Oscuro Navidad Grand Cru

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Oscuro Navidad Grand Cru is a Belgian-style ale with made-from-scratch dark Belgian Candi Syrup.  The beer is 10.5%ABV and a low 25 ibus so it comes across as big and sweet with a strong Belgian-style character.   The beer doesn’t have any fruit added, but the yeast has converted many of the sugars to some amazing fruity esters.  As the beer warms you can pick out different fruit flavors like grapes, plums and cherries.

The name means Dark Christmas and this beer is dark and I feel it is a great beer for sipping by the fire close to the Holidays.

Prost!

  • Introducing the Growler-of-the-Month Club

    card - photo

    So this isn’t a cheesy jelly-of-the-month club where we send you bad beer each month, but rather a huge discount (~50%) for those who get growler fills on a regular basis.   The program is simple,  sign up for a Growler-of-the-Month Club card for only $110 ($207 value!) get your free empty logo growler.  You can have it filled immediately, if you’d like!  Then stop in each subsequent month (any day of the week, any day of the month) and have it refilled for free for a whole year!

    If you register your card (optional), you will also receive a $10 credit for an appetizer or any food on your birthday.growler club

    The only fine print, is ($16 fill or less) which means that if we have a rare or higher alcohol beer and the cost is usually more than $16 that you’ll only have to pay the difference.  (for instance our West-Coast Glutton Double Red at 9.6% is usually $22 for a fill, you can get this for only $6 extra).  Even at $16 per fill, this is a huge savings, compare $110 to $207!

    They make great gifts for that craft beer person in the family too!   The rest of the details can be found on our website here.

    For those that don’t know where the name of the beer comes from , “Warrior” is a name of a yoga pose.  And lavender is a plant.  LOL.  The Lavender Warrior Saison comes in at whopping 10.5% & 25ibus and was made as a collaboration with Shelly and a few of the students from her studio.   Stop by at 3PM on Sat. Aug 23rd for the release party and meet the brewers of this delicious collaboration!

    New Marquee Sign in Brewery

    marquee sign 1

    Check out the new marquee sign that I designed and built.  It’s on display in the brewery on the back wall.  If you wanna see it in action, the timer is set from 5-9:30PM each night.  It’s pretty big too, 44 inches wide by 36 inches tall.  I can’t remember how many bulbs but it’s around eighty-eight 5w bulbs to make this thing work.   People have asked me why I didn’t make it out of LED’s.   Been there, done that.marquee sign 2
