Quarantine is a drag, but a Keelhaul will improve morale. We went a bit overboard with the Ekuanot, Simcoe, and El Dorado hops on this 7.2% ABV West Coast IPA, but we were rewarded with fruity flavors of overripe Apricots, Orange zest and resinous Pine. Keelhaul is a suitably bitter beer for the present. Spare the Albatross- drag the captain.
We've set up a growler exchange program for our loyal fanatics. If you already have a Ghost Town Growler, select "I'll swap mine" when you order for curb side pick up and avoid purchasing a new one. When you come to pick up your order just hand off the old growler, and you're on your way.
Final Rites Rye won't be the last! As we slowly grind through this collective nightmare, we've found reassurance in familiar pleasures- like our spicy rye. Final Rites is a malty, amber-colored ale with a mild, crisp, bitterness to balance its ample body. We first brewed this beer nearly a decade ago, and it has been with us through some strange, difficult times- may it accompany you through this too.
Death Rattle Double IPA Freshly Canned and ready for curbside pick up. Death Rattle is our 8.6% ABV classic West Coast Double IPA with Simcoe and Mosaic hops. It's flavors and aromas of fresh berries, and pine forests are a taste of the warm summer days we're yearning for.
We could all use something light and clean right about now- our modest offering is Geisterfaust Pilsner. A slightly sweet honey-like malt profile, floral hops, and crisp effervescence are a refreshing (if all too fleeting ) sigh of relief. > Available now for online ordering and curbside pickup.
🍺 Pints to go ➡️ We are now offering tap-filled 16 oz. cans. You can design your ideal mixed 4-pack or just grab a single. Curbside pick-up has proven to be a safe and simple way to get beer to our fanatics. We are humbled by the outpouring of support we've received so far. Please keep it up, and be sure to tip our hardworking bar staff when you place your order. 🤘 > We purge all cans with CO2 to minimize oxidation, but these controls are less consistent than with ordinary canning, so we urge you to consume them within 3 days of packaging. All cans are made to order.
Now available in cans! Misanthrope Hazy IPA will help you learn to love sheltering in place. Misanthrope is 7.2% ABV and generously hopped with Simcoe, Enigma, Motueka, Idaho 7, and Mosaic, for flavors of fresh Pineapple, Kumquats, and Mangoes that are so intense you won't mind canceling that tropical vacation. Sure, you'll miss out on the middle seats, strangers with poor elbow etiquette, booger-smeared kids kicking your seat back, suspiciously sick-looking spring breakers, and mutants who save their toenail trimming for public spaces, but this beer will help you get over it. > Crowlers, growlers, and 16oz tap-filled cans are available for online ordering and curbside pick-up now. Cans will be available at Bay Area grocery stores and markets in the next few days.
🕳️Maelstrom IPA🕳️ As our civilization circles the drain with increasing speed, it's worth savoring a moment with one of our earliest and best inventions- Beer!

Misanthrope Hazy IPA Misanthropy is why we drink; Misanthrope IPA is why we drink beer. This 7.2% AVB hop chowder with Simcoe, Enigma, Motueka, Mosaic, and Idaho 7 descends tomorrow with its big, bright flavors of Pineapple, Kumquats, and Mangoes. If social distancing was already part of your routine, Misanthrope IPA is your new best friend. 💀 Happy Friday the 13th - No touching y'all.
What's the point of exile without a Pillory? This batch of Pillory Kettle Sour is brewed with in-house pureed fresh Ginger and Pomegranate (the original forbidden fruit ) for a tasteful chord of refreshingly balanced spice and tartness. Pillory is mildly sour, so gluttons for pH punishment may be disappointed, but we think it's an appropriate sentence.
A Prowler has been creepin' around the taproom. This unnerving 5.7 % ABV West Coast Pale Ale is hopped with Mosaic and Ekuanot for a striking profile of Kaffir Limes, Gummy Bears, and POG. Prowler's fruitiness and perceived sweetness is disarming, but its dry, bitter bite quickly follows.
