rotating specialty beers
San Mateo brewery
acequia wet hop ipa
7% ABV | 100 IBU
There’s a small window of time every year where fresh, whole-cone hops are available and elated brewers produce some of the finest one-off libations. Fresh Chinook and Cascade hops inundate your palate and nose with spicy, earthy and citrus notes washing over a mildly complex, medium-bodied malt foundation.
6.2% ABV | 65 IBU
With a tropical fruit nose and hazy appearance, Beermosa is a refined blend of citrus fruit and hops, reminiscent of the classic brunch cocktail. This hazy pale ale is juicy, medium bodied and refreshing!
5.3% ABV | 20 IBUs
Light and toasty, this Golden Ale is a treat! Oat Gold is slightly sweet with a delicate hop profile. Spicy, savory, or sweet this beer pairs well with any feast!
6.3% ABV | 15 IBU
Last year we partnered with Habitat for Humanity to craft a breakfast stout inspired by that first morning in your new home, and we’ve brought it back! Red Rock cold pressed coffee and ten gallons of Vermont maple syrup capture the best elements of breakfast to create a toasty yet balanced ale with subtle hints of maple sweetness and earthy roast.
Down in the Hollow
5.3% ABV | 25 IBU
Rich and toasty with subtle layers of caramel and cocoa nibs, Down in the Hollow is a traditional iteration of an English Brown Ale that perfectly captures the changing seasons here in New Mexico. Nuanced hints of earthy hops and toasty malts create a classically balanced offering perfect for these crisp late summer evenings.
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!
7% ABV | 40 IBU
Our brewery team used the amyloglucosidase enzyme to help ferment all residual sugars out, resulting in a bone-dry IPA that lets the hop aromatics shine through without much bitterness on the palate.
