New Arrivals: Alvarado Street
New Alvarado Street Brewery cans are here!
A few weeks ago our buds from Pure Project came up to crank out some juice we’ve lovingly coined Murkaholics. This Double IPA was brewed with Citra hops (and lupulin powder) along with mega dank Riwaka hops from New Zealand, one of our absolute favorites at the moment. We learned an important lesson: whenever you collaborate with your friends, try to hide your hardest to source, most prized hops. They will want to use almost all you have.
Minesweeper was our first ever brewed IPA and remains a local favorite at our Monterey Brewpub. With Juicy Sweeper we've taken the same beer and employed an expressive yeast to bring bright tropical & stone fruit notes along with the usual heavy handed dose of Simcoe & Citra.
MAI TAI P.A.
Three time GABF medal winner, including gold in 2018! Our drier, decidedly “tropical” IPA that’s light on bitterness, but heavy on hop aroma, courtesy of 100% Mosaic hops. One whiff and you get super intense notes of passion fruit, mango, and lychee. Grain bill of just American two-row malt and a clean fermentation keep it simple and allow these hops to shine.
STRAWBERRY BANANA DAIQUIRI
Holy heck! Strawberry Banana Daiquiri Island?!?! Yes please. Our “smoothiest” of this series drops today. This kettle sour ale is brewed with milk sugar and thousands of pounds of banana and strawberry purée (and a hint of lime, for good measure).
We are committed first and foremost to quality. Food and beer is what we're most passionate about, and this drives us to put everything we have into creating a memorable dining and beer drinking experience. As a family owned and operated business, we are extremely proud to be a part of the Monterey Peninsula community and will continually strive to provide exceptional service and make everyone, locals and visitors alike, feel at home and part of the ASB family.
The building that now houses the Brewery & Grill was initially constructed in 1916 for the Monterey Elks Club that occupied the upper levels, with the Strand Theater and two retail stores on the ground floor. The Elks outgrew the location in 1964 and the upper floors were used by the Monterey Chess Club until 2003. The ground floor theater operation continued from 1916 as the Regency, Rio, and again the Regency Theater until 2005. The building was purchased by the Hill family in 2013 and underwent a significant conversion into upper level apartments and the Alvarado Street Brewery & Grill on the ground floor which opened in May 2014. The building has been designated as historically significant as representative of the Beaux Arts commercial architecture of the early twentieth century. It is also presumed to be the work of notable California architect, William H. Weeks.
