We’ve made it a year!
And to help celebrate we have a few things going on that you should know about!
Seconds: A First Anniversary Beer
For our year one anniversary, we will be releasing our first anniversary beer, called Seconds.
This special beer is a blend of 5 barrels from 4 different recipes, ranging in age from 5-11 months. We blended these barrels into our packaging tank, then racked it back into clean barrels with 400 pounds of organic Blenheim Apricots from See Canyon Fruit ranch in San Luis Obispo. After a few weeks of ageing, we then racked the beer off the fruit and back into our packaging tank. We then transferred a portion of this blend back into a clean 400L puncheon with 100 pounds of organic Bonny Royal Apricots from Andy’s Orchard. This is probably my favorite farm, and these apricots were beautiful and delicious. Seconds was bottled in green 375ml bottles. It has an insane amount of fruit flavor and aroma, with intense floral notes reminiscent of fresh cut roses. Visit our other blog post to read more about this beer and our other apricot releases Le Con and Apricot Atavism.
Seconds will be released online through our website on the following dates:
Member Pre-Release – Tuesday, October 3rd. Limit 1 375ml/pp. Members will be able to purchase an additional 3 375ml/pp come the public release.
Public Release – Friday, October 6th. Limit 3 375ml/pp.
Our release is structured this way to ensure that all of our members have the opportunity to purchase Seconds before the public has access, but we also want to prioritize those that will make it to the Anniversary Party on the 14th.
Shipping & Pick Up for Seconds
Our pick-up and shipping policies are changing for this release alone.
Non-members will need to pick up their order of Seconds on October 14th during our open hours for our Anniversary Party, which you are invited to if you’ve purchased a bottle of Seconds (read more on Admission to the party below).
If you do not pick up your purchase of Seconds on October 14th, your order(s) will be forfeited without refund. THIS IS THE ONLY DATE TO PICK UP YOUR ORDER OF SECONDS.

Our standard shipping and pick up policies apply to all member purchases of Seconds. Orders will be held at the brewery through March of 2018, and shipping options are available within CA.
A First Anniversary Party
To celebrate making it through our first year, we will be opening the brewery doors on Saturday, October 14th!
There will be food, beer, pick-up of Seconds (and any other orders!), games, and good people!
Our doors will be open from 12p-8p, with food available from Burger Bar LA (Food Truck time TBD).
We plan to have tap and bottle pours available for purchase, with the following available to drink (subject to change):
* For member releases, pours will be available to everyone, but bottles to go will only be available to our members.
Buy a bottle of Seconds, and that is your “ticket” to get in to the brewery on October 14th. Every bottle counts as a ticket, so if you purchase 3 bottles, you have 3 tickets. Please include the names of your guests in the notes section at checkout. If there are no names submitted, any guests brought must accompany the person whose name is on the Seconds order upon entry.
A valid from of photo ID must be presented for every person at entry in order to be admitted and to pick up any orders.
