Product Details
California Common was an accidental discovery: residents of Gold Rush-era San Francisco wanted to drink Pilsner but local brewers had to make do with primitive refrigeration techniques. The result was a hybrid style – a highly hopped, pale lager fermented at ale temperatures, and possibly America's first original contribution to the beer world. Our version exhibits earthy hop bitterness and aroma, caramel malt, and a pale copper color with a clean, crisp profile.

True to Style
I am an all grain brewer and just brewed the California Common EXTRACT kit. Don't hate. Anyway, this is hands down the best beer I have brewed all year, 2013. I would not be surprised if this were to medal in competition. I consider it very true to style. Having said that, I do not plan to share this with anyone, except my closest friends and family. It is so good that I do not want to give up three bottles for a stupid competition. Great job guys.

What temperature is ideal for fermentation for this beer? The summer months are approaching and I may need some temperature control equipment.
Andrew B on May 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The intended fermentation temperature depends upon the yeast you choose to use with this brew. If using the Safale S-23 the optimum temperature is 50-57F. For the Wyeast 2112 California Lager yeast the optimum temperature is 58-68F
