We thank our hops every day that the English loved their bittersâ€”or else the IPA style may not have been born to help the beer survive the journey from Cape Hope to India back in the 18th century.
Selected as a benchmark for the Beer Judge Certification Program used in all American based beer judging. Centennial IPA has quickly become the IPA of choice. Pour yourself a pint of this complex flavorful ale and bask in the frothy head's floral bouquet. Relish the immense citrus accents, achieved by the abundance of dry hopping.

Admin Note - This beer was previously known as "Heyoka" and "Senita" but has been changed by the brewery to this current name. All ratings will be housed under this listing.
Resurrected has been reincarnated as Incarnation India Pale Ale! Due to expanding to different markets we had to change the name of our mosaic hopped IPA formerly known as Resurrected.

IPA with Mandarina hops.

Itâ€™s been said; "Itâ€™s easier to brew an extremely hoppy beer than an extremely balanced beer." And you know us, we are always looking for the easy way out, so we jumped on the West Coast IPA bandwagon and brewed this dry and hoppy ale. "Surlyâ€™s a little bit of a one-trick pony, they just brew gimmick beers," and maybe we are OVERRATED, but at the end of the day, itâ€™s just a beer. If you like it, great, so do we. If you only liked us when we were small, then leave this one on the shelf. Let one of the fanboys grab it.
The Sculpin IPA is a testament to our humble beginnings as Home Brew Mart. Founded in 1992, the Mart continues to be a catalyst for the San Diego brewing scene, setting the trend for handcrafted ales. Inspired by our customers, employees and brewers, the Sculpin IPA is bright with aromas of apricot, peach, mango and lemon. Its lighter body also brings out the crispness of the hops. This delicious Ballast Point Ale took a Bronze Medal at the 2007 Great American Beer Festival in the Pro Am category. The Sculpin fish has poisonous spikes on its fins that can give a strong sting. Ironically, the meat from a Sculpin is considered some of the most tasty. Something that has a sting but tastes great, sounds like a Ballast Point India Pale Ale.
While our beers are many and diverse, yet unified by overarching boldness, India pale ales are our undeniable bread and butter. Weâ€™ve brewed many over the past 18 years, from double-down bitter bombs to piney session sippers. Whether itâ€™s big IBUs or a precise ABV, thereâ€™s usually a target weâ€™re shooting for. The same is true of this, our latest IPA, but we gave zero thought to any acronyms. This one was all about packing as much unique and, you guessed it, delicious flavor into a glass as humanly possible, regardless of oomph or octane. This intensely citrusy, beautifully bitter beer is worthy of the simple-yet-lordly title of Stone Delicious IPA. Lemondrop and El Dorado hops combine to bring on a magnificent lemon candy-like flavor thatâ€™s balanced by hop spice. Itâ€™s unlike anything weâ€™ve tasted in nearly two decades of IPA experimentation, and another lupulin-laced creation weâ€™re excited to introduce to hopheads everywhere.

This is Tribesâ€™ Christmas beer! As we all probably donâ€™t know, Mokena is â€œHome of the Mud Turtleâ€ â€¦ We cannot make that stuff up.

The dark, roasted malt gives it a nice coffee flavor with hints of bitter chocolate. Perfect for the holiday season. Merry Christmas!

This beer was previously know as Gordon.
Gordon is a hybrid version of strong ale, somewhere between an Imperial Red and a Double IPA. We make it with six different malts and three types of hops, then dry-hop it with a mutha lode of Amarillo hops.
It features a gooey, resiny aroma and a luscious mouthfeel. Gordon is brewed with dash of chocolate malt in it, to round out its load of hops and balance the beer. The result is an assertive yet exceptionally smooth version of strong beer.
We brew Gordon in tribute to the late Gordon Knight. In addition to opening some of Colorado's first microbreweries, Knight was a Vietnam vet, grade-A citizen, and huge promoter of craft beer. He lost his life in 2002 while fighting a wild fire outside of Lyons, Colorado.
Originally our winter seasonal beer, it has become a cult favorite of extreme-beer lovers, so we now brew occasional batches of Gordon throughout the year. Released in bottles in 2003 and 2004, Gordon is now sold in four packs of hand-labeled cans and on draft in select markets.

A generous malt bill and a solid dollop of honey provide just enough body to keep the balance in check, resulting in a remarkably drinkable rendition of the Double India Pale Ale style.

Otra Vez means â€œanother time,â€ and for Sierra Nevada that time is early California when beers were made from local ingredients. The brewery trialed various native produce searching for great flavors. Prickly pear cactus flourishes in the stateâ€™s arid deserts, and grapefruit fills the Central Valleyâ€™s flats. Together their fruity-tangy blend makes Otra Vez, whose tartness is true to the gose style, pop with character.
With roots in two of todayâ€™s most popular brewing styles, 80-Acre Hoppy Wheat Beer is the result of careful cultivation by our brewers and cellarmen.

A striking, robust porter full of warmth and chocolate malt. Eugene is a robust porter named after Eugene V. Debs, an American union leader and activist who led the Pullman Railroad strike in 1894.

Dark red, not clear enough to to see through. Wonderful nose of pomegranate and honey. There is a nice warming the whole way down. Plenty of honey up front and in the finish. The pomegranate plays a nice role and is not the star but is a nice counter to the sweet.
