Great Green Flash Brewing Company: Just Another Great West Coast Brew

With more than 140 breweries now in San Diego County, it’s difficult to single out any brewery in the area as the best of the best, but without question, one of the breweries that continues to stand out is Green Flash Brewing Company. The brewery, which opened back in 2002 is one of the staples of the community, and has delivered one amazing beer after another. As if that wasn’t enough, the recently acquired Alpine Beer Company from Alpine, CA. Also a mastery brewery, the combination of the two definitely puts them near the top of the list of best breweries.
In recent years, the brewery has increased their output and production, and with another location set to open up in Virginia Beach, VA, this year, there’s no question that Green Flash beers will be available just about everywhere in the country.
Green Flash is largely responsible for the explosion of the west coast IPA style throughout the country. Their India Pale Ale, simply named West Coast IPA is a heavily hopped brew that comes in at 93 IBU. It definitely attacks the taste buds, and delivers a high-dosage of hops and bitterness. If looking for a true, big and bold IPA, this will deliver a great example of the style.
The great thing about Green Flash is that they’re constantly releasing special releases to go alongside their year round beers. In addition to the year round brews such as Soul Style IPA, 30th Street Pale Ale, Le Freak, and others, you should also look for a seasonal such as the 10.1% Green Bullet IPA, or the Jibe IPA, a simple session at 4.0%.
As mentioned, they recently acquired Alpine Beer Company, so if you are fortunate to secure anything from Alpine, they are definitely worth trying. Their Nelson IPA reigns supreme in their lineup, but others including Pure Hoppiness, Duet, or the rare Exponential Hoppiness are all must-haves.
If there’s one thing that can be said about Green Flashing Brewing Company, it is that you will be hard-pressed to find more consistently, well-executed beers. You may not like everything that they brew, as their styles can be far and wide, but it is clear that they know how to brew a good, solid beer. Next time you’re sitting at Der Biergarten in Sacramento, CA, be sure to look over the menu for something from one of these breweries. Trust us, you won’t be disappointed!

Der Biergarten opens as midtown’s latest beer destination

A story from our friends at http://www.sactownmag.com/

The long-awaited Der Biergarten opened its doors this weekend at 24th and K streets.

Midtown has a new home for foam at Der Biergarten, the long-delayed open-air beer destination that served up its first official brews over the weekend at 24th and K streets.

Local hopheads can try one of 32 draft beers and munch from a food menu of sausages, hot dogs, pretzels, salads and “Belgies”—ham sandwiches on waffles brimming with esoteric extras like mustard, cream cheese or chipotle raspberry sauce. Visitors order from a tap house and kitchen converted by owner Sean Derfield from industrial-size shipping containers, and gather at rows of communal tables or among the boisterous, streetside crowd framed by heavy redwood rails.

And while the place thrums with couples and groups (and even some of their dogs; the establishment is pooch-friendly) from happy hour to closing time, Der Biergarten is both scene and sanctuary for true beer believers of any (legal) age. The selections split evenly between classic German offerings and excellent West Coast brews; one-liter steins of Hofbrau Dunkel and Weihenstephaner share table space with tall, blooming glasses of golden Erdinger and svelte, sumptuous pints of Black Butte Porter from Deschutes Brewery in Oregon.

Choice beer picks include the Alt-Bier from Redlands-based Hangar 24 Brewery as well as Der Biergarten’s house blonde ale crafted by Lost Coast Brewery in Eureka and Buffalo Lager from Sacramento’s own New Helvetia Brewing Co. On the food side, the decadent DerFinator—a cheese-stuffed, bacon-wrapped, BBQ sauce-doused hot dog delivered on a bun slathered with cream cheese, red onions and Der Biergarten’s “secret garlic sauce”—is a must for meat-lovers, while vegetarians won’t go hungry with options like the hearty pretzel (served with mustard and cheese sauce) or cucumber salad with vinegar and dill dressing.

Der Biergarten is open seven days a week from 3 p.m.-10 p.m., weather permitting (“If it’s raining we are closed,” its website announces up front).

New German-themed bar looks to open in Midtown, Sacramento

Article released in Sacramento State Hornet newspaper.

Der Biergarten, opening up on the corner of 24th and K streets in Midtown, has promise to be a unique eatery Sacramento has not yet to seen.

Sean Derfield, owner of the River City Saloon,has been developing the idea since 2011 when he decided to build a German-themed beer house in the European open-air fashion.

Derfield said the new beer house will resemble San Francisco’s Proxy, a model of urban planning that demonstrates how a business can be successful by transforming underused areas like empty lots.

“It’s a beer garden that Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom came up with,” Derfield said. “(Proxy) used cargo containers for the architecture, and I thought, ‘What a great idea.’”

Thomas Roth, property manager of the plot agreed to the project because he thought it was such an interesting plan.

“This is a major corner in Sacramento,” Roth said. “The city is not used to shipping containers for buildings. It’s going to be great.”

But the project has been anything but easy to accomplish. Derfield said he has hit his share of speed bumps, mostly because of the use of the open cargo containers.

“Our plans kept getting kicked back with the city and health department, saying we couldn’t do this, couldn’t do that,” Derfield said. “Every time we objected to something, they had a different excuse.”

The plans to open before summer were delayed and Derfield was forced to open the exposed garden right before winter.

“It turns out that if you’re the first one to do something like this, they have to absolutely make sure it’s getting done right,” Derfield said.

One of the most exciting things about Der Biergarten is that it of only two beer gardens in Sacramento. Low Brau, located on 20th Street, opened last November.

Local restaurateurs, like Golden Bear’s executive chef, Matthew Brown, have also shown support and are anxiously waiting for the new beer garden to open.

“Everybody over here is excited and just waiting for it to open so they can check it out,” Brown said.

The garden will include concession style food, an open porch to sit and foosball and ping-pong tables.

“It’s an urban beer garden,” Derfield said. “It’s not traditional, we won’t be walking around in lederhosen.”

Derfield said the most important part of the business is its unique drafts.

“All the beer we are going to have you can’t just get at the bar down the street,” Derfield said. “We’ll have local favorites like Track 7 and New Helvetia, Pliny the Elder is a hot one too.”

Der Biergarten certainly promises to be something Sacramentans have not quite seen, especially for a traditional beer hall with an urban twist.

Although there has not been a specific opening date, those interested can go to www.beergardensacramento.com for more information.
