Commercial Description

Cali Common. The very first historically recognized beer style
ofour Golden State; born not only of geography, but of necessity.
In the late 19th century, prospectors and immigrants flocked to
California for a taste of the Gold Rush, and with it, dreams of
wealth and of staking their claim in the wilderness. With no
refrigeration to ferment their old world lager recipes at the
colder, cave temperatures in the mountains of southern Germany,
they used what they had: a pioneering spirit, combined with
determination and need. In other words, like the rest of us
usually do, they did the best they could.
Our version, made with the same process, is a medium-light
bodied beer with hints of caramel, toffee, and toast. Traditional
German hops with herbal, spicy aroma and flavor presents an easy
bitterness that gives way to the slight sweetness of munich malt,
revealing a balanced, easy-going, and very drinkable beer. We think
you’ll enjoy this accessible descendant of the original california
common, formed out of the needs for the people, in a time of discovery,
independence, and courage
