The Dugout kicks off our Summer Series with a bang! In addition to live music, Firestone Walker will be bringing some of their most specials brews to tap for our customers. The tap takeover starts around 5pm, but there's a good chance the these beers might be pouring just a bit earlier.

Standard Deviance will start rocking the house with classic and modern rock influenced originals and covers starting at 7:30! Get here early for 1pm cornhole!

2015 Helldorado
An Imperial Blonde Ale or Blonde Barley Wine; Helldorado has the lightest color of any of the beers in our barrel program but carries a great deal of interesting barrel character:  vanilla, light char and amazing lavender-honey notes.  Rich boozy honey liqueur character and loads of smooth sweet toasted malt to finish.  The El Dorado hops dance in the background without playing a dominant role in the flavor profile.  This beer gets better and better the longer it is in barrel. Blonde Barley Wine. ABV: 12%. Extremely limited.

2015 Stickee Monkee
A Belgian Quad by recipe, but aging it in spirits barrels garners its own category: Central Coast Quad.  A beer formulated to sit on the sweeter and malty side so that we could utilize it for blending.  Turbinado brown sugar from Mexico and Belgian candi sugar add wonderful molasses flavors.  It has a full body and lush texture with barrel expression all over this beer:  toasted oak, coconut, leather and cigar tobacco. Central Coast Quad. ABV: 12%

Bretta Weiss
Imagine yourself in Berlin’s Tiergarten enjoying this refreshing Berliner Weisse inspired beer on a warm summer’s day. Bretta Weisse honors the traditional beverage of the great Prussian capital, Berlin. Fredrick-the-Great was trained to brew it, and Napoleon’s troops called it “The champagne of the North”. Firm estery notes of stone and tropical fruit lead to Funky, yeasty, citrus aromas.  Soft cereal and Oak flavors are enveloped by a firm acidity and tartness. The finish is dry and crisp; a thoroughly enjoyable beverage.  At  4.9% ABV, one could imagine enjoying several Bretta Weisse’s in the Tiergarten, or anywhere else.  This Berliner Weisse inspired Wheat beer was aged in 1700 gal French Oak horizontal foeders for 8 months. Berliner Weiss Inspired Wheat Beer. ABV: 4.9%. Extremely limited.

Wookey Jack
A unique twist on the Cascadian Dark Ale style.  Wookey Jack offers true hop aroma to rival most IPAs, with pungent citrus and herbal hop nuances, a hint of peppery rye and earthiness on the nose.  Big roasty malt flavors with balanced hop bitterness and spicy rye offer a full and complex texture with a refined bittered finish.  A truly different IPA for dark beer fans. Black Rye IPA. ABV: 8.3%. GABF Gold Medal Winner.
