Happy Father’s Day aka dad-pranking time! We asked our employees to text their dads/moms/parent-figures this question: “hey dad, my lawnmower ran out of gas - it’s fine to use beer in a pinch, right? I think I read that online somewhere.” Here are some of our favorite responses, ranging from the simple yet effective, “NO” to a number of other suggestions, many backed up with some science (in true dad fashion). Try it with your dad/parent-figure and share their response in the comments! Thanks for the laugh, dads. We love you!

Beautiful things happen when the brewing community comes together. We were honored to be a part of Sierra Nevada's Resilience fundraiser and, with your help, we raised $10,000 for the Camp Fire Relief Fund. And we got this sweet tin tacker to boot.

Subtly sour and a little sweet, this ale is a refreshing take on a nearly extinct German style, gose. Watermelon is the highlight of this lightly-hopped treat and gives it a hint of satisfying juiciness. The soft mouthfeel and dry finish comes courtesy of the addition of sea salt, a traditional gose ingredient.

Score: 3.97
Founders most complex, most innovative, most feared and yet most revered ale produced. Massive in complexity the huge malt character balances the insane amount of alpha's used to create this monster. More IBU's than any brewery has documented, more than you would believe and dry-hopped for twenty-six days straight with a combination of 10 hop varieties. Dangerously drinkable and deliciously evil. We dare you to dance with the Devil.

Brewed with molasses and a focus on malts, then oak-aged. The result is a strong, rich delight that’s deceptively smooth and drinkable.
Dark Penance
Style: IPA - Imperial / Double Black
ABV: 8.9%
IBUs: 100
# Ratings: 73,996
Score: 3.85
A heavy malt foundation includes Crystal malt for sweetness and just enough Midnight Wheat malt to push the color to black. The bitterness is huge, but balanced by malt sweetness and alcohol burn. The hop flavors and aromas range from citrus to floral to pine thanks to a delicious blend of hand-selected Chinook and Centennial hops.
Pale Ale
Style: Pale Ale - American
ABV: 5.4%
IBUs: 35
# Ratings: 67,345
Score: 3.54
A testament to Cascade hops in a bottle, this medium-bodied pale ale has a refreshing citrus flavor and a distinctive floral hop aroma due to the aggressive addition of hops during fermentation. You'll notice a slight malty sweetness with a balanced hop finish. Perfect to enjoy anytime, anywhere.
Solid Gold

Score: 3.44
Our brewery was built on an attitude of no regrets. An attitude of taking risks to bring the best beer possible to our fellow renegades and rebels. Never brewing to style, but always brewing what we want to drink. Our take on a classic, Solid Gold is a drinkable premium lager brewed with the highest quality ingredients. Challenging what a lager can be? That’s something we won’t regret.

Score: 3.95
Each fall, our brewhouse looks more like a greenhouse as thousands of pounds of wet hop cones arrive within hours of being picked by some of our favorite local hop growers. Acting quickly, we then load up these wet hops into what will become Harvest Ale – an impossibly aromatic and bright IPA bursting with fresh pine, melon and citrus notes. Our ode to the beauty that is the wet, American hop.
