In the dead of winter it's easy to catch yourself daydreaming of lounging on some far off beach, enjoying a cocktail out of a pineapple as waves crash at your feet. We also had our head in the clouds, and decided to create a beer that could transport us to that remote island in the sun. John B Juice is loaded with pineapple, pomegranate and lactose, creating a creamy, full bodied wheat ale that greets your palate with waves of refreshing tropical fruit. No sunscreen or Hawaiian shirt needed.

Sometimes when you want an IPA, you REALLY want an IPA. That's where Moon Cannon comes in. This West Coast Double IPA stands out from the crowd with a crisp caramel malt backbone and an absurd lupulin powder dry hop, creating a powerfully resinous and dank offering. There may be a thousand IPAs to choose from these days, but there’s only one Moon Cannon.
4.8% ABV | 50 IBU
Huge hop character without the punch from a high ABV is one of the newest innovations under the IPA umbrella. Southwest Session IPA has more pounds of hops per barrel than any house IPA in the state and remains aromatic and flavorful without being aggressively bitter. Equinox is the reigning hop variety supported by Citra Mosaic and a pinch of Chinook.
6.5% ABV | 95 IBU
What’s considered outrageous by most is what we call perfection. Big tropics define Scale Tipper IPA, our most decorated achievement to date. Mosaic, El Dorado, Citra and Simcoe create one juicy and uniquely satisfying American IPA.
6.1% ABV | 22 IBU
Grab your tent, sleeping bag and hiking shoes, because we’re going on an adventure with this very special release! Lactose, cocoa nibs, wildflower honey, fresh vanilla bean and one hundred pounds of marshmallows make this sweet stout the perfect way to enjoy a campfire nightcap without venturing too far from the friendly confines of the taproom.
DRIFTWOOD OATMEAL STOUT
5.9% ABV | 20 IBU
Nearly black with ruby highlights, Driftwood’s coffee, chocolate, and roasty tones enhance the rich, malt character. This well-balanced, full-bodied ale is, most importantly, a pleasure to drink!
