Hess Jucundus Wheat Beer Brewed with Honey and Orange Peel
Hailing from San Diego, Hess Brewing started out as a nano-brewer and has made the jump to larger-scale production. We all benefit from beers like Jucundus, an ultra-refreshing 6% ABV beer. The palate is dry and the flavor is clean—you’re not going to get sweetness or fruitiness out of this beer—and that means it goes with almost any salty, savory or spicy foods. Alpine Market is selling this beer for $1.99/16 oz. can. Cheers!

Originally named Gordon this double red IPA is the beer that gently ushered me in to the world of hops. a fantastically complex aroma combined with a rich malt backbone makes it enjoyable for hop heads and New beer lovers alike.
Augustiner Bräu Edelstoff
This Helles Lager style beer brewed in Munich Germany can be difficult to find in the United States, but not at Alpine Bottle Shop in Torrance. It is a slightly sweet and sparkly lager beer that tastes great on a warm summer day and especially when paired with a German hot dog or bratwurst.
