We are happy to be hosting monthly rides, with the help of many of our loyal patrons and hope to be doing more mountain bike related activities in the future. Cismontane is gearing up to be THE mountain bike headquarters in Orange County. We have some great events lined up, so keep your eyes peeled and we look forward to seeing you on the trails!

We are proud to be so hands on with the creation of our beers, but it is nice to have some automated peace of mind. With the summer months approaching our brewers couldn’t be more grateful for the added amenities and capacity, sure we could have done without the transformer and pump failures, but we’re happy to have everything up and running! The last two weeks have been a blur of organizing, bottling and brew days. Months of setbacks and sweat equity are finally going to pay off. Get ready world...we are coming at you with everything we’ve got

It’s been a hell of a couple of weeks at the brewery. We got the green light to start building our new space and walls started coming down, equipment got on trucks and the jackhammers started pounding away. The whole Cismontane extended family has been chipping in and we have made progress. If we keep up this pace we will be finished in a few of weeks… maybe. Either way, we won’t rest until the project is done and the beer is flowing again.
Because I know everyone is interested in the stats:
- 1591 sqft (395 tasting room, 1,196 brewery)
- 75 barrels of fermentation
- 60 barrels of storage
- Production was about 600 barrels last year
- 3,187 sqft (530 tasting room, 2,657 brewery)
- 105 barrels of fermentation
- 90 barrels of maturation / lagering
- 60 barrels of storage
- We are hoping to do about 1500 barrels next year (A whopping 0.6% of Stones Annual Production for 2011!)

We have been painting our kegs for some time now. Only a few have noticed. Those that have are generally the folks that handle the kegs at the fine establishments that pour our beers. With the addition of 27 more ½ barrels it was time to crank out a few more Cismontane original works.
The process is simple: Paper off the top and bottom, place a stencil in the gap, name and sign with a permanent pen.Enjoy…

We have become so far removed from the items that we use on a daily basis I can't tell you where what I own comes from; where my shirt was made, beer glass made, my broccoli grown, my beer brewed.
Ingredients: Salvaged Wild Fire Wood, Varnish, Steel Bolt, Brass Plate, Hands.
Please enjoy our latest handle creation along with our latest beers.
