Currently On Tap

  • Narwhal® Imperial Stout

    Inspired by the mysterious creature that dwells in the deepest Arctic seas, Narwhal Imperial Stout is midnight black and bold—with notes of baker’s cocoa and dark roasted coffee. This massive imperial stout is incredibly complex and explores the darkest depths of malt flavor.

    Estate® Homegrown Ale

    Taste fresh-from-the-field flavors with this handmade, homegrown, and completely natural ale. Made with organic wet hops and barley grown at our brewery in Chico, this remarkable ale is the only one of its kind.

    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.

    Barrel-aged Torpedo

    Our year-round hop bomb aged in bourbon barrels with fresh Citra and Pacifica hops has an aggressive nose of tropical fruit that precedes coconut and vanilla.

    Ovila Abbey Quad with Plums

    Ovila Abbey Quad is heady with aromas of caramel, rich malt, and dark fruit – balanced by the spiciness and delicate fruity notes of a traditional Belgian yeast.

    Harvest Wet Hop IPA - Northern Hemisphere Harvest®

    Northern Hemisphere features wet hops—picked from the field and into the brewhouse within 24 hours. This complex IPA boasts intense herbal and green hop aromas as well as rose-like and citrus flavor.

  • 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.

    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.

    Tater Ridge

    This rich and malty Scottish ale gets a kick from sweet potatoes, a North Carolina staple.

    Knightro Irish-style Stout

    Black in color but surprisingly light in body with rich caramel and chocolate malty flavors.  It has a creamy mouthfeel and gentle carbonation from the use of a high percentage of Nitrogen instead of the typical carbon dioxide.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.

    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.

    Coffee Stout

    Our Coffee Stout is a fusion of dark roasted malts and rich, cold-brewed coffee for layers of bittersweet, fruity, dark chocolate and caramel-like flavors. .

    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.
