An American adaptation of Vienna Lagers, the California Common is a copper colored, crisp, beer with enough malt backbone to warm the soul on a blustery San Francisco day. Fermented warm like an ale and kept in cold storage before bottling, California Commons are one of the earliest uniquely American styles of beer. Ours has a rich, long-lasting head and mild smooth flavors, followed by balanced hop bitterness.
