JUST IN AT BOTTLECRAFT NORTH PARK
El Segundo Clear AF
"Tribute to the crew at The Full Pint and their 10th anniversary. We thought somebody might have drilled holes in the bottom of the kegs this beer flew out so fast! Seeing as WE loved the beer AND our customers loved it, we figured... let's brew a big batch and get this in bottles. Chasing flavor over hype, this unabashedly West Coast IPA is bursting with aroma, finishes crisp, and is unapologetically clear -- AF. Nelson, Citra, Mosaic, El Dorado. Must we say more? 6.9% ABV"

BNS Revolver
"Hopped with Citra & Simcoe. This IPA has a clean, dry finish with great citrus notes that explode on the nose and palate. Revolver was awarded the 2015 GABF Gold Medal in the American India Pale Ale category. 6.5% ABV"
Hopheads Rejoice!
Beachwood Citraholic now available in cans!
"A 'modern' West Coast-Style IPA that's focused on Citra, one of our favorite new American hop varieties. Brewed with an abundance of Citra hops, we also blend in Warrior, Columbus, and Simcoe in the kettle for good measure. Citraholic is double dry hopped for two weeks with an abundance of Citra (and a touch of Columbus) imparting heavy aromas of citrus & tropical fruits with melon and gooseberry nuances. A base of American 2-row malt and scatterings of light British caramel malt create the perfect foundation for this unique and powerfully pungent IPA. You asked for it and we were happy to deliver!"
(Available in Little Italy, North Park, & Liberty Station) (On it’s way to Solana! Watch @bottlecraftsolanabeach )
TART TUESDAY!
Fresh off it's GABF Bronze Medal win...
🏖💀🏆🌶
Beachwood Blendery Dia De Los Mangos
"Belgian-style sour ale fermented and aged in oak barrels with Mango, Tamarind and Chili. Inspired by the unique flavors of Mexican candy, Dia de Los Mangos is a blend of one year old barrels aged on mango and tamarind for 8 weeks and infused with Ancho, Aleppo, Aji Amarillo, Guajillo, and Green Serano chili. Aromatics of chili dominate while mango and funk ethereally float through your olfactory. Tropical fruit flavors follow backed by a solid lactic acidity, finishing spicy while staying pleasantly drinkable. A unique beer to say the least. 7% ABV"
(Available in North Park & Little Italy)
BACK IN FROM OSKAR BLUES!
Ten FIDY Imperial Stout
"Darker than Dark. This titanic, immensely viscous stout is loaded with inimitable flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee and hide a hefty 65 IBUs underneath the smooth blanket of malt. Ten FIDY is made with enormous amounts of two-row malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, flaked oats and hops. Ten FIDY is the ultimate celebration of dark malts and boundary-stretching beer. 10.5% ABV" (North Park & Little Italy)
💀🌴
Death by Coconut
"Intense pure liquid cacao flavors swirl with popping coconut aromas, all supported by a semi-sweet porter made from loads of our dark chocolate and extra dark caramel malt. This limited release specialty comes around once a year to satisfy that sweet tooth, so get ’em while you can before they disappear. At 6.5% ABV and 25 IBUs, this choconut goodness will have you yellin’ “Pass. Dash. Hit.” all winter long."

Picture If You Will…
“Our tribute to the sweet, dark magic of bourbon barrels and the caramelly, burnt-sugar spell they've cast over our seasonal pumpkin-pie inspired ale.
This bewitching brew began with over 200lbs of fresh pumpkin and was finished with clove, allspice, nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon after spending seven months in Four Roses and Heaven Hill bourbon barrels. Poured from the bottle, the beer emulates a slice of pumpkin pie from the graham-cracker-crust malt backbone to the silky, whipped-cream mouthfeel. It drinks deceptively lighter than its 11.9% ABV”
(Liberty Station, Little Italy, & North Park)
🍂
The Spice Must Flow
“Level II variant built upon the seasonal pumpkin-spice base of Picture If You Will (pumpkin-pie inspired ale), aged in bourbon and rum barrels. An ode to one of the most beautifully basic joys of Autumn; the Pumpkin Spice Latte. Awaken the dormant parts of the mind with this melange of seasonal flavor finished with heaping masses of vanilla bean and chocolatey Salvadorian Coldbot Coffee beans, capable of folding the very fabric of space and time.”

