Where do you ship?
Currently we ship beer within California only. We DO ship merchandise to all states within the US.
How does the shipping work?
Beginning January 1, 2023, we will only ship on Thursdays each week. Beer will be sent next-day delivery and merchandise will ship via USPS. Our beer shipping cutoff time is Thursday at 2 PM (for Friday delivery). For example, if you place an order Thursday night, it will ship the following Thursday.
Do I have to be 21+ to order and receive my delivery?
Yes, you must be 21 or older to purchase beer and someone 21 or older must be available to sign for the package. No exceptions and you cannot give your ID to someone underage to sign. Carriers will not leave packages unattended. After three unsuccessful attempts your shipment will be returned to sender.
How much does shipping cost?
Beer: $18 flat rate for all beer orders under $200. For orders over $200, shipping is included.
Merchandise: Free for orders over $50! For orders under $50, the shipping costs are calculated using the standard USPS rates.

Oak Barrel-Aged Sour Ale with Cabernet Sauvignon & Cabernet Franc Grapes
*Collaboration with Black Sears Winery
Format: 375ml bottle
DARK CHERRY. POMEGRANATE. WET GRAVEL.
Tao is our unique sour ale built on the pomace of organic cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc grapes. These grapes are grown in a wild, remote, biodynamic vineyard atop Napa's Howell Mountain, Black Sears; they have been described as "containing the entire diversity of the forest." Fermented solely on the pre-existing yeast on the skins from the wine fermentation, we then pressed the skins and aged the beer for a year in Bordeaux wine barrels. This third batch of our beer-wine hybrid contains notes of dark cherry, pomegranate, and oak, with a bright acidity and dry finish. From the barrel-aged and sour ale lover to the wine enthusiast, Tao is for you.
