With five always-on-tap house brews including a wheat beer, a stout, an amber ale, a blonde ale and the award-winning Legend of Laguna IPA, there is something on tap at Peter B’s to please any palate. Also flowing: an ever-changing line-up of seasonal brews. We’ve seen brewer Kevin Clark team up with local players like Acme Coffee and Rancho Cielo to craft some bitchin’ brews in the past, and we know there will be more local collaboration in the future. Expansion is ahead as well; the upcoming delivery of a new fermenter will allow the brewery to boost production and, Clark says, explore bottling Peter B’s beer. A daily happy hour from 4–6:30pm makes that heady nugget all the more true.
