two new hop varieties, American Mosaic & Calypso. Both hops give off pungent summer fruit aromas and flavors with hints of pineapple, ripe cantaloupe, basil, cherry blossoms, spruce & grapefruit. The underlying nutty malt base has hints of toasted bagel and fresh crepes from the use of Marris Otter barley and Carapils malt. Color is deep golden to a light orange.

Great with Yellow curry with shrimp, Creamy pesto pasta, Crepe with tropical fruit or Muenster cheese.

Captain Lawrence Liquid Gold

Captain-Lawrence-Liquid-GoldFrom the Brewer – “Don’t let the golden color fool you — this isn’t your father’s lite beer! Brewed with imported German malts and US-grown hops, this beer is a full-flavored introduction to craft-brewed beer. We add the hops late in the boil, allowing you to enjoy the flavor and aroma of the hops without an aggressive bitterness. Aromas of orange, spice, and green grass. Clean malt-dominated flavor, with a subdued bitterness playing in the background of the aromas of this beer.”

A great match with fish and chicken, both sautéed and grilled, especially with citrus and herbs preparations. Shellfish steamed in Liquid Gold is a match made in beer heaven.

Hops: Crystal, Sterling, Cascade.
Malts: German Pilsner and Vienna.
Original Gravity: 15.5 Plato
