Brewer's Notes: In collaboration with our local Bay Area friends at Fieldwork Brewing (who know a “little” about hops in beers) we bring you A Terrible Idea. Discover malt clouds supporting silky yeast with a creamy mouthfeel, then brace yourself for a MAMMOTH dry hop charge – 4 pounds of hops per barrel to be exact – which is twice our typical rate.
Was inventing a triangle wheel a terrible idea? Ok yes, maybe so. Was making this beer? Absolutely not. We stand behind the claim that the strong hop flavors and aromas, coupled with juicy notes of peach, orange, mango and pineapple will spark your taste buds back from extinction.

Brewer's Notes: Malted milk, chocolate and fresh-ground coffee bean aromas bring to mind the finest cup of authentic cubano espresso coffee while flavors of toffee, semi-sweet chocolate and a touch of roast on the palate are complimented by espresso and a touch of milk sugar.

Brewer's Notes: Named for its velvety smooth, creamy texture, this incredibly rich stout is brewed with 10 different specialty roasted malts chosen that impart notes of rich mocha and espresso. Dark and sweet tones intermingle with a soft, roasty finish.

Delicate, floral, grassy aromas and flavors of lemon verbena and basil, lemon pudding cake, fruit loops, and pickled melon with a silky, crisp, petillant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length candied violets, earl grey tea with cream, and minerals finish.
