Beers List

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

What is a “California” or “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 body of a traditional Lager.  They can be cloudy or clear in appearance.  We like to call them “California Lagers” since their origins stem from the California Common.
