American IPA with a Japanese kick

A celebration of the greatest drum machine of all time.

Brewed in collaboration with our friends at Origin Workshop, Devilcraft, and Mondo Brewing Company


This special collaboration beer honors the enduring sounds and cultural legacy of the TR-808 and the seismic shift it created in music. It’s a taste of the future, a brew defined by the legendary kick drum of the 808. Its been developed to recreate that deep sub-bass low end, delivering a solid Japanese kick that resonates through the American IPA flavours.

With tropical, citrus aromas, mikan orange peel and flavours from the generous rise of Citra and Amarillo hops the Origin Workshop BR-808 provides a refined taste. In the spirit of true collaboration, the brewers added no caramel malt with only light British pale malt and Cara pils, resulting in a refreshing brew.

7.0% ABV

This epic tribute drops on 08/08/18 for a limited time only. Learn more about BR-808.

A Mutually Satisfying India Pale Ale


Hop. Yeah. Ing. Yeah. Beer. Yeah! Melvin Brewing in Alpine, WY and Alpine Brewing in Alpine, CA join forces to bring you this mutually satisfying IPA. We worked with hop farmers in Yakima to get the freshest pelletized hops possible, and then used a grip of them. One could say this beer is “most dank.”

Experimental J-Hole

Red India Pale Ale

This brewmance began with a mutual respect for the lupulin arts, refined in Melvin’s brew temple high in the Tetons of Jackson Hole, WY. Reunited at sea level, we form like Voltron to bring you this Red IPA. An avalanche of hops swarms the palate with malts soft as powder balancing out this spectacular, oracular brew.

TGR Pils-Gnar


This newest collaboration in our lineup will have you sessioning brews like you session laps off the tram…the TGR Pils-gnar is inspired by, and built for, those who shred the gnar. Light and crisp with a medium-light body that says, I’m a local brah, TGR Pils-gnar uses slightly sweet malt under a canopy of bright, tangy, flowery hops to achieve an aroma that’s spicy and fruity at the same time.

Pils-gnar has a balanced finish that just begs another quaff…in the lot, on the chair, in the brewery, on the porch couch that should probably be burned at the end of the season. Light and sessionable…it’s Pils-gnarly bro!

3-Way IPA

India Pale Ale

Pale in appearance, balanced juicy body, superb lacing, and packed with every citrus fruit aroma you can imagine, the 2016 edition of 3-Way IPA was an unfiltered Fort George Brewery & Public House collaboration with Barley Brown’s Beer and Melvin Brewing.

Three Headed Hop Monster

Imperial India Pale Ale

Melvin took part in a superstar triple-header multi-year interstate brewing collaboration. We partnered with our pals at Barley Brown’s and Boneyard to create an Imperial IPA chock-full of hoppy aroma & bitterness that you’ve come to love from the three of us. In 2015 we brewed at Barley Brown’s. In 2017 we brewed at Boneyard, and in 2019 we’ll be brewing up a batch at Melvin’s Alpine brewery.


Space Ghost

Golden Session Barleywine

Brewed in conjunction with Ecliptic Brewing. An unclassifiable phantasm, Space Ghost explodes with a panopoly of Citra, Mosaic, Galaxy,Southern Cross tropical hop flavors with a taste not unlike Melvin’s famous imperial IPAs. Complex yet infinitely drinkable, Space Ghost defies all explanations.

Stud Muffin

India Pale Ale

Brewed with Faction Brewing for San Francisco Beer Week 2017, Stud Muffin is an IPA with Citra Hop Hash and Mosaic Lupulin Powder.


Conflict of Interest

Imperial Pilsner

Conflict of Interest — A fun, beefed up Pilsner recipe that Melvin and DC Brau came together to create. An all German malt base produces a light to medium body with flavors of baked bread and crust that play beautifully with the clean German lager yeast that was fermented cool to preserve those lager characteristics that we all have come to love. Hallertau Tradition and Saphir hops dance together to create pleasant herbal and woody notes that yield to fresh ground tea leaf with faint hints of rose and a clean finish.


Belgian Strong Ale

1997 – The First Twenty is a Belgian-style Strong Ale that is dry hopped with Citra Hops. The beer is described as offering bold and complex fruity aromas, ranging from tropical fruit, citrus, dried cherry, rose, and prunes. Candied fruit and baked bread flavors that bring forth a deceptively smooth and drinkable beer.

Brewed in conjunction with Royale Brewing Company & The Commons Brewery.
