This series includes a list of beers that make up the backbone of our brewery, much like refraction is the backbone of all point breaks we love surfing. Some are seasonal. Some are consistent year-round. All are organic!
This beer was crafted to be our version of a lite drinking, clean, crisp Belgian-style pilsner. We tried hard, we really did, but in the end we crafted a gluten-reduced beer that still had a lot of flavor to compliment that clean, crisp body. And so just like when you have one foot close to the nose of the board, but its not quite there, we almost made a lite flavored beer. But when you try this beer, you'll realize this is one cheater worthy of praise.
ABV: 5.2% IBU: 19.7 Gluten-Reduced
Everyone needs a great sunrise in their life, and now you have one. This Belgian Blond has a fragrant nose of lemon and spice with a touch of sweetness. Clover honey flavors yield to green peppercorn finish. Easy drinking, this sunrise will help make the rest of your day enjoyable.
ABV: 6.8% IBU: 20.3
A classic Trappist delight modified Leashless style! Hints of black pepper and fruity yeast character blend seamlessly with the citrus and apricot notes from our hop additions. This easy drinking, light-bodied beer is delicious, and pairs well with cheeses, seafood and vegetables. But be careful, it is a big beer so respect is needed.
ABV: 8.7% IBU: 21.4
This Belgian Golden Strong is one devil of a beer! Hints of grass, honey and melon greet the palate as you enjoy this gluten-reduced beer. A crisp start and slightly sweet finish, this beer pairs well with vegetables, chicken, seafood or with good conversation.
ABV: 8.6% IBU: 24.5 Gluten-Reduced
This light-bodied ruby red Dubbel offers plum and dark fruit notes and finishes with a slight rum and cinnamon flavor. The smooth malt finish hides the strength of the beer as it warms . A great companion to red meat or chocolate, it's worth dubbeling down.
ABV: 7.3% IBU: 14.6
C'est La Vie
To celebrate our first year, which was challenged by the Thomas Fire blocks away from the brewery, we could only think of one beer worthy of the occasion: a Belgian Quad. Crafted with organic raw blue agave and chocolate malt, this decadent treat offers complex notes of molasses, chocolate, dark fruit. Like life, it encompasses success, survival, desire, struggle, and celebration.
ABV: 12.1% IBU: 19.9
Sometimes, in the dead of night with just a sliver of moon to guide the way, you can find the perfect session. Holding up a glass of our Belgian chocolate stout, you might see a guiding sliver of light penetrating through the chocolate darkness. And then you take your first sip and it hits you in waves of raisins, cherries, and chocolate. Sometimes you can find your midnight mission in the comfort of a chair, surrounded by good friends. It can be that easy, and sometimes it should be.
ABV: 6.8% IBU: 23.8
This is our Belgian chocolate stout aged on coconut. Medium bodied, this decadent treat offers up notes of coconut, chocolate and malty hints of dark fruit.
ABV: 6.8% IBU: 23.8 Gluten-Reduced
Pronounced “red eye”, this is our first seasonal beer and collaboration beer. Partnering with our friends from local organic coffee roaster Calioh Coffee Roasters, we incorporated their organic Brazilian medium roast coffee beans with our Midnight Mission Belgian chocolate stout recipe. So now you get peanut butter coffee notes added to the chocolate and dark fruit from Midnight Mission. Fall never tasted so good!
ABV: 6.8% IBU: 17.2 Gluten-Reduced
Organic Azacca, named after the Haitain god of agriculture, was chosen for this single hop session IPA due to Ventura county's agricultural roots. And the name Hillside Hop represents the beautiful Ventura hillside and is a shout out to the Ventura Land Trust, a local non-profit working to protect the natural beauty of Ventura's hillsides! And by being gluten-reduced, it can be enjoyed by all...just like Ventura's natural beauty.
ABV: 4.8% IBU: 34.5 Gluten-Reduced
stacked Pale Ale
This pale ale is crafted to be super crushable, enjoyable and gluten-reduced. Crafted with 3 different organic hop varieties, this beer offers wave after wave of hop flavor and aroma.
ABV: 5.2% IBU: 38.4 Gluten-Reduced
FOAMBALL HAZY IPA
The smooth mouthfeel of this hazy IPA blends harmoniously with its juicy, citrusy, fruitiness. Crafted almost exclusively with organic El Dorado hops, this easy drinking session-style beer is easier to take on than the foamball experienced when you drop in too deep on a set wave and it pinches on you. Sometimes it’s fun if you make it out the back, but we suggest a glass or two of Foamball as a safer, drier experience.
ABV: 5.5% IBU: 44.4
FOG BANK HAZY IPA
You can feel it roll in off the horizon, cooling things down. Notes of ripe pineapple and citrus rind overwhelm the senses as the fog rolls in. Smooth, refreshing, sessionable....this hazy IPA will become a welcomed sight to all.
ABV: 5.4% IBU: 44.4
May Grey HAZY IPA
The 3rd beer in our hazy IPA lineup, and it is a 100% grapefruit bomb. Juicy with an intense aroma, there's no denying this hazy 100% represents grapefruit and citrus! Add in a smooth mouthfeel and a modest alcohol content, this is the perfect summertime beer!
ABV: 5.7% IBU: 44.7
This IPA is for you Ventura. With flavors and aromas of navel oranges and mangoes, this IPA is crisp, easy drinking and laid-back, just like Ventura living!
ABV: 6.5% IBU: 64.5 Gluten-Reduced
Silky Lines Milkshake IPA
Brewed with organic Peruvian Golden Berries, organic lactose, and an obscene amount of organic hops, this smooth silky milkshake IPA is ripe with tropical fruit notes. A slightly tangy finish balances out the smooth mouthfeel and makes this beer taste like a mango flavored version of an orange Julius.
ABV: 6.2% IBU: 61
This is the first beer we brewed on our new system! Named after our project number with our brewery manufacturer, this beer represents all the good that can happen from a mistake. Originally intended to be a Belgian Dubbel-inspired double IPA, we hit a snag and bounced back with this delicious concoction. Hints of tropical fruit hop aroma and flavor blend with dark fruit malt character of a Belgian Dubbel to make it worthy of your glass. We think you'll agree that some mistakes are worth repeating!
ABV: 6.9% IBU: 68 Gluten-Reduced
SLOTTED DOUBLE IPA
Slotted, the art of being in the right place at the right time when surfing a wave so as to get barreled, rightly embodies this organic double IPA. Hopped with organic Bravo, Simcoe, and Cascade to enhance aroma and flavor, the hop flavors of candied guava and citrus balances the malt sweetness that pours into your glass. Getting slotted was never so easy.
ABV: 7.7% IBU: 84.1
