November Newsletter

Fall is here and with it comes an amazing month full of fun events and new menu items. Most notably, Porters For Pups kicks off this week, our month long fundraiser supporting Ventura County Animal Services! We also are now serving Crowlers, the disposable 32 oz. can that we fill just like a traditional growler!


PORTERS FOR PUPS RETURNS THIS MONTH!

All November long, we'll be raising funds for our local animal shelter with our annual Porters For Pups fundraiser. During the entire month, proceeds from our Fall seasonal, Ratched Rye Porter, will be going to Ventura County Animal Services. Participating is easy! All you need to do is order tasters, pints or growlers of Ratched Rye Porter and we'll donate the proceeds to VCAS. Starting this weekend, we'll also be selling Porters For Pups glassware and t-shirts. Drink great beer for a great cause all November long! Visit Ventura County Animal Services' website at vcas.us to check out all the great work they do for our community!


NOVEMBER PIZZA - FALL VEGGIE

Our new Fall Veggie pizza is here! This unique pie is made with a roasted butternut squash puree, kale, goat cheese, roasted onions, rosemary, sage and bacon. It's autumn in pizza-form and absolutely delicious. And of course, it pairs great with our fall seasonal beer, Ratched Rye Porter. This pizza is only here for November, so grab it while you can.


ART SHOW PRESENTED BY GAMUT, NOVEMBER 16TH - BENEFITING VCAS!

In addition to our month-long Porters For Pups fundraiser, we'll also be raising money for VCAS during our first ever art show on November 16th! Come hang out with us and see some amazing art - we'll have work on display from a handful of local artists and live music. More details to come, check out our Facebook and Instagram for more info!


UPCOMING BEERS

These beers will be getting tapped in the tasting room soon. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter for exact release dates!

CITRA (PROGRESS PALE SERIES) - TODAY!
One of our favorite Progress variations returns today! Citra hops explode with citrus and tropical fruit aromas. 

NITRO BLUEBERRY RATCHED (RYE PORTER)
Our fall seasonal with blueberries will be hitting the nitro taps early this month. 

VIRTUE (DOUBLE IPA)
Our Mosaic and Amarillo hopped double IPA will be returning next week! Be on the lookout for this super fruity and bitter DIPA!

THE FLUE (HABANERO SMOKED PORTER) 
The weather is getting colder, which means we're brewing up our limited release smoked porter, The Flue. This is a full-bodied porter with tons of smoke and habaneros added for spice. It's one of our favorites and only brewed once a year.

NITRO COFFEE SEDATION (SESSION RED W/ COFFEE)
Our session red ale is getting the coffee treatment and going on the nitro tap. Check this beer out when it debuts in a couple of weeks!

ATTRITION (DOUBLE IPA) 
Attrition is quickly becoming one of our favorite double IPAs, which means we're brewing it more. It's dank, piney and citrusy- everything we love in a good DIPA. Look for this beer towards the end of the month.

PUMPKIN RESTRAINT (MAPLE BROWN ALE) ON TAP NOW, WILL RETURN LATE NOVEMBER
Pumpkin Restraint tapped last night for Halloween and will be around for a couple of weeks. A 2nd and final batch for the year will be released around Thanksgiving.

Plus, be on the lookout for experimental small batch projects and casks!
