New Beers at Alvarado Street Brewery and Grill

Posted on November 21st, 2014 by omba

The week of November 21, 2014, Brewmaster J.C. Hill at Alvarado Street Brewery and Grill is launching two new beers, Old Town Brown and Monterey Common, and bringing back a favorite, Citraveza.  We invite you to stop by and try them!

Old Town Brown: An American-style Brown ale with notes of caramel and cocoa. Brewed with Patagonian specialty malts that lend a distinct richness, making this a full flavored beer that goes great with heartier dishes and colder weather.

Monterey Common: A toasty, biscuit-like amber hybrid that's fermented with lager yeast at ambient Monterey temperatures. This is a remake of regional classic known as a California Common. Malt forward and balanced with just enough hops, our Monterey Common is brewed with Munich and a touch of Pale Chocolate malt to impart a subtle vanilla character in the background.

Citraveza: a hoppy, Mexican-style lager brewed with 100% Citra hops, which impart a unique tropical character coupled with the clean, crisp zippiness of a lager. A refreshing beer that should satisfy light beer drinkers and hop heads alike....Read More
