Mid-Size Brewing Company & Mid-Size Brewer of the Year

2016 Great American Beer Festival

Proudly Independent Since '89

Handcrafted Beer    San Diego, CA

Now Pouring


We brew this lager in tribute to the world’s biggest beer party. Vienna and Munich malts produce the deep golden color, nutty undertones, and toasted malt flavors characteristic of this renowned Bavarian beer style. Perle hops imported directly from the Hallertau region of Germany yield a smooth balanced finish. This year’s batch of Oktoberfest has arrived, and it tastes like we’re in for quite the celebration. Prost!
