Summer is Here

summer is here

Summer is here and we are enjoying some seriously wonderful weather here on the Half Moon Bay coastside! We will be wrapping up the month of June with the can release of one of our favorite brews and a celebration of our favorite furry friends with the 2017 Dog Days of Summer benefit!

If you haven’t heard about the Word on the Street IPA, you’ve missed out! This pale IPA is brewed with Weyermann pilsner malts, giving it an enticing and unique “crackery” starch profile. Its approachable malt structure leads the drinker to a bitter hop-forward finish. This excellent hazy brew is dry-hopped with Citra, Denali, Ekuanot, and Simcoe hops.

We’re excited to introduce the extremely popular Word on the Street IPA in a can! It’s a great opportunity to take this favorite specialty IPA to-go or save a can or two for a rainy day. Celebrate with us at the Pacific Standard Taproom located at 2055 Center St, Berkeley, CA for our release party on Thursday, June 22nd! Keep an eye out for releases at stores throughout the Bay Area the week of June 19th.

The Honey Ale is on tap at our brewery and restaurant. Brewed with locally-sourced organic wildflower honey, this summer brew has a slightly sweet maltiness with citrus notes. It’s refreshing and pairs wonderfully with the great weather we’re experiencing and a sunset view on our patio!

Our new website features a live beer menu, so you can find out what’s on tap at the moment at both our brewery and at the Pacific Standard Taproom!

Many of our regular guests enjoy the outdoor patio at our restaurant because of its famously dog-friendly atmosphere. It’s a great place for friendly canines to mingle, dog owners to enjoy an outing with their favorite companions, and for dog-loving humans to get their puppy fix.

We love and appreciate our four-pawed visitors so much that we celebrate them every year with our Dog Days of Summer benefit event. It’s a great way to enjoy the Mavericks Beer Garden with your pooch and support the Peninsula Humane Society! Dog Days 2017 will be held June 25th from 12 – 3pm.

Looking ahead, the brewers are whipping up another batch of the Simconed single-hop IPA. This tasty brew explores the depths of Simcoe hops by incorporating this single strain in four forms. Dry hopped with traditional hops pellets, whole cone hops, CO2 extract, and lupulin powder extracted from Simcoe flowers, the Simconed IPA brings out the best of this versatile hop with a full, well-rounded hops flavor. Also coming up is the En Passant Saison: dry hopped with Mandarina Bavaria hops and whole-cone Huell Melon hops.

We are welcoming the summer, late sunsets, and awesome weather with some refreshing summer brews and a set of great IPAs. Come join us on our sunny patio at our brewery and restaurant at 390 Capistrano Road, Half Moon Bay, CA. If you’d like to try some of these creations on tap but can’t make it out to our brewery, check out the Pacific Standard Taproom in Berkeley. And, as always, you can find our brews at Safeway, Whole Foods, and other stores throughout the Bay Area!

Cheers and thanks for reading!