🐝
PEANUT BUTTER JELLY CRIME
Peanut Butter Jelly Mead Made with Peanuts and Blueberry Juice. "We did it. We put a peanut butter jelly sandwich in a bottle. Some would say that this is a crime against all that is decent in the world of craft beverages, but this Peanut Butter Jelly Crime has yet to receive judgement from you, a distinguished member of the jury. So carefully examine all of the evidence provided by the prosecution, and consider the alibi of the defense, as you decipher the multifaceted complexity of the case. As you enjoy PBJC, don't forget the toast!" 13% ABV

MARION
Blackberry, Blueberry and Raspberry Mead. "An homage to one of the most classic characters in mead history, Marion is named for Maid Marion, the legendary love interest of Robin Hood. Marion is one of our all time favorites at Superstition. It has won multiple awards over the years, including a Gold Medal at the Mazer Cup International in 2016." 13.5% ABV

STRAWBERRY SUNRISE
Strawberry Mead Aged on Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Beans. "This semi-sweet mead is an ultimate expression of strawberries, honey and vanilla." 13% ABV

BLUEBERRY SPACESHIP BOX
"Top rated cider in the World! Blueberry Spaceship Box is our newest hard cider. WA apples, AZ honey and OR blueberries aged in French Oak!" 6.4% ABV
Alvarado in the House!
Available now at ALL STORES
**Limits Apply!**

RIOT PUNCH
New age double IPA that's heavily impacted by the bright peach & stonefruit notes imparted by a blend of yeast strains. Simple dry hop consisting mostly of Citra and a small portion of Azacca, resulting in a citrusy/tropical mélange of hop aroma and flavor; passion fruit, tangerine, pineapple, white wine-esque grape character. Alcohol is subdued, mouthfeel is full and soft, light bitterness. 8.5% ABV

SUPER RAD!
Our wort is soured with five strains of natural, probiotic bacteria that produce pleasantly tart levels of lactic acid. Once the baseline sourness is established, we take the wort through a normal fermentation just like any other beer, and condition this particular one on pineapple puree and dry hop it with Mosaic. 5%

DUANE'S WORLD
***MOSAIC WET HOP EDITION***
Named after Duane, the owner of Bottom's Up Homebrew Supply in Seaside, this West Coast style IPA is massively dry hopped with New Zealand Nelson Sauvin, and Mosaic wet hops, lending huge aromas and flavors of lychee, gooseberry, and mango, with an underlying earthy, diesel dankness! Party time, excellent! 7% ABV

VENGEFUL BARBARIAN
Bright, peach heavy tones from an East Coast yeast strain fermentation and a dry hop that includes a bunch of our favorites. The result is a hop aroma and flavor chock full of ripe, juicy grapefruit and apricot jam. On the back end, we've loaded up with beer with lots of oats, so it has a soft, creamy texture to support mild hop bitterness. 7.2% ABV
HAPPY FRIDAY THE 13TH!
Join us from 6-8pm TONIGHT in Solana Beach & TOMORROW from 6-8pm in Little Italy, where the owners of Superstition Meadery will be pulling corks and pouring samples of their award winning mead!

Karl Strauss Peanut Butter Cup Porter
"Karl Strauss and San Diego go together like peanut butter and chocolate. That's why we chose San Diego Beer Week back in 2012 as the perfect place to debut our Peanut Butter Cup Porter. This decadent twist on a robust porter packs rich layers of smooth peanut butter and dark chocolate flavors. Now back by popular demand, San Diego's original peanut butter beer makes a special appearance every fall. It turns out you really can have your dessert...and drink it too. 5.6% ABV"
(Available in North Park, Liberty Station & Little Italy)
Thursday Funk!
JESTER KING / THE BRUERY BOUFFON
"Sour Wit Ale brewed with Spices and aged in an oak Foeder. This tart, witty release kicks off our Foeders with Friends collaboration series. Our good friends at Jester King came to town to brew a sour wit ale with spices to christen one of our new-to- us foeders at Bruery Terreux. We designed a recipe with bitter orange peel and coriander and set it to ferment and age with our mixed house culture and Bavarian wit yeast in the designated foeder for four months. Using the Jester King house culture for bottle conditioning, Bouffon features some of the classic notes you’d look for in a wit, including banana, pear, vanilla, bubblegum, white pepper, lemon and a signature yeast profile. It also shines with the wild character from its cultures and collaborators at Jester King and Bruery Terreux. 5.3% ABV”
(Liberty Station, North Park, & Little Italy)

