Apricot Pulpit

Belgian Blonde w. Apricots

A Belgian-style blonde is great for so many things largely due to its character and how you have to approach it. This is not a crusher, or a fast drinking style, but one to savor, reflect, and slow time down with. That said, these won’t bog you down or sit heavy like your typical slow sipping beer. Our pulpit series plays in tandem with this approachable style by adding seasonal fruits that create a full sermon of flavor. Imagine jam on biscuits, and other comforting qualities.

Santa Chela

Mexican Dark Lager

5.1% ABV

This Mexican-style Dark Lager pours a malty caramel color with a tan head. Light breadiness on the aroma and caramel malt backs the palate. This fresh lager is just fine without a lime, an easy drinker with minimal sweetness.

Holy Ghost 

Pilsner

5.5% ABV

A classic clean and crisp core Pilsner. Extremely refreshing flavor. The fact that this quenching style is so bright looking and clean tasting is a reflection of the brewers (and breweries) craft, passion, and patience.

Pink Limeade is a sour ale that will zap your tongue with enough voltage to light up a neon sign! With a focus on Caribbean-like flavors combined with a California approach to souring, this is a beer that will brighten up your day, or night.

Sister Wednesday

Hazy IPA

6.8% ABV

Brewed with a delicious hop blend of Nelson, Strata, and Citra. Featuring aromas of ripe stonefruit with tropical and citrusy notes on the palate, Sister Wednesday is creepy and kooky and finishes with a lingering piney bitterness.

Beersquatch

Beersquatch has qualities of the Pacific Northwest with an aroma of conifer, dark berries, and forest floor. If you find the aroma similar to Cascade, Chinook, or Mosaic hops, tread the trail with a watchful eye…

Third Circle

Belgian Tripel

8.7% ABV

This Belgian-Style Tripel is a smooth and dangerously easy drinking beer brewed with tradition Trappist ale yeast. Aromas of banana esters transform into a light grassiness. It is comforting like fresh banana bread cooling on the windowsill with an aroma that trails you in. Stronger, sweeter, and more sprightly than your typical pale beer, it is perfect for any season.

Sister Strata

Wet Hop SH IPA

Collab with Coleman Agriculture (hops)

One of our absolute favorite IPAs all year! Juicy, strawberry and guava aroma-producing Strata hops were harvested fresh in Oregon, rushed to the brewery, and over 350 pounds of them were added in this year's version (2021). Sustainably grown by @colemanagriculture and certified @salmonsafe, these hops have zero impact on local watersheds and vital passageways for salmon and other wildlife to thrive.

Irreverent Wit

Belgian Wit

5.2% ABV

A light, yet cloudy, Belgian White Ale with aromas of citrus and light spice. Flavors of banana and bread move over the palate and finish with a dry yeast character. Lingering finish with notes of light spice and bread.

Rhubarbra Strawsand

Rhubarb Stawberry Sour Ale

5.5% ABV

Fruited with strawberry and rhubarb, this sour ale will be like a familiar song that is sweet, mellow, and something you can turn to every minute of the day. With a focus on the rhubarb, it also has accents of tart strawberries, and a rising finish of bready flavors.

Fashionably Late

Unfiltered WC IPA

This unfiltered IPA has a special anniversary edition of hard to come by hops such as Nelson, Galaxy, Citra, and liquid extract Incognito-Mosaic. When combined together they produce a burst of terpene rich, savory and fruitful flavors.

Laughing in Church

Whiskey BA Belgian Tripel w. Coffee

Collab with Andy Town SF (coffee)

This beer style spawned out of monastic brewing culture and has become a secularists staple in northwest Europe as a stronger, but still light bodied alternative to its Pilsner and lager producing neighbors. Bold notes of banana, maple, caramel, and marshmallow blend with smooth coffee flavors.

Halthy Spirit Part I

BBA Belgian Quad Ale

A monastery staple that is deeply rooted in Belgian brewing traditions. Being the irreverent souls that we are, we aged this one in all-American bourbon barrels giving this Quad-style ale flavors reminiscent of fluffy waffles with bananas and maple syrup.
