Need a good beer for the weekend?

Try one of these delectable West Coast IPAs you wont be disappointed. The mosaic, Simcoe and Citra shine through magnificently on this refreshing hoppy beer. This is everything you are looking for in a San Diego-style IPA. It’s bright, bursting with hop fruitiness, and refreshingly dry. Crack one open and get ready to feel those weekend vibes!

Spencer The Monk’s Reserve Ale $4.50

Spencer The Monk’s Reserve Ale

Alright we admit it. We love IPAs, we cant get enough of that hoppy freshness. Yet if you’re tired of IPAs (for some reason) and want to try something a little more classic, may I suggest the Monk’s reserve ale? Spencer is a Trappist Quadrupel, and a fantastic one at that. This Quad is fragrant, robust and full-bodied, mahogany in color and crowned with a dense, tan, frothy head. Its malt-forward profile yields to a warm finish, with an ABV of 10.2%

Modern Times Blazing World $4.50

Modern Times Blazing World

Here is another IPA we just cant stay away from them. Crack this dank IPA open and you’ll see why it made the list. We pulled this quote from the modern times website. Its the description of this great beer:

“This beer is the stickiest of the icky. It’s a luxuriously hoppy IPA loaded up with intemperate quantities of Nelson, Mosaic, and Simcoe hops, which are some of the fruitiest, dankest hops sweet, sweet money can buy. Its pleasingly dry character and lightly bready malt backbone form a magnificent platform for its huge, complex hop profile. Prepare to have your flavor ports stormed by an armada of inter-dimensional taste lords.”

Dionysus Up Up Down Down $4.50

Dionysus Up Up Down Down

So many great things to say about this Pilsner, our favorite? Its made right here on the streets of Bakersfield. This is a local favorite brewery’s take on a German style pilsner. Its a very well done beer. Crispy, fresh and pristine. A beautiful thread of hops throughout the duration of the beer. Great choice for everyday drinking. Support local, come grab a 6 pack at imbibe today!
