A kegged up version of the bottle. Try it on tap, if you enjoy it, take home a bottle!
This is a very special beer for us. Brewed with 100% California ingredients. The hops were thrown in the boil fresh off the vine, a once a year occurrence! They were grown locally here in South County Santa Cruz in Watsonville. The grain was grown in California and malted in California's only malting facility, Admiral Malting!
Brewed in collaboration with Bike Santa Cruz County. $1 of every pint, $2 of every Crowler, and $4 from every Growler will be donated to the nonprofit.
A crisp, light, easy drinking lager with mild bitterness.
A deep, dark, roasty character. Light bodied with mild bitterness on the finish. Low carbonation and dry for sessionability.
One sip of this and you'll be imaging yourself on a tropical island, Crowler in hand.
