Say Aloha to Our Little Friends at Ballast Point

Spring keeps trying to sprung, and keeps failing. But our minds are on warmer weather and good times. Our friends at Ballast Point agree, and sent us a keg of their new Aloha Sculpin hazy IPA.

This yeast also adds a slight haze to the beer, creating a smooth mouthfeel to round out its juicy character. Simply put, this is paradise in the palm of your hands." - Ballast Point

We'll also be tapping some other fun kegs, including:

  • Moscow Mule Sour Ale brewed /w ginger & lime zest
  • Tart Peach Kolsch
