Gunwhale Tap TakeoverCome check out one of Orange County's newest breweries as they make their San Diego debut with us on Monday, February 20th. Be the first in the city to try their brews and even keep the glass! Gunwhale specializes in "the European farmhouse tradition and the bold, West Coast styles that California made famous."
We'll be pouring:
Bait Ball – IPA
PASSIONFRUIT, GRAPEFRUIT, RESINOUS
A raw, unfiltered IPA, deep gold in color. Brewed with Pilsner, 2 Row, Oats and flaked barley. It is medium bodied and heavily hopped with over 2 lbs per barrel of Simcoe, Citra, and accented with Mosaic for hints of tropical and citrus flavor. Dry with assertive hop bitterness.
Barno – Rye Nelson Saison
BRIGHT, MUSTY, SPICY, GOOSEBERRY
A cloudy, unfiltered Oak-fermented 4-grain saison showcasing 100% Nelson hops. Pale straw in color, aromas of white grape must, tropical fruit, rye spice, and assertive citrus pith bitterness and dry. Medium bodied, lively carbonation with a thick mousse head, makes this a crushable hoppy farmhouse hybrid.
Majordomo – Citrus Farmhouse (Super Saison)
ZESTY, COMPLEX, FRUITY
A golden, medium bodied and high gravity farmhouse ale with complex Citrus flavor. We used a unique approach with the addition of over 100lbs of lemons, roasted, dried, pulverized and whirlpooled. With a low bitterness, this beer is balances its size with slight funk and a smooth head and mouthfeel.
Jig Strike – Hoppy Pale Ale
CITRUS, FLORAL, TOASTY MALTS
A classic Californian golden pale ale with a light to medium body and fined for clarity. Lightly toasted malts (addition of Maris Otter and Munich), balanced with floral and fruity hop character from a heavy Chinook, Centennial, and Cascade dry hop schedule. Mild hop bitterness, medium carbonation, this beer finishes refreshingly dry.
Shellmaker – Oyster Dry Stout
ROASTY, COFFEE, BRINE
A roasty, medium bodied black ale with sublte brine character from the addition to the boil of fresh oysters. This dry stout expresses notes of bitter chocolate, coffee grounds, and has a creamy mouthfeel and tan head from the use of flaked barley. Moderate carbonation, balanced bitterness and a dry smooth finish. Warning: shellfish allergy.
Trollin’ – Double IPA
TROPICAL, DANK, PIE CRUST
A slightly hazy, deep gold hop bomb. Medium bodied and juicy, this beer is packed with Nelson and Mosaic hops showing bursts of mango, citrus and white grape notes in both aroma and flavor. Assertive hop bitterness but dry and holds a good balance between hops and malt and shows backbone but no booze bite, making it an easy drinker for the style.