Top of the Line! Bottom Feeder Hoppy Pilsner is crisp, clear, and refreshing- as a Pilsner should be- but with flavors of melon and bright citrus from the Citra hops. It manages to do the unthinkable feat of satisfying lager traditionalists and hop heads alike. Bottom Feeder's 5.9% ABV means you can savor the session with an extra round.
🧟Rot Gut Firkin🧟♀️ At 4 pm tomorrow, @ghoulofficial and @hella_hot_hot_sauce will join us for a Rot Gut explosion. Rot Gut is a special collaboration Firkin, lovingly crafted from our Scumbag Cream Ale and Brain Jerk hot sauce, with Piri Piri Peppers, and Citrus added. Pints are $4 and supply is very limited. Ghoul will be giving out free insults, and Hella Hot Hot Sauce will be selling their killer wares. It'll be a vile time for the whole family.
Look who's popping' up this Friday. Lecherous Haze IPA blasts its jagged, fuzzed-out bitterness at a higher volume than the typical Hazy IPA- because an IPA without bitterness is fuckin' soft rock. It's hefty Citra and Mosaic dry-hop has overly forward notes of Pineapples, Berries, Key Lime, and Orange zest. Lecherous Haze is a proposition that's actually worth taking.
Lucky You! Monkey's Paw Juicy IPA is back on tap tomorrow. This wicked-willed liquid is 6.66% ABV, and 100% Mosaic hopped for disarmingly sweet-sounding notes of berries and citrus. We fermented this uncanny curiosity with a Barbarian yeast that's associated with hazy IPAs, but it's bitterness, and minimal turbidity are vaguely West Coast. Close your eyes, take a sip, and see what unfolds.
Donner Party Animal Hazy IPA is trekking into the taproom tomorrow. This all-consuming Idaho 7 and Citra hopped, 6.66% ABV reveler is fun, charming, and unlike anyone else you'll ever meat. Unfortunately Donner Party Animal is also that guy who shows up at the BBQ with a grapefruit and an apricot- then proceeds to eat everyone else. He's also rather pungent smelling. Still, we can't help but love the dude. 🍻🍖🎉 The first 50 campers to buy a 4-pack of Donner Party Animal will get a free pint glass with a picture of the hunk himself.
Polydactyl Pale Ale is determined to help you pass out on the couch. This full-bodied West Coast Pale Ale with Mosaic and Citra hops won't stop shedding notes of Mandarin, Papaya,Pineapple and Dark Honey. Don't be coy like our former brew cat, Count Tyrone Rugen, because Polydactyl won't last long.
☄️Extinction Event☄️ The odious present calls for an Extinction Event- our new Imperial Stout with Coffee, Vanilla and Chocolate. At 5pm tomorrow, this 10% ABV maliciously viscous stout will make the deafening noise goes silent. Smooth cold brew from @kinesis .coffee , Nicaraguan Cocoa nibs from @bisouchocolate , and a touch of vanilla collide with the roasty malt to give you a sweet kiss goodnight. 💀💀💀💀💀💀
Eeeeeeradi-cator! Let out a mighty scream for the unmasking of Eradicator, our foeder-aged Doppelbock. This 7.5% ABV German-style lager has sweet malty notes of chocolate, coffee, molasses, vanilla and dried cherries. The foeder-aging lends a mild, but complex, oak tannin bitterness that enriches the clean, relatively dry finish. Let the carnage begin! > Label art by: @elr0ck Balaclava fashion and squash domination: @black .metal.vibes
Secret Society Hazy IPA is stepping out from the shadows. Little is known about Secret Society, except that it is 6.7% ABV, 37 IBUs, and cloaked in Vic Secret & Mosaic hops. Hushed rumors stir that several of the elusive silhouettes among its ranks are Mandarine Oranges, Mangoes, and Lychees. The rest of the truth, you'll have to discover for yourself.
Catacomb Pale Ale has come bubbling from the depths of Ghost Town Brewing. This 5.7% ABV, 31 IBU cellar dweller, is hopped with Moutere and Waimea- two awesome hops from the bottom of the Earth (New Zealand. ) Catacomb has floral notes of papaya and gummy worms as well as a mild citrus and pine bite that's supported by a sturdy grain bill.
