Tortured Souls. This ain't your grandma's hot chocolate! Though the rich, silky smooth flavors of bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, and cinnamon might bring you some familiar comforts, bold notes of spicy peppers kick things into high gear. Let that heat linger on your tongue after every sip. Hurts so good! Brewed with Guatemalan cacao nibs, Madagascar vanilla, Vietnamese cinnamon, and THREE types of chili peppers: Morita, Pasilla & Cascabel to achieve a subtle spice but mainly a rich and warm body. 12.5%
Perkatory. This imperial stout might just be enough to wash away your sins. We worked closely with Valiant Coffee Roasters to create a custom blend of coffee beans that balances perfectly with the bold flavors of maple syrup and vanilla in this beer. We use golden naked oats to achieve that creamy, silky mouthfeel we all crave. Rich, intense, and just plain decadent! Grim Reaper says, "It's like fancy breakfast in a bottle." 13.1%
Windfall. Thanks to an unlikely harvest of peaches, we created this tart, Brettanomyces-fermented beer. A trove of vibrant aromas include blood orange, peach, and ruby red grapefruit. Its sour flavor stores notes of subtle clove, orange, and the peaches that we age it on for five months. Think of this beer as a toast to pleasant surprises. 6.2%
Heart of Hearts. Brimming with bountiful tartness and raspberry richness, Heart of Hearts is a ruby-colored, foudre-aged sour beer rested for four months on fresh-plucked raspberries. 6.1%

Reptilian Shadow Government. We took our Deep State IPA a few layers deeper and packed in even more Citra & Amarillo hops to give off flaves of peach rings, crushed pineapple & some melon deliciousness. We’re not exactly sure what offices are like at the center of the earth, but we really hope they are as divine as this here beer. 8.6%
Modern Times, Green Futures. This transcendently refreshing hazy IPA started with a base of pilsner malt and some flaked & malted oats. Then, we hopped the bejeezus out of it with Nelson, Strata, Centennial, & Simcoe hops, yielding a ridiculously tasty straw-colored beverage with notes of pineapple, candied berries, and a touch of honeydew. We’d be pretty shocked if you didn’t dig it. 6.8%
Without End. As a species, we must always strive for more, we must push through into the void, bravely facing adversity on our travels.

Ruse, Identical Truths. This hazy DIPA was brewed with Strata...only Strata. This super soft concoction smells like Edward Scissor Hands is juggling Valencia oranges in a field of dank strawberries. 8%
Bop n' Rock. A classic West Coast style pale ale for a classic duo. Crisp and clean in flavor, the addition of Cascade and Centennial hops provide a hint of piney bitterness that erodes into a smooth, citrus-forward flavor. These two hops are best friends that work together in tandem to create a profile that was once rebellious but has become a staple in the brewing culture. 5.5%
Brother Andrew. Our favorite can release is back! A namesake libation for the Abbot of Laughing Monk Brewing. Dry-hopped with Mosaic and Strata, this combination has a playful and vibrant terroir profile that brings in delicate earthiness, savory spice, and a hint of the tropics. As these distinct flavors blend together the resulting experiences is a fabulous representation of West Coast landscapes. If you put your ear to the glass you may just hear the ocean. 6.5%

Fluffy Puppy. Dark brown in color, with an off-white head. Notes of roasted malt on the nose with a hint of sweetness, clean and light in body. A refreshing and easy drinking English-style porter. You just might find yourself begging for more! 6.8%
Hop Heroes Volume 5. Our Hop Heroes have fallen into a trap! Citra Incognito and Kolschi have been deceived by the traitor Topaz leading them straight into a showdown with Ultra Mega Pineapple! A very heavy dose - double the amount of fruit used in Volumes 1 & 3 - of pineapple hits this brew hard with ripe and juicy pineapple flavor and aroma. Combined with Citra Incognito and lactose in the whirlpool and a small but noticeable DDH with Topaz, this brew has a silky smooth, sweet-tart body with tropical notes that help to complement the intense pineapple character. 8%
HenHouse, Short Range Delorean. In the first "Back To The Future" film, Doc Brown's DeLorean carries Marty McFly back in time 30 years from 1985 to 1955. We learn in the sequel that the car has the potential to travel even further than that. Our vessel is much more limited. Last February we rode it back to the early '00s to brew "Instant Classic." This week we release the results of a slightly longer journey back into the 1990s to resurrect the recently endangered, Classic American Pale Ale. Neutral ferment, caramel malt character. Cascade hop flavor and believe or not, actual bitterness. Take a ride with us. Incredibly pumped on these 90s flavors, including orange peel, grapefruit, geranium, and lavender! Maximum crushability. This beer is made with our favorite Cascades and shines straight through the glass as an example of the brilliance of the west coast brewing tradition! 5.3%
Modern Times, Mythic Worlds. This is an impossibly tasty IPA positively stuffed with gobs of Galaxy, Motueka, Mosaic, and Experimental 06277 hops. Notes of peach and passionfruit over a backbone of ripe citrus. 7.5%

We just received three different Belgian-style saisons from Urban Roots Brewing & Smokehouse!
The Local Saison series is a love letter to our region in the form of beer. We’re lucky to live in an area that thrives with all resources needed to make these incredible beers. The malt comes to us from Admiral Maltings in Alameda, CA. The barley, wheat and rye were sourced from Esparto, CA and Woodland, CA. And the apricots in Joy of Apricots are from Whole Star Farms. Each of these beers was fermented with a mixed culture of our house Saison blend and house brettanomyces. They are all bottle conditioned and will continue to age and mature gracefully for several years so stock up!
This week's Alvarado Street Brewery & Grill is here!
Biggie's Crunchee Brunch. Imperial Sour Ale collaboration with Other Half. We combined elements of their Crunchee series with our Biggie’s Brunch series; the usual heavy dose of blueberry & vanilla, but conditioned with almonds, cinnamon, toasted coconut and maple syrup! 8%
