Currently On Tap

  • Pale Ale

    Its unique piney and grapefruit aromas from the use of whole-cone American hops have fascinated beer drinkers for decades and made this beer a classic.

    Draught-Style Pale Ale

    The draught version of our flagship bottle-conditioned Pale Ale, Draught-style Pale Ale is slightly sweeter and lower in alcohol, making it a nice session beer.

    Kellerweis®

    A hazy wheat ale—untamed, unfiltered and unafraid. With a full, fruity aroma and notes of spicy clove and banana bread, Kellerweis is truly a unique brew.

    Torpedo® Extra IPA

    The first beer to feature our “Hop Torpedo”—a revolutionary dry-hopping device that controls how much hop aroma and what kind is imparted into beer without adding additional bitterness.

    Porter

    Brewed in the hop-forward American style and featuring a depth of malt flavor and complexity with roasted notes of black coffee and cocoa.

    Stout

    Big, rich, bold, black as night, and filled with the wild-eyed passion of which dreams are made.

  • Harvest Wet & Wild Cluster IPA

    We hand-picked these unique wild hops and used them wet—undried—in our kettles to create a truly unique one-of-a-kind beer with bright lemony citrus notes and an herbal grassy character.

    Old Chico Brand™ Crystal Wheat

    This filtered beer is brewed with malted wheat and barley, and perfectly balanced by unique Crystal hops.

    Harvest Wet Hop IPA - Northern Hemisphere Harvest

    The fourth in our 2014 Harvest series, Northern Hemisphere Harvest® spans a flavor spectrum from bold, earthy, green hop flavors to hints of citrus, fresh herbs and pine.

    Old Chico Brand™ ESB

    Old Chico ESB is our take on the classic “extra special” English pub ale: robust yet easy drinking with a toasty biscuit-like malt body and spicy and floral hop aroma from American-grown English hop varietals. ESB is delicately balanced and pairs well with summertime solidarity.

    Pilsner

    German-style pilsners are the original session beers. Our version of this classic style is loaded with floral and spicy hop flavor and balanced by a crisp and dry finish.

    Barrel-Aged Narwhal

    Barrel-Aged Narwhal is our massive Imperial Stout aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels. This beer has layers of malt flavor with notes of espresso and baker’s cocoa with a touch of vanilla from the barrels.

  • Harvest Wild Hop IPA - Neomexicanus Varietal

    The finale in our 2014 Harvest series features Neomexicanus, a wild hop native to the U.S. that imparts striking melon and apricot aromas as well as a floral undercurrent and citrus-like flavor.

    Boomerang IPA

    A “Yankee-Aussie” IPA featuring the light malt body of an American IPA blended with the robust flavors of Southern Hemisphere hops.

    Ovila® Abbey Tripel

    Ovila Abbey Tripel is a deceptively robust golden ale with complex floral hop notes and a traditional Belgian yeast’s fruity, peppery kick.

    Estate Homegrown Ale

    From our fields comes a remarkable homegrown ale, made with organic wet hops and barley grown at our brewery here in Chico and one of the few estate-made ales produced anywhere in the world!

    Bigfoot® Barleywine-style Ale

    Bigfoot is a beast of a beer, brimming with bold flavors of bittersweet malt and heaps of aggressive whole-cone Pacific Northwest hops.

    Audition Pumpkin Ale

    Estate-grown butternut squash lends impressions of freshly baked pumpkin pie, specifically the sweetness and spice packed into its warm crust, to this medium-bodied ale.

  • Celebration IPA

    A special ale for the holidays, Celebration IPA features the first hops of the growing season. This pioneering ale is full of complex flavors and aromas from the generous use of whole cone American hops.
