MORE INFO
The start of 818 Brewing can be traced back to three things -- the discovery of a new bar, our curiosity and our entrepreneurial spirit.

The time spent at a new, local bar was actually our crash course to the craft brew scene. Thanks to this crazy new bar in Winnetka, CA and our buddy the bartender, we were introduced to new styles of beer that were much different than the commercial brands we were used to. After many conversations on the process of making beer and the brewing techniques of smaller breweries, we decided to take a chance at brewing our own malted, adult beverages!

We signed up for a Maltose Falcons class, bought a brewing kit and a turkey fryer and made a batch of beer on June 23, 2012. After this first batch, we were hooked! We invested more time in learning about the process, fabricated custom brewing equipment and experimented with new recipes while tweaking them to make them our own.

After serving our homemade brews to our friends and getting such positive feedback, we knew we had something special. Given our Valley roots and the fact our beer was brewed out of a garage in Sylmar, CA, we decided 818 Brewing was the perfect name for our new venture.

What we've enjoyed the most along our journey is the sense of community within the craft brew scene. Not many products can bring together men and women of different nationalities, age groups, religious beliefs, income level, political views - and even fellow brewers! - and create a moment of common ground. 818 Brewing is proud to offer a product that brings us together to say cheers!

BEER LIST
Matador Red
Style: Red Ale - American Amber / Red
ABV: 5.8%
IBUs: 21
# Ratings: 569
Score: 3.75
Grab your next beer by the horns. The Amarillo and Centennial hops produce citrus and floral tones which balance out the seven styles of grain making up the malt bill. It's this profile that creates seductive caramel notes and a soft chocolate finish, sitting smoothly on your tongue. This balance and complexity make it a red ale to remember! Brewed four miles west of campus by Matador Alumni!
Valley Girl Blonde
Style: Blonde Ale
ABV: 5.6%
IBUs: 18
# Ratings: 485
Score: 3.61
*AWARDED SILVER MEDAL in the 2019 NEW YORK INTERNATIONAL BEER FESTIVAL* Born from a mixture of classic German Kolsch influence and fresh California flavor, the Valley Girl Blonde Ale is a throwback to the style we first started brewing in a Sylmar garage in 2012. It took countless rounds of trial-and-error to get her just right, but she wouldn't be a Valley Girl if she weren't a little high maintenance. This rich full bodied blonde pops in your mouth and invites you back for another sip. At 5.6%, the Valley Girl is an all-the-time beer. Whether you're chillin' in Malibu or just kickin' it in Sylmar, a Valley Girl Blonde fits the scene.
Good Day IPA
Style: IPA - Imperial / Double
ABV: 9.2%
IBUs: 93
# Ratings: 478
Score: 3.94
Centennial, Columbus, Simcoe and Citra hops blend perfectly to bring on a crashing wave of citrus balanced against a robust malt backbone. The grapefruit aroma and aftertaste stick with you long after the glass is empty. If you're celebrating a good day or trying to turn a bad one around, this double IPA is for you!
1st Stage IPA
Style: IPA - American
ABV: 6.9%
IBUs: 54
# Ratings: 405
Score: 3.75
First stage is a balanced single IPA with intermingling earthy pine, passion fruit and floral notes that finish clean and create the craving for another pour. This beer is our tribute to the deep history of aerospace in the San Fernando Valley and the most reliable rocket engine ever built. This is an IPA you can launch year-round.
Gravity Hill
Style: Belgian Tripel
ABV: 8.3%
IBUs: 29
# Ratings: 375
Score: 3.84
Gravity Hill is a full bodied tripel that mixes notes of clove, banana, and vanilla. Its sweet, rich flavor is balanced out with a warm and peppery finish that's guaranteed to shift your equilibrium. Named after a Sylmar urban legend in which things roll up hill, our 818 interpretation of this traditional Trappist style is our attempt at a gravity-defying flavor experience.
Reseda Rye
Style: IPA - Session / India Session Ale
ABV: 4.5%
IBUs: 35
# Ratings: 148
Score: 3.70
Reseda Rye is a homage to "growing up in Reseda" as did one of the owners of 818 Brewing. We spiced this session-able IPA with 10% rye malt and dry hopped her with Mosaic. You will encounter notes of blueberry, apricot, and peach with a crisp mouthfeel and clean finish at a crush-able 4.5% abv.
Impregnator
Style: Bock - Doppelbock
ABV: 8.3%
IBUs: 23
# Ratings: 116
Score: 3.85
There is a complex balance between the end of fall and the beginning of winter. This beer was made for that transition, to be shared with friends and family as we role into the celebration season. The brewing technique used to make this beer results in the max extraction of flavor from the malt. The hops are used to balance out the malt profile but the unique character of this beer stems from it’s hearty malty backbone! Enjoy the transition of flavors and taste the flavor of 2019!
Bag of Hops IPA
Style: IPA - American
ABV: 8.1%
IBUs: 53
# Ratings: 111
Score: 3.89
We brewed this straw colored IPA with Mosaic, Citra and Ekuanot. This version of our rotating hop series is a complex array of aromas and flavors. Fruity aromatics such as lemon, lime, pithy orange, tropical fruit, berry, papaya, and sometimes apple. Along with these there may be more herbal notes, like sage and eucalyptus. West coast style bitterness is apparent but light and encourages the hops to bring the tropical fruit to the forefront.
INDUSTRY PILS
Style: Pilsner - German
ABV: 4.2%
# Ratings: 62
Score: 3.65
We teamed up classic German Pilsner malt and Hallertau hops with our house lager yeast and Canoga Parks finest water to give you our Industry Pilsner. What industry you ask? Well, there are many obscure industries that give Canoga Park its seductive reputation and we challenged our industry with this flavorful gem that goes down easy, leaving you satisfied.
VALHALLA WILD BARREL AGED BELGIAN TRIPEL (2018)
Style: Belgian Tripel
ABV: 9.0%
# Ratings: 1
Score: 4.50
Our Valhalla series is the barrel aged tribute to the realm of departed Viking warriors, slain in battle. The barrels signify a heavenly realm where the sweet nectar is infused with spirits of the previous dweller. Our Belgian Tripel has been fermented with natural Brettanomyces in red wine barrels, creating notes of apricot, red wine, oak, and an earthy funk, finishing dry and slightly tart.
Canoga Crush
Style: Lager - American Light
ABV: 4.6%
IBUs: 18
# Ratings: 1
Score: 3.75
On those hot summer days in Canoga Park, we need the perfect crushable beer to quench this valley heat. Crush is our light lager simply brewed with the lightest barley, flaked corn, and spicy citrus hops for a year round easy drinking social companion.
Chatsworth Park after Dark
Style: Porter - Baltic
ABV: 8.0%
IBUs: 37
# Ratings: 183

