Summer is here, like it or not, but we're helping you beat the heat with three excellent events to kick the season off right.  


A Very Awesome Evening featuring Modern Times
Wednesday, May 31, 5:00 PM

We've carefully selected a list of hazy, barrel-aged and sour brews from one of our favorite San Diego purveyors of radness, Modern Times.  The following list will be flowing at 5:00 PM (some may make an earlier appearance during the day), so come down, get stoked and sip some killer San Diego Beers.

Here's the list (subject to change, but we sure hope not):

Attack Frequency: Hazy IPA with Citra, Amarillo, El Dorado and Rakau hops, with guava and apricot added
Centaur Gardens: Hazy IPA with Simcoe, Citra and Souther Passion hops
Dinosaur World: Hazy Double IPA with Amarillo, Mosaic and Citra hops
Clear and Present Dankness: Hazy IPA collab with Cellarmaker, with Simcoe, Citra, Galaxy and Nelson Sauvin hops
Drop Art: Tart Saison brewed with mango and orange zest
Oracle of the Bottle: Red Wine Barrel-Aged Sour with Cabernet grapes added
Monsters Park: Imperial Stout aged in Bourbon Barrels

The Sour Side of Sudwerk Thursday, June 8, 5:00 PM Sudwerk out of Davis is well known for their excellent interpretations of German-style beers.  But in recent years, they've been experimenting with funked up, sour and barrel-aged beers, with great success.  We'll be tapping four of these funky, barrel-aged sours for your sipping pleasure.  We'll have the following beers on tap: Funke Hop Farm: funky, tart saison, aged in Petite Syrah and Grenache barrels, dry-hopped with Nelson Sauvin, Citra and Simcoe hops Pluot is Not A Planet: sour saison aged in Pinot Noir barrels with pluots Buffalo Theory: sour oatmeal stout aged in Bourbon barrels Uncle Fester: barrel-aged sour doppelbock

Sante Adairius/Peter Hoey Hoeybier Batch 2 Release & Urban Roots Celebration
Wednesday, June 21, Time TBD

We've teased this event for a while now, but the beer has spoken, and Hoeybier Batch 2 is finally ready to be released!  Some of you may have joined us during Sacramento Beer Week 2016 for the release of Hoeybier Batch 1.  But for those of you not in the know, Hoeybier is a collaboration between Capitola's Sante Adairius Rustic Ales, makers of amazing oak-aged saisons, and Peter Hoey.  Brewed to celebrate a shared love of saison, and as an homage to Peter's legendary Odonata Saison, this beer is aged in Chardonnay and Riesling barrels from Hoey's brother (an excellent winemaker in his own right), then hopped to high heaven.  Tart, funky, hoppy and dry — this beer is high on the list for best beer we've ever quaffed.  We'll have the beer in bottles for sale (bottle limit TBD) and on draft.  Peter will be in the house, along with Tim and Adair from Sante, to toast to this beautiful beer and Urban Roots, Peter's new venture with our own Rob Archie. This is truly an event not to be missed.
