New beers from @alvaradostreetbrewery
SUMMER SUMMER SUMMER
Collaboration juicy double IPA with our friends from Moksa Brewing in Rocklin. We've combined our methods to bring you an assertively bangin' hop aroma & flavor in this beer, with a pillowy-soft mouthfeel and very low bitterness. Simcoe & Citra take the lead with amplified fruity esters courtesy of an expressive, English yeast strain.
DeLOREAN DUST
If Doc Brown were to jump in his time machine on a quest to drink a Double IPA in 2017, this would certainly be his beer! A modern take on the ever changing IPA style. We've combined forces from two of our favorite yeasts to squeeze out as much pulpy, tropical-fruit laden ester character as possible, THEN introduced a not-so small amount of cryo powder in the dry hop to further augment an oily, luscious hop aroma and flavor. Soft, silky texture, light bitterness, high drinkability.
VENGEFUL BARBARIAN
Bright, peach heavy tones from an East Coast yeast strain fermentation and a dry hop that includes a bunch of our favorites. The result is a hop aroma and flavor chock full of ripe, juicy grapefruit and apricot jam. On the back end, we've loaded up with beer with lots of oats, so it has a soft, creamy texture to support mild hop bitterness.
CONTAINS NO JUICE
Double IPA fermented with a formerly classified Brettanomyces yeast strain that produces intense tropical aromas and flavors. We augment these yeast esters with Citra, Mosaic, and touch of Galaxy in the dry hop, resulting in a total juice bomb. It also has a beautiful orangey haze, and creamy mouthfeel from the addition of flaked oats.

AMIGOS
Delorean, Lamborghini....and now Isuzu. Amigo that is, 1992 to be exact. The next in our unofficial "car" series is dedicated to brewer Kevin Brown's insanely radical ride. Elegant fermentation character, dank hops, heirloom floor malted British barley for body and balance.

SPACED OUT collaborative effort from Alvarado St & Moonraker @alvaradostreetbrewery @moonrakerbrewing I believe this is 8+%a.b.v. Two great breweries have made magic with this pure juice bomb!!! #beersnob #beernerd #beerlife #ipaday #beergeek #beergasm #craft #craftbeer #craftnotcrap #auburnbeer #sacbeer #salinasbeer #brothasandcraftbeer #spenselocness

SPACED OUT
Collaboration Double IPA with Moonraker. Using a blended yeast strain to drive tropical aromatics and flavor compounds, we've then used both cryo and traditional pellets in the dry hop for an uber bright, fruity & dank hop character. The addition of Oregon estate heirloom barley from Mecca Grade Malting and a sizable portion of Spelt gives it a pillowy, chewy texture.
HALF TIME TREAT
A beer inspired by nostalgic soccer games of our youth, Halftime Treat is fermented with expressive yeast for a fruity aroma & flavor profile, and then dry hopped with Simcoe, Citra & Mosaic for a pronounced citrus character. We then augment the base beer with Valencia oranges, vanilla & a touch of lactose to transform it into an orange creamsicle of a beer.

HAZING SADDLES
Wyatt Burp's ale of choice. A hazy Double IPA that's enjoyed fermentation with an expressive blend of yeasts for a horse kick to the face of juicy hops, brought to you by Bru-1 & Mosaic. Foam on the range thanks to local Admiral Feldblume malt & Mecca Grade Wickiyup hard red wheat.
MAI TAI PA
2015 GABF gold medal winner, & 2016 GABF silver medal winner: International-style Pale Ale category. Our drier, decidedly "tropical" IPA that's light on bitterness, but heavy on hop aroma, courtesy of 100% Mosaic hops. One whiff and you get super intense notes of passion fruit, mango, and lychee. Grain bill of just American two-row malt and a clean fermentation keep it simple and allow these hops to shine.
FAITH NO SMORE
A stout for summer? How about one that's built around s'mores - chocolate, graham cracker & toasted marshmallow. A little bit of smoked malt for complexity.
CHERISH THE DAY
Cherish the day, don't go astray, don't be afraid. Sade's lyrics say it all...take this gorgeous American lager and share it with a special friend. It's delicate malt character, gentle kiss of hops and exquisitely dry finish will leave you savoring every moment of life.

I’D FLOCCS WID IT
This IPA is fermented with expressive yeast to produce all the "Juice" character you'd want in a NE-style IPA, but we brightened it up to look West Coast and polished. Intensely fruity in aromatics, soft bitterness, and a pale, hazy straw color.

