ALBATROSS DRAFT BEERS

Anchor Steam
(San Francisco, CA) Anchor Steam Beer owes its deep amber color, thick, creamy head, and rich, distinctive flavor to a brewing process like none other. It is a process that combines deep respect for brewing tradition with many decades of evolution to arrive at a unique approach: a blend of pale and caramel malts, fermentation with lager yeast at warmer ale temperatures in shallow open-air fermenters, and gentle carbonation in our cellars through our special all-natural process. 5% ABV.

Anderson Valley Boont Amber
(Boonville, CA) From deep in the Anderson Valley comes the world-famous, award-winning, crowd-pleasing Boont Amber Ale.

Lost Coast Downtown Brown
(Eureka, CA) A smooth, full-bodied nut brown ale, lightly hopped with a hint of roasted and crystal malts. This ale is dark in color without the heavy taste of porter or stout. Downtown Brown delivers across the board. A smooth, nutty, malty sweetness dominates with nice carbonation, crisp but not lingering, which gives it a really palatable mouthfeel. In the second half of a sip you can taste a little bright hop bitterness, which then fades, leaving you again with that excellent nutty malt flavor. You then sit back and realize it’s delightfully light (ABV of a mere 5.0%). Gold Medal Winner at the San Diego International Beer Festival & Competition and many other awards!    b a c k
 

 
Sierra Nevada
Pale Ale
(Chico, CA) Sierra Nevada Brewing is a legend of the microbrewing industry. It was at the forefront of the microbrewing revolution that took place in the early 1980's that sought to give beer drinkers a quality alternative to the light American lagers that dominated the market. Sierra Nevada's most popular beer is their Pale Ale, a delightful interpretation of a classic style. It has a deep amber color and an exceptionally full-bodied, complex character. Generous quantities of premium Cascade hops give the Pale Ale its fragrant bouquet and spicy flavor. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is the flagship beer, the one that made Chico famous. It is a flawless beer that opens with bright, perky high notes of maltiness and orange blossom and segues into a delectable hoppiness. 5.6% ABV.    b a c k

Bass Ale
(England) Bass Ale is the most famous English ale in the world. It is a full flavored ale, with a complex, nutty, malty taste and subtle hop undertones. Bass has an accessible, yet distinctive taste; malty and mildly hoppy. In 1777, William Bass had the courage to acquire his own brewery in Burton-on-Trent, England, and brewed his first pint of ale. We may not consider the familiar amber color of Bass to be ''Pale'' but in the 1700's most beers were near-black porters and stouts. Bass was the world's fist ''Pale Ale.'' 5% ABV.

Murphy’s Irish Stout
(Ireland) Murphy's Irish Stout is near black with a thick, creamy tan head. The aroma offers some bread and chocolates, gentle but enticing, smooth and creamy, with a milk chocolate character, a hint of roast and no bitterness. The flavor is evocative of caramel and malt, and is described as "a distant relative of chocolate milk". The resemblance to milk extends beyond flavour to texture: Murphy's is almost free of carbonation, and is delivered black as strong cappuccino with an inch of foam. A really solid example of the Irish Stout style. 4% ABV.    b a c k
 

 
Guinness Stout
(Ireland) This is the beer that started it all. Crafted to perfection for over 200 years, Guinness is descended from the definitive West India Porter known as Extra Superior Porter.
