They focus (non-monogamously) on aroma-driven, complex, flavorful, sessionish beers and hail from California USA. They often brew hybrid styles, combining the features we like from established categories to create new, Island-Of-Doctor-Moreau-style mash-ups.

Fortunate Islands combines the mildly nutty malt body of a wheat beer with the intensely bright, citrusy hoppiness of a righteous IPA. Black House has the full-body, robust chocolatey flavor, and intense coffee aroma of its imperial counterparts, but packed into a 5.8% ABV package. Blazing World combines the subtly fruity qualities of a dry amber ale with the enormous hop-profile of an über-dank double IPA.

Lomaland, Their flagship saison, isn’t so much a hybrid, as a return to origin—a quenching, sessionable, farmhouse libation. Sporting a mixed grain bill and fermented with a blend of Belgian yeast strains, Lomaland offers the complexity and nuance of the most traditional examples of the style.They like to think that it’s so traditional, it’s avant-garde.

They also brew loads of special release and one-offs batches, allowing us to pursue our various whims. We have a tank dedicated to beers fermented with Brettanomyces—an alternative yeast strain capable of producing wildly distinct flavors—and our sour programs is just getting off the ground.
