Beers We’re Brewing

Brewyard Beer Co. is a micro-brewery in Glendale, California specializing in a new category of Lagers known as “Common” Lagers. The only officially recognized beer of this hybrid style is the California Common (A.K.A Steam Beer).

What is a “Common” Lager?:  It’s a beer that is fermented with lager yeast at higher ale-like temperatures for shorter periods of time and completely skips the lagering process.  This brewing technique allows for a flavor profile similar to an ale but still retains a lighter finish of a traditional Lager.  We like to call them “Ale’d” Lagers for short.

    • Sunday Morning Joe *New*

      Blonde Common Lager w/ Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Coffee

    • Imposter Syndrome

      India Pale Common Lager (IPL)

      A cross between a n IPL and an IPA. Although still flavorful, the subtleties of three types of hops (Chinook, Cascade & Columbus) shine through because of the lighter and more drinkable Common lager base. It’s a new hybrid beer style of its own that any hophead will enjoy. 5.9% ABV

    • Perky DIPL

      Double India Pale Common Lager (DIPL)

      A cross between a DIPL and a DIPA.

    • Juicy Lies IPA *Out of Stock*

      Juicy Lies IPA

    • Soul Cal *Out of Stock*

      California Common (The Original Common Lager)

      A uniquely Californian beer style that was created out of necessity (due to lack of proper refrigeration) in the 1850’s during the California Gold Rush. Deep amber in color, hints of toast and caramel maltiness with an assertive earthy hoppy bitterness. This is definitely one for you amber beer lovers! 5.8%ABV

    • The Smoking Redhead

      Smoked Irish Red Common Lager

    • Column 2

    • Snashter Bez

      Scotch Lager

      Inspired by the Scotch Ale, this beer traditionally goes through a long boil in the kettle for a caramelization of the wort. This produces a deep copper to brown colored brew. Compared to Scottish Ales, this is sweeter and fuller-bodied.  Higher in alcohol, the Scotch Lager has a much more pronounced honey and caramel malt flavor.  7.1%ABV

    • Rocchio Dark Lager *Out of Stock*

      Dark Common Lager

      Rocchio Family Roasters roasted barley grains in their +200 year old family roaster for this special Dark Common style Lager.  Dark in color with a light hardwood charcoal roastiness that is similar to dark coffee but with a mild maltiness. 6.0% ABV

    • Black Sunrise

      Black Common Lager

      Based on a German-style Schwarzbier but "Common-ized". This beer is black as night with a mildly roasted chocolate flavor and a nice clean finish that doesn’t overpower the palate. Non-dark beer drinkers should give this one a chance. Prost! 5.4% ABV

    • Ready to Mingle w/ Calamansi

      Belgian Single w/ Calamansi

      Referred to as an Enkel ("Single" in Dutch) or Patersbier ("Fathers Beer") the Belgian single is the "lawnmower" beer of the Belgian Monks.
