Brian & Lisa Ford opened Auburn Alehouse Brewery & Restaurat in 2007 in the iconic Shanghai Restaurant, embracing the building's character and colorful history in the heart of Historic Auburn.

Fool's Gold Ale
Auburn Alehouse Brewery and Restaurant  ·  Auburn, CA
Don't let looks deceive you; this unassuming American Strong Ale packs a punch! Light in color and full bodied due to our brewers adding foolish amounts of pale malted barley and buckets of Pacific Northwest hops. Fool's Gold starts almost honey sweet and finishes quite dry, with an impressive balance that is neither overly hoppy or sweet.

The subtle up front biscuit malt flavor balances well with the delicate hops that contribute to this beer's dry, snappy finish.

Gold Digger IPA
Auburn Alehouse Brewery and Restaurant  ·  Auburn, CA
Here's a nugget that James Marshall missed! Pale and crystal malts provide the backbone and golden hue, while Summit, Simcoe and Chinook hops do the dancing on your tongue. Late hop additions to the kettle and dry hopping in the fermenter give our India Pale Ale both hop aroma and flavor worth digg'n for!

Auburn Alehouse Brewery and Restaurant  ·  Auburn, CA
True to style, our Irish Stout has a lighter body but more roasted barley flavor. The color is a beautiful deep ruby/mahogany hue with an off white creamy head. Hops are on the upper end of the style but push the roasted profile forward. We use English grown Challenger and East Kent Golding hops which are noted for their earthy/spicy aroma. Nitrogenation is employed for a smooth creamy experience!

Lil' Digger IPA
Auburn Alehouse Brewery and Restaurant  ·  Auburn, CA
Our interpretation of a California "session " IPA, Lil' Digger has all the hop punch of its big brother, but with less alcohol.

Mcford’s Irish Red Ale
Auburn Alehouse Brewery and Restaurant  ·  Auburn, CA
McFord's Irish Red Ale was inspired by a recent trip to Ireland. The Fords tasted their way through the Emerald Isle picking apart the flavors and nuances of traditional Reds and Stouts that have been brewed there for centuries. McFord's IRA is ruby red and showcases a fine malt body with a slight mineral presence. A steady hand of traditional hops just balances the sweetness out and are present in the background.

Old Prospector
Auburn Alehouse Brewery and Restaurant  ·  Auburn, CA
Dark and complex, this strong ale was brewed to wine strength using copious amounts of malt and hops. Aging for several months has mellowed this "old prospector" into a smooth and rich ale, perfect for sipping on a cold winter's night.

PU240 Imperial IPA
Auburn Alehouse Brewery and Restaurant  ·  Auburn, CA
Named after the isotope essential for nuclear grade weapons, this "Weapons Grade Ale" is the hop bomb you didn't see coming! At 100 bettering units, PU240 captures the explosive hop flavor and aroma necessary to achieve a critical mass that you won't find in other high-hop ales. A classified and combustible amount of Summit and Galena hops along with a double dry-hop bombardment of Simcoe, Amarillo and Centennial contribute to PU240's high rate of hop fusion.

Village Idiot
Auburn Alehouse Brewery and Restaurant  ·  Auburn, CA
We brewed a stronger version of our already strong Pale Ale, Fool’s Gold, and aged it in 4 Roses Whiskey barrels for five months. The result is a straw-colored Ale with aromas of whiskey and oak. This heavy-hitter has a surprisingly smooth malty finish. At 9.8% ABV, a few glasses of this and you’ll be…. well the name says it all!

ZZ Hop
Auburn Alehouse Brewery and Restaurant  ·  Auburn, CA
Triple the hop iSOBERization from three different forms of Chinook, Centennial and Amarillo hops. An intense floral and piney aroma with an explosion of hop flavor quickly turns to sharp bitterness followed by a brief encounter with malted barley. One sip will make your tongue feel like a hop oil spill has occurred just past your lips.
