Greetings Craft Beer Enthusiasts!

It's been a busy blur of a summer here at Island Brewing Company and we thank you for being part of the magic. We've had some phenomenal music acts, engaging events both at the brewery and further afield, and we've got a whole lot more coming down the pike in September, so check out our calendar below. But first to the beers!

If you've been living under a rock, you may not know that our collaboration brew with Rincon Brewery and BrewLab resulted in a spot-on, thirst-quenching beer known aptly enough as the Tres Cervezerias Pilsner. Think Galaxy and Simcoe hops, a light body, low abv, and all day fun in the sun. We've still got a few kegs left for the sunny days ahead, so get on it if you don't know about it.

And on the other end of the stylistic spectrum, we have a very special beer coming up . That would be the return of the RISistance Russian Imperial Stout. This is the biggest beer we've ever brewed. Silky, smooth, chocolate forward. Last year's edition was 11.5%, so proceed accordingly. Seriously good stuff.

And is it too early to talk about Avocado Festival? We've got our Avo Honey IPA underway, so look for that sumptuous piece of craft beer magic in the not-so-distant future. Classic pine, citrus, and stone fruit flavors joining 60 lbs of Avocado Honey for truly a unique IPA with copper colored crushability.


September starts on the right foot, and keeps on going. We've got a calendar chock full of musical and non musical adventure. This Saturday, September 1, we'll have the local and much-loved Skamakazie in the brewery for the usual phenomenal time. We've also got Will Breman, King Bee, Rick Reeves, So Far So Near, Charlie Baker, Alice Austin, and Cabbage. Food trucks Phoevermore and WoodStock Farina will be here, then there's Tuesday Trivias, an always interesting talk from the good folks at Santa Barbara Creek Week, and at the end of the month, our third edition of Stories on Tap in which speakers regale with tales of adventure and misadventure. German club too! Details are over here:
