Return of the Gorilla Taplist Revealed!


Saturday marks the highly anticipated return of Amarilla Gorilla IPA, our tropical fruit bomb of an IPA that masterfully balances an explosive hop aroma and complex hoppy richness throughout!! Expect some guava, papaya and strong mango in the aroma and flavors of tropical fruit, citrus and pine to round out the complex hop profile. This is an exceptional IPA. It’s the last weekend of LA Beer Week, so if you want to go out with a bang, we’ve got the event for you. Read on!

Join us for a stellar line up of experimental, barrel-aged and one-off Smog City beers. Tomorrow we launch two new beers: Mo Wheaty Wheat and Gottalottahop. Plus we’re bringing back the Anniversary Beer which has been cellaring for the last four months. It’s only getting better folks!

So, grab a kleenex and get ready to salivate as you read the line up coming at ya tomorrow!

Fresh Hops // Our Hops

Owning a brewery is a lot (A LOT) of hard work and a lot of fun, to be sure…so I’m sure you won’t blame us for looking for fun ways to stretch our creativity and test the limits. Whether it’s experimental beers, sour concoctions, repurposing materials in the brewery or growing our own ingredients, we’re there!

This past year we planted four sets of rhizomes: chinook, centennial, cascade and columbus in planters in the parking lot. Not only did it create a beautiful arbor but the vines are now yielding copious amounts of hop cones!

Here we are harvesting last week!

THIS WEEK: We’re tapping our first ever FRESH HOP Hoptonic IPA and tapping it in the brewery. Join us tonight for the tapping of California Love and Fresh Hop Hoptonic IPA. Delicious.

Let creativity reign!
