experimentation is a philosophy

We like to experiment. It is both humbling and eye-opening. So we make gruits. Gruit is the umbrella term for a medieval style of beer that incorporates many types of bittering agents other than hops. Born from the brewer's imagination and the necessity of using whatever grew nearby, Gruit is a broad category of beers that experiments with traditional and unique ingredients. Our contemporary vision takes this to its logical and illogical conclusions - we use everything from wormwood to black tea to turmeric to wild yeasts harvested from the Los Angeles surrounds. We want you to enjoy our brews, but also to take the creative message of the Gruit to heart. Create something!