Our black beauty is full bodied with sweet dark chocolate and hints of coffee that round out this 8% beer. She was fermented with lager yeast, resulting in a clean crisp finish.
Cat In the Hat
Style: Stout - American
ABV: 6.2%
IBUs: 50
# Ratings: 153
Score: 3.75
We brewed this beautiful full-bodied stout with a wide array of dark roasted malts. She is extremely dark, coming in at 38 SRM on the color scale. Notes of dark chocolate and espresso with a dry finish are pleasant on the palate. One pint of Cat in the Hat tempts you to have another and her sassiness keeps you coming back for more.
El Jefe del Trigo
Style: Wheat Beer - Other
ABV: 4.6%
IBUs: 21
# Ratings: 140
Score: 3.63
El Jefe is our refreshing American wheat ale brewed with sweet Valencia orange and white grapefruit zest. The oranges were harvested from the original Valencia orange trees of the San Fernando Valley and brewed with wheat malt resulting in a lightly bready yet bright and crushable summer staple.
Scorched Earth
Style: IPA - Black / Cascadian Dark Ale
ABV: 7.0%
IBUs: 63
# Ratings: 129
Score: 3.91
The Heliocentrists at 818 Brewing teamed up with the Flat Earthers over at Hand Brewed and came up with this dank, dark matter in a glass. Slight notes of dark chocolate and espresso touch the nose and end of the pallet while Citra and Cascade team up for piney citrus hop aromas.
MAX Q : Rev1
Style: IPA - Triple
ABV: 10.1%
IBUs: 120
# Ratings: 93
Score: 4.06
Max q is the maximum value of dynamic pressure on the rocket as it accelerates up through the atmosphere. For this triple IPA we maxed everything out, the hop aroma, bitterness and ABV. This is our tribute to the MERICA leading the way on the new space race!! REV1:1.7 LBS PER BBL DRY HOP SIMCOE-CENTENNIAL-CITRA- MOSAIC
Cu in Vienna
Style: Lager - Vienna
ABV: 4.9%
IBUs: 22
# Ratings: 79
Score: 3.50
Our Cu In Vienna is a classic copper hued Vienna style lager. It is rich in flavor from Vienna and Munich malts yet finishes crisp on the pallet with a slight earthy spice from Hallertau Mittelfrueh hops. Crush this on a hot summer day when you want more than just a light lager.
Double Tropix
Style: IPA - Imperial / Double
ABV: 9.5%
IBUs: 96
# Ratings: 58
Score: 4.09
Double Tropics is our unfiltered tropical double IPA, dry hopped with Simcoe, Centennial, Mosaic, and Citra. The earthy spice notes of Simcoe intertwine with the tropical fruit notes of Mosaic and Citra with a twist of citrus from the Centennial. We lowered the bittering hop to enhance all the juicy tropical fruit aromas these hops offer up. Enjoy!
(818) Maibock
Style: Bock - Hell / Maibock / Lentebock
ABV: 7.6%
IBUs: 28
# Ratings: 52
Score: 3.95
Maibock’s are traditionally brewed and lagered in the late winter to be enjoyed in May as the cool weather of early spring flows into the mildly balmy days of late spring. Our Maibock is subtle on the pallet with notes of honey and biscuit toast from the German Munich malts. The sweetness is balanced out by the Hallertauer noble hop backbone for a deceivingly drinkable pale full-bodied lager. Maibe it's the reason to celebrate the end of spring!
BOB and GERRY
Style: IPA - American
ABV: 7.0%
IBUs: 53
# Ratings: 49
Score: 4.04
This beer is an ode to Bob and Gerry who are regulars at the 818 taproom. When they walk in the doors, they are here for one thing… Hops, Hops and MORE HOPS. We brewed this straw colored IPA with Mosaic, Citra and HSB 342 experimental hop series. You will find notes of blueberry, passion fruit, melon, and citrus blended into this crystal clear west coast style hop bomb. The bitterness is apparent but light and encourages the hops to bring the tropical fruit to the forefront.
Hef'n Persistence

