GUNWHALE ALES


CHEERS, WE'RE GLAD YOU ARE HERE

ORANGE COUNTY"S NEWEST CRAFT BREWERY IN COSTA MESA, CALIFORNIA

Gunwhale Ales strike a balance between the raw, wild spirit of farmhouse brewing, and the pioneering hop forward styles of California. We have an obsession with yeast driven Saisons, hoppy IPAs, and other rustic, wild and sour beers. This gives our beers uncommon qualities that are both surprisingly delicate and nuanced, yet refined and robust in their simplicity. From bright, billowy summer ales to rustic, fortifying stormers that stand up to the rougher seas, Gunwhale makes beers that reflect the culinary and cultural heritage of the West Coast.

The following are the beers we plan to offer throughout the year.  We will be brewing seasonal beers as well, always keeping things new in the tasting room. Expect to see a ton more Saisons, a style that was brewed as provision for farm workers due to its quenching low gravity and high drinkability.  Please also check back to see about releases of new beers, including wild fermentations and those from our barrel-aged and sour beer program.  We think you will find our beer to be - Damn Handsome - (in the traditional sense : easy to handle, vital, trustworthy, and always in good proportion).
