A Tall Tale…

As the story goes, Tall Guy Brewing has been a dream of mine since college.
I first became interested in beermaking as a microbiology student at Cal Poly, when I came across homebrewing in a textbook. I’d always been fascinated with microbes, and I liked drinking beer, but I’d never thought much about the production of it. I became intrigued. Growing up, my dad had brewed beer in our kitchen, so I collected his old equipment and started brewing myself, sharing my results with my appreciative dorm buddies.  Read More . . .

Freshly Brewed

Broderick’s irish red

Ruby Red in color with a blend of mild hops and sweet malt for a refreshingly balanced taste. Broderick’s Irish Red is brewed to be authentic with Irish malt and yeast. This ale is nitro-infused for a soft creamy finish.

5.1% ABV / 25 IBU

 St Patty’s Stout

A Dublin Dry Stout, brewed in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. If you are a fan of Irish Stout, you will love this nitro-infused offering which was brewed in traditional Irish style using Irish malts, flaked barley and roasted barley. A generous dose of UK hops gives this beer the requisite dry roasty finish. Slainte!

6.75% ABV / 55 IBU

Pat’s Pale Ale

An old-school, 1980’s-style Pale Ale. Brewed with Two-Row and Caramel Malt. Late-Hopped with Chinook.

5.3% ABV / 40 IBU

Munoz especial

A Mexican-style lager, this light-bodied, light-colored brew is typical of domestic examples on the market. Can be considered a Vienna lager as Brewmasters of central Europe brought their practices when they migrated to the New World in the 19th century & established breweries in Mexico. Cold-brewed, crisp & refreshing.

4.85 ABV / 18 IBU

She’s so kolsch

Like its ancestors in Cologne, Germany, She’s So Kolsch is crisp, refreshing, and perfectly balanced. The use of 100% German malts and hops makes this Kolsch authentic to the style. Cool fermentation with an ale yeast strain creates fruitiness, and a two-month lagering process rounds out the flavor. She’s So Kolsch is smooth and drinkable.  5% ABV / 25 IBU

Mixed Emotions IPL

IPL stands for India Pale Lager which is a modern hybrid of a light lager and an IPA. Mixed Emotions is light, crisp and dry like a Pils but with a citrus-forward hoppy finish like an IPA. As this is a light bodied beer, the hop character is also on the lighter side, perfectly in balance with the body of the beer. Mixed Emotions is refreshingly crisp and will satisfy your craving for hops.

5.25% ABV / 36 IBU.


A 90’s-era IPA. A big, amber ale at with a whopping dose of bitterness. Hopped five times in the kettle, exclusively with Centennial hops, and again with a heavy dose of Centennial dry-hops to the fermenter for a floral, spicy aromatic finish. You’ll find nothing tropical, citrusy or hazy about this throwback IPA.

8.25% ABV / 90 IBU

Under Assistant West Coast IPA

West Coast IPA is a subgroup of the traditional IPA. This style, made popular in San Diego, is bitter, bold and hoppy. There is no balance here, UAWC IPA is all about hops with only light-colored Two-Row malt included in the grist. Modern hopping techniques and citrus-forward hops create a beer that is very aromatic. You’ll get tropical fruit flavors, especially mango, from the abundance of hops used to make the beer.

7.5% ABV / 48 IBU.

Hazy Mama IPA

Hazy Mama is a modern Hazy IPA with heavy tropical and citrus aromas from heavy doses of late hops to the whirlpool and multiple doses of dry hops to the fermenter. The classic hazy hops, Citra and Mosaic, are joined by Roy Farms Azacca and Australia’s Galaxy hops. Raw Wheat and Rolled Oats in the grist contribute the haze in the glass and silky texture on the tongue.

6.3% ABV / 45 IBU


A hard seltzer which can be taken straight or with a shot of Torani-brand fruit syrup. Crisp, light and spritzy; a refreshing and delicious cocktail. Ask your beertender for syrup options.

5% ABV / 0 IBU
