We craft brews that embody the Crooked Hammock spirit. Our brewers’ approach is to create approachable and refreshing flavors at a consistently high level of excellence. Most of our beers are sessionable and are best enjoyed in the great outdoors with seasonal and occasional “one-offs” that are push the boundaries of our unique palette.

Our Beers

Haulin’ Oats

What better way can you make your mustache’s dreams come true than by filling it with a creamy, satisfying stout? This dark roasted brew is heavy in body and color but light in its mouthfeel, thanks to being brewed with rolled oats and lactose, which gives it an underlying sweetness. Notes: Creamy mouthfeel, roasted malts, brewed with oatmeal.

Wai Ola

Wai Ola, meaning “water of life” in Hawaiian, was precisely the vibe Head Brewer, Chris Wood was aiming to capture in developing this light, California style ale. This beer was meant to be easy drinking but packs tons of summer flavor, thanks to additions of not just coconut water, but roasted coconut flakes in multiple stages of the brewing process. Mahalo! Notes: pale ale, subtle coconut, hints of tropical and pine hops, strong coconut aroma.

Shoobie

Shoobies were city folks who journeyed to the beach by train in the late 1800’s. Their ticket included a shoe box lunch, hence the name. Since then the term is now a pet name for tourists who feed seagulls, wear socks with flip flops or just seem generally confused by the seashore. So sad. So cute. We love us some shoobies. Notes: Blonde ale, pale gold, slightly floral, easy drinking.