Valley Pride
Style: Extra Special / Strong Bitter
ABV: 6.0%
IBUs: 31
# Ratings: 39
Score: 3.89
We present to you a collaboration beer with MacLeod Ale. It represents the spoken words of what makes craft brewing culture different. Our ESB has a rounded malt character with a slightly nutty and straw like quality coming from the marris otter and dark roasted grain with some ripe fruit esters and crisp bitterness. We're excited for you to try VALLEY PRIDE! Cheers!
(818) Festbier
Style: Festbier
ABV: 6.3%
IBUs: 21
# Ratings: 33
Score: 3.84
818 Festbier is our tribute to the crisp drinkable German lagers currently on tap in Munich for Oktoberfest. Our Festbier retains the rich malt background and herbal floral hop notes reminiscent of a Martzen but lighter in color, alcohol, and sweetness, making this a crushable beerfest necessity.
VALHALLA WHISKEY BARREL AGED BALTIC PORTER (2018)
Style: Porter - Baltic
ABV: 10.4%
# Ratings: 33
Score: 4.36
Our Valhalla series is the barrel aged tribute to the realm of departed Viking warriors, slain in battle. The barrels signify a heavenly realm where the sweet nectar is infused with spirits of the previous dweller. Our Baltic Porter has been aged for 8 Months in Jack Daniels and Heaven Hill whiskey barrels, creating notes of coconut, sherry, coffee, vanilla, and dark chocolate.
Black Cat Moan
Style: Stout - Imperial / Double
ABV: 11.5%
IBUs: 60
# Ratings: 25
Score: 4.06
Black Cat Moan is our take on an imperial stout. We maxed out our mash kettle with this monster coming in at 11.5% ABV. She is a roasty beast with coco, cacao, espresso, and dark fruit notes yet not boozy and balanced out by her floral hop backbone. Take this beast home for the perfect beer float!
MAX Q : Rev3
Style: IPA - Triple
ABV: 10.1%
IBUs: 120
# Ratings: 19
Score: 4.21
Max q is the maximum value of dynamic pressure on the rocket as it accelerates up through the atmosphere. For this triple IPA we maxed everything out, the hop aroma, bitterness and ABV.

Our Valhalla series is the barrel aged tribute to the realm of departed Viking warriors, slain in battle.
