Some customer favorites at Tap 25 include:
Sudwerk Hefeweizen, 4.7% from Davis, CA
An unfiltered Bavarian style wheat beer with a distinctive aroma and flavor profile true to the style; spicy, slightly fruity, dry and refreshing.
North Coast Red Seal Ale 5.5% Fort Bragg, CA Malt and hops are beautifully married in this full-bodied, copper-red Pale Ale. It is generously hopped for a long, spicy finish. An easy drinking Pale Ale.
Firestone Walker Double Jack 9.5% from Paso Robles, CA
This Imperial IPA features a big malty middle to cloak the high alcohol and mouth puckering hop bitterness. Huge tangerine, grapefruit and juicy fruit aroma blossom over the herbal blue basil and malt earthiness of this aggressive beer.
High Water Old & In The Way, 10.5% from Belmont, CA
Brewed in the traditional English Barley Wine Style, it has bold flavors of toffee, treacle and caramel. Let this one warm up to fully experience the depth and complexity in this beer.
