We take great pride in being pioneers in the American Craft Brewing Renaissance and even greater pride in our range of ales that beer lovers all over the country have made Legends. We hope that the pages on this site will let you know some more about how we started and about our passion for brewing the best.
Black Hawk Stout
Black Hawk Stout retains the big traditional flavors of an Irish-style stout and yet offers a refreshing dry crispness that is rare in many dark beers. Black Hawk Stout is replete with a rich, roasted malt flavor that makes this not-so-heavy stout, creamy and ever so smooth. It has a subtlety that surprises and converts even the most reticent stout drinker.
Blue Heron Pale Ale
6.1% Pale Ale
Blue Heron Pale Ale is a delightful, medium bodied smooth ale, with a distinctive crisp mouth-feel and a fresh hoppy finish. It is brewed using premium two-row Pale malted barley, generous amounts of both Cluster bittering hops and Cascade finishing hops and our own special proprietary yeast strain.
Eye of the Hawk
8% Strong Ale
Eye of the Hawk is an excellent, rich bodied ale that is brewed to perfection. “Eye” is coppery reddish-amber in color and its unique taste is the result of a judicious mix of caramel and pale malted barley, balanced with Cluster, Cascade and Saaz hops. This gives the Eye its luxurious flavor, substantial mouth-feel and that slightly dry finish. Eye of the Hawk has garnered a cult following that is enviable.
10% Imperial IPA
Talon Double IPA is much more than just hops. Skilled brewers have developed this Double IPA featuring intricate layers of flavor with their artful use of 5 unique varieties of malt and 6 distinct varieties of hops before a round of intense dry hopping. The result is an abundantly fragrant hop nose with a bright hop flavor layered throughout in perfect harmony with a rounded malt body. Talon Double IPA finishes bold, strong and fulfilling, and demands many repeated explorations of this supremely enjoyable IPA.
Red Tail Ale
6.1% Amber Ale
Red Tail Ale is Mendocino’s flagship brand. It is brewed in the traditional “old world” manner, using premium two-row malted barley, hops, and a special proprietary yeast strain. It is an amber ale with a rich complex refreshing flavor and a crisp dry finish. Like good wine, Red Tail Ale is a perfect complement to fine dining.
White Hawk IPA
7% India Pale Ale
White Hawk Select IPA is a traditional India Pale Ale. We’ve blended American West Coast Cascade Hops with a very generous dose of English Fuggle Hops. This combination makes for a very aromatic character, as well as a truly authentic English flavor which you must taste to believe. “Hopheads” will love this brew!
