St. FLORIAN'S BREWERY Beers
When asked what distinguishes St. Florian's from other breweries...one characteristic always stands out for us above others: BALANCE! As our local firefighter, Aron operates on adrenaline day in & day out...when he leaves his firehouse to return to the brewery, it seems only natural that he'd seek balance & moderation. As our brewmaster, Aron exemplifies balance as he crafts beer. Whether in or out of the firehouse, brewhouse, our house, or your house, every day is entirely unique. Thus, we craft a range of beers to suit any given day: light, dark, hoppy, crisp, sour, barrel-aged. We hope that everyone will feel welcome and find something in our line-up to suit their personal palate.
Let's drink to the hero in ALL of us!
St. Florian's Brewery CORE/FLAGSHIP RELEASES
"48/96" references a typical firefighter's schedule: 48 hours on-duty, followed by 96 hours to recover from a rigorous shift. 48/96 drinks like a pilsner with "oomph", a slightly hoppy blonde ale, a flavorful cream ale, or a pale-pale ale; a very light, crisp, lager-esque beer with enough body to cleanse your palate. A quintessential beer to refresh you during your time "off-duty": Single-hop Citra session ale with a touch of rye at 4.8% ABV.
Baseball games, mowing the lawn, a day on the lake, basking by the pool, happy hour, BBQs… an anytime, anywhere craftbrew that pairs with (virtually) anything you do during your time off…
St. Florian’s Brewery California Common
A lager fermented at ale (warmer) temperatures. It represents the best characteristics of both of these styles: the rich, malty body of an ale balanced with the crisp, clean, refreshing flavor of a lager. St. Florian’s Brewery California Common rounds off with mellow fruitiness & an underlying earthy hoppiness. Native style to the San Francisco Bay Area. 6.0% ABV & 35 IBUs
Barbeque & spicy cuisine, oysters, lamb chops, tangy cheese, sushi, bread pudding… just about anything (especially the quintessential San Francisco treats: crab, clam chowder, sourdough bread, cioppino, & on)!
CALIFORNIA STATE FAIR COMMERCIAL CRAFT BREWING COMPETITION 2015 – GOLD AWARD: AMBER HYBRID CALIFORNIA COMMON
GREAT AMERICAN BEER FESTIVAL 2015 - BRONZE MEDAL: AMERICAN STYLE AMBER LAGER
CALIFORNIA STATE FAIR COMMERCIAL CRAFT BREWING COMPETITION 2016 – BRONZE AWARD: AMBER HYBRID
An “East Coast meets West Coast” Style IPA. East Coast IPAs are historically on the malty side. And, the typical IPA motto on the West Coast: “the hoppier the better”. Flashover IPA represents both styles in a well-balanced, easy-drinking brew with a citrus overtone: very hoppy with a malty backbone. 7.3% ABV & 75 IBUs
Burgers, sausages & most other meat; salty or fried food; pizza; spicy cuisine: curry, Thai, Mexican; chocolate & other savory desserts.
ST. FLORIAN'S BREWERY LIMITED & SEASONAL RELEASES
BACK TO THE RIND IPA
Our grapefruit IPA brightens your day with zesty, robust grapefruit flavor. Brewed with citrusy hops and topped off with grapefruit zest, you might just wonder whether you're even drinking a super hoppy IPA. If you like grapefruit and citrus notes, try it (even if you're no hophead)! 7.5% ABV & 75 IBUs
Anything you'd wash down with grapefruit juice (and then some...)...
St. Florian’s Brewery Brown Ale
An English-American hybrid Brown Ale built upon English & American hops, and English yeast. While most Brown Ales tend toward bitter or sweet, this ale glides over your tongue perfectly balanced between those flavor profiles with a surprisingly light, palate-cleansing body. 6.0% ABV & 22 IBUs
Stews, corn, hamburgers, rich desserts, dark meat, earthy vegetables, nutty or mild cheese, any meal you’d drink a rootbeer or cola with…
A big IPA fermented with Belgian yeast, but we don't necessarily call this a "Belgian Style IPA" (first: it's much more fun to say "Uberschlag" & secondly...). We hold back the yeast so as to richen up the body and add some sweet fruity notes & spicy notes to Uberschlag. The Belgian aspects don't overwhelm the IPA, they soften up the hops and add their notable characteristics to the complexity of the beer. 7.3% ABV & 75 IBUs
Sharp or tangy cheeses, such as apricot stilton or aged cheddar; rare meats, carpaccio, or prime rib with horseradish sauce; spicy Thai dishes; crème brulee.
CALIFORNIA STATE FAIR COMMERCIAL CRAFT BREWING COMPETITION 2015 – SILVER AWARD: SPECIALTY IPA
BELLA ROSA ENGINE STOUT
Our friends at Bella Rosa Coffee Company of Santa Rosa roast beans with an innovative process, producing beans with a remarkably low acidity level. Their Roasters Reserve is featured in this stout, which accentuates smooth coffee notes. 6.5% ABV.
Bleu cheese; carne asada torta (loaded with guacamole and jalapenos!); salted caramel ice cream.
A variation of our Brown Ale, barrel-aged in local bourbon barrels, from Prohibition Spirits in Sonoma, for approximately 7-to-8 months. During aging, the ale takes on the barrels’ vanilla & smoky oak tones. 6.0% ABV
Cigars & bonfires, BIG steaks & burgers.
EXTREME CONDITIONS DOUBLE IPA
Extremely juicy. Extreme levels of Amarillo, Citra & Mosaic hops; yet true to St. Florian’s Brewery tradition, we maintain a threshold of balance which won’t put your palate under duress. 9.4% ABV & 94 IBUs
Carbs (got to load up to absorb the 9.4% ABV): pizza (especially thick crust Chicago style); noodles (pesto pasta, lasagna, pad thai, ramen...); loaded baked potatoes; rice bowls; corn on the cob; potato chips; fruit salad.
A New England Style Pale Ale. This quaffable, juicy ale is slightly hazy, very juicy with a very slight bit of hoppiness. Azacca and Mosaic hops add the juicy notes, and yeast traditionally used in a popular Vermont beer attains the haze. Mutual Aid is the act of providing neighborly assistance during times of need. Mutual Aid originated as a refreshing collaboration with our friends at Bear Republic Brewing Company as a fundraising effort during the October 2017 Tubbs Fire. This beer is virtual love & sunshine in a glass. 6.0% ABV & 37 IBUs
Any day that warrants a little extra love & sunshine (we all can use that!). This ale is truly versatile, building a fan base amongst light beer & lager drinkers, cider drinkers, those who reach for sour beers, hopheads who rave about juicy IPAs, folks who dig wheat beers... ; thus, it pairs with a very broad variety of cuisine.
A variation of our Brown Ale, barrel-aged in local red wine barrels, from Malm Winery in Healdsburg, for approximately 6-to-7 months. During aging, the ale takes on the flavors naturally found in the barrels, with a slight inflection of tart pucker. It reflects the bright flavors of the fruits of our Sonoma County vines, with 6.0% ABV.
Green salad with cranberries & vinaigrette; pork with fig reduction sauce; roasted duck; short ribs; dark chocolate lava cake; tart cherry pie,
