C-Hag

India Pale Ale

6.4% ABV, 47 IBU

This is the flagship IPA at Red Tandem Brewery; many patrons report that they are simply unable to enjoy lesser IPAs after enjoying a pint of Sea Hag.  This IPA is named for its hops bill, which includes most every commercially available hop that starts with the letter 'C', plus Warrior and Amarillo hops. 5 total hop additions throughout the brewing and fermenting processes give rise to her wonderful  balanced complexity.

Double C-Hag

Imperial IPA

10.0% ABV, 74 IBU
WINNER OF #1 IPA AWARD AT SURF N SUDS CARPINTERIA 2017!

This is a serious 10% beer which achieves excellent balance with it's intense hops load.  This beer was partially inspired by potential patrons who telephone us at the brewery and ask "What's the highest alcohol beer you have on tap?"  We now say, "Double Sea Hag, she's a perfect ten."   Like her little sister, Double Sea Hag is named for her hops bill, which includes most every commercially available hop that starts with the letter 'C', plus Warrior and Amarillo hops.  Five total hop additions throughout the brewing and fermenting processes make this an intense yet sophisticated beer.  This beer has been a surprise hit with many wine drinkers who normally do not drink beer.

The Taco Incident

American Amber Ale

5.4% ABV, 31 IBU

This beer is an easy drinking yet bold American Amber Ale.
Enjoy the crisp dry finish on this ale, backed up by just the right
amount of Nugget and Tettnang hops to please your palet.

Oatmeal Stout

Oatmeal Stout

5.2% ABV, 29 IBU

This beer showcases a complex mix of nine unique grain types with Nugget and Cascade hops.  Recommended for enjoyment from a Nitro tap, the thick, dense head is reminiscent of Old World stouts, but one sip will tell you this beer is an all-modern interpretation of the style.

Tandem Belgian Dubbel

Belgian

8.0% ABV, 23 IBU

We're honestly surprised that more breweries don't brew Belgians.   Maybe it's because this style of beer requires extensive aging time to reach perfection.  Regardless, we hope you'll enjoy our Dubbel, made smooth and eminently drinkable by virtue of it's Styian Goldings, Hallertau and German Tettnang hops.

Island Fox

Red Ale

5.2% ABV, 22 IBU

The fans of this beer will tell you that we've hit a home run with this red ale.  But don't just take their word for it. Warrior and Nugget hops.

Brown Eyed Girl

Northern English Style Brown Ale

4.7% ABV, 24 IBU

We pay hommage to a classic brown ale style by using an expensive grain bill of Special Roast Malt, Victory Malt, Chocolate Malt, and Maris Otter, hopping it with Goldings hops and of course a style-appropriate London Ale Yeast.

Beach Blonde

Blonde Ale

5.3% ABV, 23 IBU

This is our easy-drinking blonde ale, equally appropriate for a warm day at the beach or a cool winter day at home. Fill your growler for an excursion to wherever you plan on going.
