Happy National IPA Day! Come celebrate the first day of August with a pint of Institution IPA. As the summer fun continues this month we're going to be tapping/canning a few brand new beers and having some of our favorite classic beers return to the bar. We’ve got the Elote pizza making a return this month as our August specialty pizza! We'll also be participating in a few beer festivals and other can’t-miss events in the month of August. Keep an eye on our Upcoming Events page for more details.


August Specialty Pizza

Our specialty pizza for the month of August is a classic Mexican street corn inspired pie, the Elote Pizza. This pizza has a garlic sriracha aioli base, roasted corn, mozzarella, queso fresco, red onions and jalapeno. It’s then garnished with chile powder, cilantro and a lemon wedge. Come try a lunch-sized version available Monday- Friday until 2pm with a pint of your favorite IAC beer; this is available at both locations!

Upcoming Beers

 
 

These beers will be getting tapped in the tasting room soon.  Check out our beer release calendar (above), and follow us on social media for the exact release dates!

Raspberry Day Dreamin’  (Golden Ale w/ Fruit) - 4.7%
Raspberry Day Dreamin’ is part of our Day Dreamin’ series of fruited golden ales. This beer is light and easy to drink, with tart berry flavors and mild sweetness.

On Pins and Needles (Session IPA) - 4.8%
On Pins & Needles delivers all the hop aroma and flavor you love in our IPAs but with a lower Abv.  This session IPA uses one of our favorite hop combinations, Simcoe and Mosaic, along with specialty malts for a balanced malt character.

Whispers To Screams (Oatmeal Stout) - 5.4%
As much as we love brewing with adjuncts, especially in our dark beers, we decided to make Whispers To Screams as traditional as possible. This Oatmeal Stout uses Maris Otter, Pale, Oats and dark malts to create a silky smooth, balanced stout.

Coherence (California Pale Ale) - 5.5%
Coherence is a heavily hopped pale ale, brewed and dry hopped with our favorite fruity hops - Citra, Simcoe, Amarillo and Mosaic. Big hop aroma, medium bitterness and a lighter body make this one of our favorite, most refreshing beers.

Brexit Brown (English-Style Brown Ale, Pro-Am Winner) - 6.2%
Brexit Brown is the winning homebrew recipe from the Thousand Oaked Homebrewers Romancing The Beer competition. We are releasing this beer and specialty glassware on August 2nd at 4pm. Come hang with us during our beer release party!

Batch 500 (India Pale Ale) - 6.4%
To commemorate our 500th batch we brewed a classic IPA with Simcoe, Cascade and Columbus hops. It doesn’t get more traditional than this when talking about West Coast IPAs - big flavors and aromas of grapefruit and pine with a clean firm bitterness!

Dissonance (Golden Stout) - 6.5%
Our Golden Stout, a blonde ale aged on vanilla beans, cacao nibs & Beacon coffee. This deceptively light-colored beer is full of dark beer flavors - milk chocolate, sweet vanilla, a nutty malt backbone and roasty coffee.

Double Dry Hopped Spicy IPA (Double Dry Hopped IPA w/ Peppers) - 7.5%
A special small batch of Institution IPA with a little extra dry hop for added aroma and peppers for a kick!

Scale The Walls (White IPA) - 7.6%
A ramped up version of our year-round white IPA, White Walls. Scale The Walls bumps up the ABV to 7.6% and adds a touch of Pilsner malt to lighten the body and keep the beer super refreshing. Scale The Walls is primarily Citra Hops with a touch of Mosaic for a citrusy and fruity hop profile.  

Disarray (Double IPA) - 10.1%
A big 10.1% Double IPA overloaded with dank and resinous hops - Columbus, Simcoe and Summit. Disarray is bitter with a sturdy malt backbone.
