Lazy Summer American Wheat

This Napa craft beer is a light, easy drinking Ale and about 1/2 wheat and fermented dry. It’s style is an American Wheat Beer. It is very refreshing and is our best selling beer in the summer. It uses Marris Otter malted barley from England as well as English grown Red Wheat. It is hopped with Horizon and US Spalt hops giving it a floral aroma.

Golden Ribbon Pale Ale

Showcasing Chinook and Cascade hops, this crisp and drinkable beer has just enough citrus and hop flavors to balance the "biscuit" malts.

Tantric India Pale Ale

This hoppy IPA is uniquely Californian; high in alcohol and except for the American hop aroma, is very British in style. This style was originally developed to survive the voyage from England around the Cape of Good Hope and back North to India to keep the British troops happy.

Tail Waggin' West Coast Bitter

Our West Coast Bitter is an overly hopped amber ale featuring grapefruit notes from Chinook and Nugget hops and caramel notes from the malts.

Rebob Porter

This Napa craft beer has a spooky past. Napa teens in love sneaking off down Partrick Road would be greeted by this freaky flying foe. Myth? Maybe. One thing's for sure, this beer is a favorite porter.

Old Magnolia Oatmeal Stout

This high gravity slightly sweet stout was named after the Grateful Dead song by the same name. The “chocolate milk of beers”, it makes a nice “Stout Float”.

Double Secret Probation IPA

A strong and aggressive IPA features lots of citrus, pine and apricot notes from Columbus, Centennial, and Amarillo hops with a residual matiness.

Raspberry Blonde

A clean and light blonde ale kissed with the aroma of raspberry. Customer christened in 2003 as "Tshela Umoya" - Zulu for Ride the Spirit of the Wind. This Napa craft beer runs out fast!

Tail Waggin' Amber Ale

Our most popular Ale was named for ladies that love to drink this beer and dance to the live music here. It is slightly sweet with a floral hop aroma. After 10 years this beer is still a favorite among the ladies and their admirers.

Triple Dog Dare IPA

Brewed in honor of the West Coast tradition of making bigger IPAs. We triple dog dare you to try half a pint of this Napa craft beer.

Dancing Feet Red Wheat Ale

Amber and malty. Great refreshing beer for a long summer’s night of dancing in the heat.

Golden Thistle Very Bitter Ale

This very hoppy beer was brewed accidentally, but of the accidents we have made, this one is our favorite! It is named to reflect the intense hoppyness that is like chewing on a thistle. This beer is the Happy Hour favorite to this day.

Ruddy Mutton Irish RedHigh Five Celebration Ale

Roasty and deep copper in color. This is our Maltiest beer, traditionally served on St. Patrick’s Day. Brewed every 500 batches, each recipe is different and made to the brewers whim.

Overdue Porter

No bizarre story here. Just a roasty and chocolaty brew, made with all British malts and hops. A classic and favorite.

Tail Waggin' Amber Ale

Our most popular Ale was named for ladies that love to drink this beer and dance to the live music here. It is slightly sweet with a floral hop aroma. After 10 years this beer is still a favorite among the ladies and their admirers.

A Little History on the Napa Craft Beer

You can trace the history of each Napa craft beer to the late 1800’s, just when Napa started brewing its first beers. There were at least 3 breweries in 1895 with the largest being Napa City Brewing and The Brewer’s Collective. We can estimate that Napa City Brewery was producing 100,000bbl per year based on found fire insurance records of vessel floor prints.

Of course, our beloved Napa craft beers saw an end with prohibition, and it wasn’t until the 1980’s that the valley saw another brewery. 1987 brought Napa Valley Brewing Company and shortly after, Willet’s Brewery in 1988. Willet’s eventually became Downtown Joe’s in 1993, bringing with it the rich history of the Napa craft beer.
