NEW OAKLAND GLOW BOHEMIAN PILSNER

ABV: 4.2% IBU: 22

Sometimes, simple quality tastes the best. The Glow is a tribute to ‘Golden Glow’, a popular early-century Bay Area Lager from Golden West Brewery in Oakland. We use floor-malted German Bohemian Pilsner malt with a steadying backdrop of Northern Brewer hops and a touch of Melanoiden malt, a malt used for a fuller moth feel and bisquity flavors. Melanoiden is often used in Dark and Red beers, but the handful we use imparts a visible glow to our simple pilsner.

MALT: Bohemian Pilsner, Melanoiden
HOPS: Northern Brewer
YEAST: Old California Lager

SOUNDBITE: A light-bodied, smoother lager with hints of honey and grain.

PAIRINGS: A very simple, refreshing, light beer. Light foods with nuanced flavors will not be overpowered by this pilsner.

CALIFORNIA COMMON LAGER

ABV: 5.5% IBU: 39

California Common Lagers were invented in the Bay Area in an era following the Gold Rush. German brewers cultivated a brewer’s yeast that ferments in the region’s moderate temperatures. Some breweries call this Steam beer. Linden Street’s Common Lager is a robust, golden, malt-forward yet sturdily-hopped lager. Four German malts give it a range of flavor combined into a smooth mouthfeel.

MALT: Pale, Munich, Vienna, Carahell
HOPS: Northern Brewer
YEAST: Old California Lager

SOUNDBITE: A robust golden lager with a balanced hop presence.

PAIRINGS: This robust golden beer is versatile, but could overpower light and nuanced flavors. Chicken, seafood, pork, and spicy food. Whiskey and tequila.

OL’ BRICK ESB

ABV: 4.5% IBU: 19

Bitters aren’t bitter! ‘Bitter’ is essentially the English word for ‘Beer.’ Our Extra Special Bitter is primarily a classic recipe: Maris Otter English Malt, a bit of hops, and English Ale yeast. We throw in a little terrified wheat for a hint of toast and better head retention. It’s a non-classic, classic English Ale. Our ESB is a light, bodied, malt-forward amber ale.

MALT: Maris Otter, Crystal, Wheat, Munich
HOPS: Northern Brewer
YEAST: English Ale

SOUNDBITE: A light-bodied amber ale with hints of toast and caramel.

PAIRINGS: A very versatile beer. While it will not match heavy foods, it can be a refreshing pairing. Anything caramelized or with a touch of natural sweetness. Charcuterie, chicken, and pork are perfect. All cheeses and nuts.

BURNING OAK BLACK LAGER

ABV: 5.2% IBU: 19

Dark can be light. Our Black Lager is essentially a light-bodied pale lager with just enough black malts to make it a black beer with roasted flavors. We leave a touch of sweetness and just enough hops to balance it all.

MALT: Pale, Carafa, Caramunich, Munich
HOPS: Northern Brewer
YEAST: Old California Lager

SOUNDBITE: A light-bodied black lager with roasted flavors and a hint of sweetness.

PAIRINGS: Beef, chicken, pork, or vegetables that are roasted or grilled. Anything charred. Whiskey or any other barrel-aged spirit.

HOP CANDI SESSION IPA

ABV: 4.5% IBU: 9 (yes 9, heavily dry-hopped)

Powerful hop aroma with malt sweetness coming in at only 9 IBU and 4.5% ABV. How? We toss just a handful of buttering hops in the boil, and then add copious amounts of Apollo and Summit hops during fermentation. Rye malt adds spice to the flavorful ale.

MALT: Bohemian Pilsner, Rye, Munich, Carahell, Carared
HOPS: Apollo, Summit
YEAST: English Ale

SOUNDBITE: A pale ale with hoppy flavors and aromas, a hint of spice, with minimal lingering bitterness.

PAIRINGS: Hoppy beers pair with everything spicy. Classic American, Southern, Cajun, Spicy Asian, German, and English foods. Gin and other herbal spirits and cocktails. Anything herbal or spicy.
