Lockdown: Featuring Rincon Brewery
Lockdowns only happen once a month and feature a special guest brewery and their favorite beers on tap at IAC. This month’s lockdown features our friends from Rincon Brewery. They'll be here on Wednesday, February 27th at 5pm to hang out and pour some of their favorite brews on tap at IAC. The event starts at 5pm but come by anytime until closing. Don’t miss out on this one night only event, and check back soon for more details!
Every Tuesday from 7pm-9pm we host a special Institution trivia night with the most talented quiz master around. Come test your random knowledge with friends, grab a pint and some pizza! Winners receive IAC gift cards.
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!
Blueberry Day Dreamin’ (Golden Ale w/ fruit) - 4.7%
Blueberry Day Dreamin’ is part of our Day Dreamin’ series of fruited golden ales. This beer is light and easy to drink, with a fruity sweetness that's not overpowering. This beer features blueberries!
Clarity (Dry Hopped Golden Ale) - 4.7%
Clarity returns to IAC! An easy-drinking golden ale generously dry hopped with Mosaic, Nugget and Warrior hops. Low bitterness and a clean finish make this one of our most approachable beers.
Batch 400 (Cryo Pale Ale) - 5.0%
For our 400th Batch at our Mission Oaks location, we brewed a refreshing Pale Ale with a heavy dose of Citra & Mosaic Cryo Hops. These hops are extremely fruit forward with flavors of citrus zest and blueberries.
Jalapeno State Street Pale (Pale Ale w/ peppers) - 5.8%
Our new pale ale, State St., with jalapenos! The peppers add the aroma and flavor of fresh cut jalapenos with minimal spiciness. This is a super small batch, so grab some while it’s around.
Light Up Your Torch (India Pale Ale) - 7.0%
Our newest IPA recipe, Light Up Your Torch, showcases Citra hops with a little bit of Cascade and Mosaic in the background. This IPA is super citrusy and juicy with medium bitterness. Be on the lookout for four packs as well!
Orchards To The Sky (Double IPA) - 8.3%
Three of our favorite hops are highlighted in this West Coast Double IPA. Mosaic, Citra and Simcoe combine for intense flavors of tropical fruit, lime and resinous pine. Orchards To The Sky is brewed with only base malt to let the hops dominate from the initial aroma to the final lingering bitterness.
The Surgeon (Triple IPA) - 10.6%
The Surgeon is our annually released Triple IPA, checking in at 10.6%, 80 IBUs and nearly 8 lbs of hops per barrel. This massive IPA is loaded with Mosaic, Simcoe, Columbus, Centennial and Amarillo hops. Enjoy this dank, fruity, and intense Triple IPA that only comes around once a year! Be on the look out for four packs in late February.
