    seems like not many of us have heard of them judging by all the views and no responses
  3. seems they have been around a couple years, and are avail in a few places around, but haven't tried em yet. wonder if they are contract brewed

    They have some of their beers at Mission Pizza...If I remember correctly, they were ones specifically made for Mission Pizza. I had 2 of the offerings, a blond and a black IPA. Blond was average, black IPA was way too syrupy sweet.
  5. Nothing in the city of Fremont is good.
  6. New bottle shop/tap room opening up in fremont

    That's not entirely true, but it's close enough that I won't argue the point.

    More info please! Especially if this will be anything like BeerRev.

    Of course, someone would do this as soon right as I'm about to move out of Union City.

    Yeah my roommate got hired to work at the place opening in Fremont, but got offered more at his current job. I believe it's opening up right across from Ohlone College in the same shopping center the other Mission Pizza used to be.

    JPDasBrew started production brewing about two years ago. They make blonde ale (koelsch), hefeweizen, irish red, imperial IPA and triple black IPA. All in house, all grain. 100 gallon batches. 5 to 10 kegs per week.

    A small local operation - but truly in the spirit of authentic German beer. They make an exceptional hefeweizen - the best I have found in the US - why? because all the ingredients are shipped in from Germany. The Schutze are a husband and wife team - he is German, and knows his beers. They are a contract brewer and the Black IPA, which is a little over the top, they made for the owner of Mission Pizza, by the owner's design.

    You will only find this local to the South Bay in SF, but if you like here, try theirs. Mission Pizza, by the way, has the best tap in the Bay Area - about 20 drafts, of quality breweries, often rotated. I have discovered many a good brew there, Plus their pizza is top class in the California style, fresh ingredients, made to order. Out standing pizza, great beer, you cannot go wrong

    Been going to Mission Pizza for years now. I agree they have a nice tap list, but definitely not the best in the Bay Area. I'm thinking you meant in Fremont, or for a pizza spot.

  14. Or maybe just for a pizza spot in Fremont.

    Certainly the best in the Ohlone Village Shopping Center.

    (Good spot for sure, though)

    I just had two of their beer at California Craft beer (http://www.yelp.com/biz/california-craft-beer-fremont ). Amazing flavors and goes down really smooth! Had the Eye Crosser IPA 8.8% and the Triple Blitz Dark Ipa 12%. Definitely out does the microbrews around Fremont and San Jose! I recommend anybody to try them. I met the owner also. Very cool and laidback guy.

    Is Triple Blitz the Black IPA? I had a little pour of it last night at Mission Pizza and didn't care for it. But there seem to be two things working against the beer there: frosted glasses and seemingly very old kegs (even the Stone IPA was meh).

    I don't know what it is about Fremont, but so many beercentric businesses have come and go over the years without anybody taking much notice. I lived there for about a year in the early 90's and remember a brew pub by a golf course. Given that I still have friends there, I try to stay on top of things, but almost always, I hear more about these businesses than people who live right there ever hear about them.

    We have two IPA's. Our 1st is the Eye Crosser IPA, which is an Imperial IPA, intensely hoppy and is a very strong pale ale that lacks harshness. 2nd is our Triple Blitz IPA resembles a stour in color and has flavors of espresso and chocolate and a dry hopped character.

    If you didnt prefer the way Mission Pizza served you, then please come down to our Tasting Room and you can try our fresh beers and check out our brewing processes as well (brewery is right next door).

    I'll definitely come and check out the establishment. I love black IPAs (or CDAs, whatever you want to call them).

    What kind of hops do you use in the IIPA? I tend to like tropic fruit DIPAs more than piney / resiny ones.
  23. DasBrew

    DasBrew Aspirant (40) California May 12, 2013

    For the Eye Crosser we use a Northern Brewer (a German varietal), Centennial, Cascade, and one other that i dont know off the top of my head (but if you really want to know i can get that information for you as well).

    Just an update: We are currently in the process of fermenting our first Pilsner. It will be done in approximately 6 weeks.

    There wont be a lot of details on the Pilsner until its finished, but hopefully everything goes well!


  25. I'm a big fan of craft lagers. Let me know when you start distributing to Roseville!

    Haha will do. It may take awhile before our popularity stretches that far though, but well do our best!

  27. It's okay to become popular in two places at once :)
