Did somebody say, “Whales! Bro!” 

Check out this line-up!

Frederick H. (4.4%)
Berliner Weisse
A light ale with bright, tart and refreshing flavors from lactobacillus, a hint of brettanomyces. Aged in oak foeders.

Frucht Guava (4.5%)
Berliner Weisse
Oak folder-aged berlin style tart wheat beer and packed with copious amounts of tart guava.

Goses Are Red (5.3%)
This is a rosé - and a gose - mash-up. Funky, crisp and tart with the soft sweetness of a rosé wine. This refreshing wheat-based beer is sweet, salty, spiced and tart.

Hoppy Obligation (5.6%)
Vermont Style Pale Ale
A cloudy Vermont-style pale ale with a heavy dosing of Simcoe, Citra and Mosaic hops.

Guava Libre (7.5%)
Imperial Cream Ale
A Bruery and Funky Buddha collab. Flavors reminiscent of a Cuban guava pastry. They included lactose and vanilla to impart sweet, custard-like ribbons, and guava for filling its conceptual authenticity. 

Sour In the Rye with Boysenberry (7.6%)
Wild Ale
Pleasantly sour with notes of berry, tart cherry, rustic earth and vanilla notes from a year-plus of barrel aging.

Mischief (8.5%)
Belgian Ale
This wickedly good golden ale is dry-hopped to add a layer of complexity and mystery to its fruity, dry Belgian-style character. Citrus and resin diabolically combine with ripe melon, pear and slight peppery spice in a precariously effervescent mixture. 

Valise (10.5%)
Sour Blonde
A wine-inspired sour ale with Viognier grapes. Boasting floral and stone fruit flavors that the fuller-bodied white wine is known for, all the while retaining the complexities of a wild, sour blonde ale. 

Share This: OC (11%)
Imperial Stout
 A well balanced orange-chocolate flavor profile brought out by the use of orange zest, vanilla and TCHO cacao nibs. 

Mash And Vanilla (13.3%)
A classic bourbon barrel-aged barleywine - kicked up a notch.  Oaky, sticky, coconutty and sweet flavors are amplified by its barrel character with the addition of fresh vanilla beans. 

Saule (16.1%)
Bourbon Barrel-aged Old Ale
Brewed for their 9th anniversary, aged in bourbon barrels and blended using the solera method. Robust and complex flavors of toffee, caramel, dark fruit, vanilla and oak.

2013 Black Tuesday (19.9%)
Bourbon Barrel-aged Imperial Stout
Rich caramel, toasted malt, vanilla, burnt wood and anise are just a few of the many flavors in this rich, decadent imperial stout. 

Mark your calendars! Break out your Tuesday best! And get ready to have your taste buds rocked by some of the O.C.’s finest! It’s going to be a great night of delicious food, amazing craft beer, music and friendship! Stay tuned for details on our delicious food specials we’ll have available for the celebration!

The Iron Press Costa Mesa - Karl Strauss Tap Takeover

The Iron Press Costa Mesa - Karl Strauss Tap Takeover

Don’t you wish you could just swallow these beers whole? Well… you can, next Tuesday, April 4th, 2017 from 5pm-10pm at our Costa Mesa location for our Karl Strauss Tap Takeover! Sierra Nevada has teamed up with Karl Strauss Brewing Company and together they have combined their award winning brews into ONE! They were so delighted with the outcome, they decided to go on tour! How awesome is that?! We are so grateful they chose The Iron Press Costa Mesa as one of their roadshow stops!

Here are some of our superstars for the event:

NXS (Karl Strauss/Sierra Nevada Collab) - This “Left Coast” IPA is a collaboration between Northern California’s Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. and San Diego’s Karl Strauss Brewing Company - who together represent nearly 65 years of brewing experience. NxS is unabashedly hoppy, in true California fashion, and features hop flavors of citrus and tropical fruit with a light and crisp malt body.

614 (Taylor Guitar Collab) -  Taylor Guitars and Karl Strauss have teamed up to create a beer that celebrates the best of both of our industries. Inspired by a trip to the Skagit Valley in the Pacific Northwest - an environmentally forward-thinking community known for its production of sustainable maple and world class malt. 614 (Six Fourteen) is a Farmhouse Ale with lively aromas and flavors of lemon zest, Belgian spice, and toasted notes from the addition of maple wood

28th Anniversary - This year’s full-bodied Barrel-Aged Belgian Quad is rich and malty, with flavors of dark fruit, caramel, and charred oak. Aging the beer in Four Roses Bourbon barrels gives it a surprisingly smooth, warming finish.

Big Barrel DIPA -  Imported New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops provide a vibrant tropical aroma that raises eyebrows and expectations. Aggressive amounts of Warrior and Ahtanum hops produce an assertive bitterness that stands out against a firm malt backbone. Balanced even at 90 IBUs, Big Barrel leaves a considerable first impression that serves as a prelude of things to come.

Dos Californias (‘Two Californians’) Lager - An easy drinking Mexican Lager with subtle flavors of habanero and agave, balanced by a clean, crisp malt-backbone. Contrary to many beers that use the habanero peppers, Dos Californianos has just enough habaneros to add flavor, but stops short of having intense heat.

Aurora Hoppyalis IPA - Our San Diego-style IPA brewed with Simcoe, Mosaic, Amarillo, and Citra hops. Robust flavors and aromas of tropical fruit, pine, and tangerine linger through a dry, crisp finish.

So, now you realize that you have to join us, right?! Come on! There will limited supply special edition pint glass giveaways and more beer than you can drink, guaranteed! So, get there early... Not to mention, we’ll have some hip tunes from DJ Lex and our always amazing appetizers and waffles! Get some!
