“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.”
Whiskey Barrel Aged Coconut Porter
Whiskey Barrel Aged Coconut Porter weighs in at 4.7%. It’s hard to believe that a beer this small can pack such a punch. This is a very limited release.
Sneaky Peat Scottish Ale
Sneaky Peat Scottish Ale weighs in at 10% ABV and 26 IBUs. It is a very big, complex beer. It is very much malt forward. It doesn’t taste like it’s 10%. That’s why it’s sneaky. It also was brewed with beach smoked malt and peat smoked malt.
Down Goes Pilsner
Down Goes Pilsner weighs in at 5% ABV and 43 IBUs. This is our version of a Czech classic. It is dry hopped with loads of Czech Saaz hops.
East Portal Porter
East Portal Porter weighs in at 4.7% ABV and 38 IBUs. It is an easy drinking beer that can be enjoyed year round. We tweaked the “traditional” recipe a little by using some Cascade hops in it.
C4 Double IPA
C4 Double IPA weighs in at 8.5% ABV and 118 IBUs. It is a hop explosion. This Imperial IPA has almost 50 pounds of Columbus, Cascade, Centennial and Citra hops on it.
Golden Gloves Golden Ale weighs in at 5.5% ABV. It is a smooth Golden Pale Ale that everyone loves. A go to favorite in between drinking IPAs ands Stouts.
Uppercut IPA weighs in at 6.5% ABV and 70 IBUs. It is very fragrant IPA, loaded with Centennial hops. Most of the hops were late addition hops. We use a hopback to infuse even more hop aroma and flavor into it just before cooling it. After fermentation is complete, we dry hop it with even more hops.
Round One Pale Ale weighs in at 6.1% ABV and 54 IBUs. It is the first beer we brewed at Twelve Rounds. It is loaded with Galena and Cascade hops. One of our best sellers.
Knockout Stout weighs in at 5.4% ABV and 31 IBUs. This award winning Stout was made with freshly ground coffee from Entimos Coffee Co out of Roseville. After fermentation is complete, we dump in a bunch of cacao nibs. This Stout is served on Nitro to get a full mouthfeel and body. This is a staff favorite.
The Usual California Common weighs in at 5.4%. It is a Lager that is brewed at Ale temperatures. This is the beer you would have drank in the wild west and gold rush days.
Haymaker Hefeweizen weighs in at 4.7% ABV and 9.7 IBUs. It is a traditional Bavarian style Hefeweizen with hints of banana, clove and spices.
“Give me a woman who loves beer and I will conquer the world.”
Dan is co-owner and Brewer at Twelve Rounds Brewing. He has been brewing with a passion for over 20 years and has won many awards for his creations.
He has been pushing the envelope with special ingredients that create complex Ales and Lagers. His specialty is Barrel-Aged Beers.
Elle is co-owner and Business Manager at Twelve Rounds Brewing. She has put up with Dan’s obsession with brewing. Oops! I mean she is very supportive of Dan’s brewing.
While Elle is great with numbers, her one outlet of creativity is in the kitchen. She loves the challenge of creating great dishes with whatever ingredients are available.
Our passion for great brews and great food both began in the kitchen. Dan started brewing around 1990, using extracts. He took up the hobby in earnest which meant taking over the garage 5 years ago and transitioning to all-grain brewing. Both Dan and Elle love to cook and brewing days became a natural outlet for hosting all days BBQs with family and friends. The 5-gallon kettle over the kitchen stove grew to a half-barrel, propane-fueled brew rig. And the backyard gained a pellet-smoker alongside the Weber grill. That’s what we call going the distance with brewing and charcuterie!
With family and friends raving about our creation, it’s time to take it seriously. We entered the 2011 California State Fair and won three medals including first place for our Knock-Out Stout and second place for The Contender – our Pale Ale. The following year we won first place for our Scottish Ale which we plan on featuring as one of our seasonal brews.
In early 2012 we decided to pursue opening our own microbrewery. Our first challenge seemed almost insurmountable: finding a name! We hit trademark snags with our first three names and finally scored with Twelve Rounds.
