Named after a local beginning surf beach just North of Ventura. Brewed in the style of an American Cream Ale, Mondo's is a refreshing lighter bodied ale, with a mild bready malt character and just a hint of corn to add a crisp finish and accent the subtle hop bitterness. Pairs well with salad or grilled chicken. Silver Medal winner at the 2012 LA County Fair Commercial Beer Competition.
Named after a surf spot bordering Ventura County & LA County. Brewed as an American Pale Ale with a twist, a healthy dose of rye adds a subtle spiciness and frothy white head while generous amounts of pleasantly spicy and floral American hops compliment the gentle rye character. Pairs well with a sloppy burger at the beach! Gold medal winner in 2012, Silver medal in 2013 and Bronze in 2015, at the LA International Commercial Beer Competition.
Just in time for the Holiday Season, we are excited to change things up with a Belgian style white IPA. Focused on delivering complexity with a blend of Belgian Yeast strains and traditional West Coast hopping. This will be the closest thing we Californians get to a white winter.
NEW RECIPE-NOW MORE DANK! In Ventura, good things come from the South in the Summer. In this case, in the form of our big Double India Pale Ale featuring Hops from Australia and New Zealand and Patagonia Caramel malt from Chile. Dry-hopping provides aroma to a dominant hop profile of citrus and gooseberries with just enough malt backbone to support the aggressive hopping.
Aerial IPA is a hop-forward American style India Pale Ale, named after an aggressive surfing maneuver. Starting off with a strong aroma of dank resins and citrus from generous dry-hopping, Aerial boasts similar flavors on the palette balanced against a restrained bready malt backbone, finishing with a lingering hoppiness that isn’t overly bitter. The light body keeps the beer refreshing and allows the hops to shine through without too much malt sweetness to negate the power of the aggressive hopping. Enjoy with crispy fish tacos with a simple cilantro and tomato salsa.
Hawaiian for Polynesian Princess or Surf Chick here in the States, our Wahine line of American Wheat beers, will use different Ventura County fruit seasonally throughout the year; lemon, strawberry or grapefruit. The fruit gives the beer a refreshing slight fruity flavor and aroma. Pairs well with fish tacos.
Brewed to celebrate the 25 year Anniversary of local Surfrider Foundation Chapter. This is what we call a California Saison. It has a light and dry body from the use of local Orange Blossom Honey. High in wheat percentage adds a nice mouth feel that we couple with the pleasant citrus/stone fruit characters of our hop addition. To add the final layer of complexity, the use of French Saison yeast makes this a one of a kind refreshing beer, suitable for an anniversary.
In 2016, in celebration of the 100 year Anniversary of our National Parks and our local National Park, Channel Islands, we brewed a special beer for the first time. This light bodied American Amber Ale is malty with notes of caramel. Pair with a light chicken taco or burrito at sunset while viewing Anacapa Island’s famed arch silhouette. Honorable mention at 2016 Los Angeles beer competition.
Not exactly indigenous to Ventura County, however we wanted something a little exotic for our fifth Surf Seasonal IPA. Real peaches and mangos were added to bring a special overall flavor in combination with our hop selection. It reminds us of a surf excursion to some far off destination. Hang loose bro and just enjoy!
We all have to start somewhere, right? Our American Kettle Sour Ale, is designed for those new to the sour beer world. We call it Foam Board, named after the surf board that a beginner would start with when first picking up the sport. We employed a unique Kettle-souring technique that allows us to create beers with the sharp characters traditionally found in aged Sour beers and back-sweetened with 100% tart cherry. You will find hints of Champagne, almond, and rich Cherry flavor throughout this wonderfully light and refreshing beer.
Named after a now extinct surf break between Santa Barbara and Ventura, Oil Piers™, Robust Porter on Nitro is back in the house! The original recipe that won us a Gold Ribbon at the 2013 California State Fair beer competition.
This American wheat versions uses Washington State apples for a great aroma and refreshing flavor.
Brewed as an American Brown Ale to provide a malty backbone, then kettle-soured a little longer than our tart series. Fresh raspberries were added in the fermentation stage to provide even more complexity. This is the next stage in reaching pucker nirvana.
