The German word “Helles” translates as “light” and “Lager” means “to store”. This beer style emerged in Germany through the Spaten Brewery’s marriage of British, Bohemian and German brewing techniques. This style is an integral part of brewing history and a predecessor of the straw-colored, light-bodied beers which are the most widely consumed beers in the world today. The lager yeast ferments the beer more slowly and at lower temperatures; it is then stored for maturation.
No Blokes Brown Ale
No Blokes is an homage to the great English style brown ales from the old world. With a prune like fruitiness, lots of rich carmel and just a bit of English bitterness. The final product is a beer you can sip a single glass of or enjoy all afternoon.
Sonoma Pale Ale
Our Sonoma Pale Ale is a floral pale ale brewed with cascade and Citra hops and dry hopped with Citra hops. When we created the Sonoma Pale we were looking for a great easy drinking pale that matched the easy going culture of the area. The final outcome was exactly what we were looking for. With a light amber color, a floral citrusy aroma and a great citrus hop flavor and finish. The beer is easy going down with just a touch of bitter at the end that makes you want to lift your glass again to take another sip.