PHANTOM CARRIAGE MIDNIGHT HOUR
"A mixed fermentation Saison blended with a young lambic in freshly dumped Niner Winery merlot barrels. Refermented on black currants. Oaky. Funky. Fruity. 6.2% ABV"
(Little Italy & North Park)
Greetings from Port Brewing!
NELSON THE GREETER
"An IPA that celebrates the mayor of the 'clothing optional' Black Beach in Torrey Pines San Diego county. This beer also celebrates Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand. 6% ABV"
(Liberty Station, North Park, & Little Italy)
NORTH PARK TAP ALERT 🚨
Burgeon - Evergreen Dream:
“West Coast IPA hopped with Simcoe, Cascade, Chinook & New Zealand Cascade. Fruit forward IPA characteristics, clean body with some earthiness from the Chinook. The New Zealand terroir transforms the flavor of the Cascade from grapefruit into softer melon/pear. 7.2% ABV”
New Almanac in the House!
FARMER’S RESERVE BLACKBERRY
“We love blackberries. Tart, sweet, and complex but guarded by thorny branches, these alluring fruit have been a favorite of ours since we added them to our very first beer. This sour blonde ale is infused with loads of coastal Blackberries from California’s Santa Cruz Mountains and aged in wine barrels to mature with our house culture of brett, lacto and magic. The blackberries ferment away leaving behind a brilliant purple color and complex mineralogy, reminiscent of old-world French red wine. 6.9% ABV”
(Liberty Station, Little Italy, & North Park)
SPLENDID POPULATION
Splendid Population is our ode to the trailblazing spirit of the Golden State. The term was coined by Mark Twain in the late 1800s while traveling through California. Twain viewed the pioneers’ bold endeavors as, “magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness.” We created this adventurous beer-wine hybrid in that same intrepid spirit. Splendid Population is blended from select barrels of imperial sour blonde ale aged with muscat grapes, nectarines, peaches, and vanilla beans. Part wine, part beer and part autumn harvest—this brew is 100% California. 8.8% ABV”
(Available at all stores)

VINTAGE BEER ALERT!
2015 Stone Xocoveza Extra Anejo:
(North Park only)
“The base beer is the recipe of 2014 Stone Homebrew Competition winner Chris Banker, an intensely flavorful milk stout brewed with coffee and spices to mimic the rich flavors of Mexican hot chocolate.

SPECIAL INGREDIENTS
Lactose, Flaked Oats, Coffee, Vanilla, Pasilla Peppers, Nutmeg, Cinnamon & Cocoa

AGED
3 months in French Oak Extra Añejo Tequila Barrels that previously held Bordeaux Wine

CELLAR NOTES
We were so smitten with the initial batch aged in extra añejo barrels that we brought in more barrels and brewed more beer specifically to fill them. The barrels smelled amazing, with aromas of vanilla crème brulée, dulce de leche and tequila. The result is both satisfyingly expected and surprising at the same time: Sweet caramel-like flavors and black pepper, vanilla and tequila notes meld seamlessly with the spice, roasted coffee and chocolate flavors of the base beer for a richly intense experience.”
NEW BOTTLE POUR!
Our 6th Anniversary beer with The Bruery is available in 4oz & 8oz pours at our Little Italy & North Park stores.
GEBURTSTAGSKRANZ
"It’s a surprise. Close your eyes, make a wish, take a sip. Now open and behold this bottle crafted to celebrate our friend’s sixth birthday. Inspired by the flavors found in black forest cake, this recipe called for a rich imperial stout, with notes of chocolate, barrel-aged character, sweet vanilla and tart, juicy cherries. We couldn’t be happier to craft this bottle to help our friends celebrate. Cheers to them (and you!) 9.5% ABV"