Taste the rainbow 🌈 🍻

2 years of dating a beer geek, and I am now a beer geek 🔥 @alvaradostreetbrewery is def in my top breweries list 👌🏽 Y’all need to try their pie-inspired blue berry kettle sour ale called @biggieee’s Blue Berry Brunch Bonanza ❤️

Some new arrivals from @alvaradostreetbrewery
BIGGIE’S BLUEBERRY BRUNCH BONANZA
A pie-inspired kettle sour ale brewed with blueberries and Tahitian vanilla beans. Liquid slice of heaven in a glass!
IMPERIAL INTERNATIONAL STYLE JUICE
Our follow up collaboration to International-style Juice brewed at Reuben’s in May 2017. This Imperial version presents all the glorious Mosaic, Citra & Amarillo oily goodness in tandem with afruity fermentation courtesy of an expressive yeast strain.

Sampling some more NorCal brews while watching the World Cup yesterday. Cheers! 🍻⚽️🍻

Another killer IPA got tapped today!

DDH MAI TAI
Our drier, decidedly “tropical” IPA that’s light on bitterness, but heavy on hop aroma, courtesy of 100% Mosaic hops. One whiff and you get super intense notes of passion fruit, mango, and lychee. Grain bill of just American two-row malt and a clean fermentation keep it simple and allow these hops to shine. This batch is dry hopped twice for more Mosaic aroma and flavor.

OKO BOMB
¡Oko Bomb! is one of our favorite seasonal stouts. The base is a rich, silky smooth, black as the dead of night stout that is pretty darn fantastic in its own right, but what comes next is where the real fun begins. We work with our local friends at Twenty Four Blackbirds to gain access to a heap of oko caribe cacao nibs. We add these to the base beer along with a ridiculous amount of fresh Madagascar vanilla beans to bring out that delectable milk chocolate flavor.

GROWERS PALE
Dedicated to the Ag workers of the Salinas Valley, this is a juicy, hop forward beer that drinks more like an IPA than a traditional balanced American pale ale. The yeast strain produces nectarine-like, stone fruit esters which blend beautifully with dank hops like Eureka, Mosaic & Azacca. Enjoy this rather hazy interpretation of what we think is a damn delicious hoppy pale ale.

ALL ABSOLUTES
Some new TIPA juice we’re pretty excited about! All Absolutes is fermented with an expressive yeast strain and hit hard with Mosaic, Bru-1 and Idaho 7.

Were sold out of cans but just tapped a keg of Cool Runoffs from @alvaradostreetbrewery
All the tropical Mosaic you can handle with supporting roles by candy-like El Dorado, and citrusy Amarillo. Fermented with an expressive yeast that attenuates to a lesser degree, leaving a silky mouthfeel and softness on the palate.

Enjoying the nice late spring weather with my wife in our newly decorated patio which is now “the oasis”. @alvaradostreetbrewery Riot Punch DIPA to relax to, with the tropical juice of pineapple and tangerine with a nice bitterness to round it out.

SIMCOE DEPENDENT
West Coast IPA 100% hopped with one of our favorites, Simcoe.
HAOLE PUNCH
We employ a unique, fast souring process to these "kettle soured" ales that adds a rich, clean acidity which sets the stage to allow different fruits to shine. In "punch" (as it's referred to in the brewpub), we add passion fruit, orange zest, and guava to simulate the flavor and aroma of POG Juice (or Hawaiian Punch). There's an pleasant tartness and zesty effervescence that makes this beer literally taste like juice. Those who enjoy sour beers, or have any open mind to understand what the limits of beer can be, will thoroughly enjoy this beer.
CHAMPAGNE HOPI
Our first iteration of a Brut IPA! Employing an enzyme to assist a neutral ale strain in fermenting all available sugar in the wort, this IPA is bone dry, yet incredibly drinkable and hopped with Mosaic, Citra & Azacca. It's not fined so there's a bit of hop haze, and carbonation is quite high for an effervescent, refreshing character.
COOL RUNNINGS
All the tropical Mosaic you can handle with supporting roles by candy-like El Dorado, and citrusy Amarillo. Fermented with an expressive yeast that attenuates to a lesser degree, leaving a silky mouthfeel and softness on the palate.
