    can change the soup or the Pasta to try it all.

  • Craft Beer

     

  • Giannini presents 13 Craft Beers on Tap

    GBG our Signature Pilsner

    Made with two-row malted barley, European Saaz hops, pure artesian spring water and a proprietary strain of yeast. This

    lager is a crisp golden beer that appeals to drinkers of all types.  Brewed in the American style, but with a fulliness missing

    from the mass-produced beers. A great balance of malts and hops gives this beer a gentle drinkability.

    Blonde Ale by Mission Brewery

    Our Blonde Ale is a crisp and refreshing golden ale.  Modeled after the kolshch-style ales from Cologne, Germany.  It has a

    clean lager-like character, and a smooth balanced bitterness.

    The kolsch yeast strain provides a subtle fruitiness, which compliments the Liberty and Hallertau hops used for flavor and

    aroma.

    Drifter by Widmer Bros

    American Pale Ale brewed with generous amounts of Summit hops, it has a unique citrus character,

    Smooth drink ability, and distinctive hop character.  The bittering hops are perceptible enough to give the beer a crisp, clean,

    quenching finish, yet soft enough to keep the beer by Michelob smooth and balanced.

    Shock Top

    Shock Top is an unfiltered Belgian-style wheat ale (also known as a “White” or “Wit” beer due to its appearance) that is

    naturally cloudy with a billowy white foam head, light golden hue and slight taste of orange peel and coriander.

    Hop Ottin’ IPA by Anderson Valley Brewing

    Hop Ottin is Boontling for “hardworking hops” and they’re surely hard at work in this brew.  Hop Ottin starts with a strong

    floral aroma, which winds into a deep and complex body.  In an intriguing balance, honey-drenched malts coat rich hop

    undertones.  The hops prevail with a satisfyingly crisp finish.

    Haywire Hefewiezen by Pyramid Brewing

    This American-Style Hefeweizen (wheat beer) is an award-winning take on this Bavarian classic.

    This refreshingly unfiltered wheat ale delivers a distinctively smooth and refreshing flavor.

    Boulevard Red by Indian Wells

    A smooth red lager without the bite, using four types of specialty-malted barley and two types of hops with a proprietary strain

    of lager yeast.  Boulevard Red is lagered for several weeks, then finished to exacting standards.

    Fat Tire Amber Ale By New Belgium Brewing

    A Belgian-style ale with a terrific sense of balance, and toasty, biscuit-like malt flavors coasting in equilibrium with hoppy

    freshness.

    Firestone Double Barrel Ale by  Firestone Brewing

    An English style pale ale with a mild blend of vanilla and toasted oak flavor touched with a hint of English noble hops.

    Newcastle Brown Ale by Scottish and Newcastle UK

    Lobotomy Bock by Indian Wells

    A classic German Dopple Bock, I n strict accordance to the German Reinheitsgebot Purity Law of Brewing, which is water,

    malt, hops and yeast only!  Using five types of specialty-malted barley including Munich, and other premium malts its finished

    with Sterling and Perle hops.

    Stock Porter by Telegraph Brewing

    A traditional porter that reveals spicy, vanilla, and chocolate aromas married to a fruity, refreshing acidity.

    “”Stock Porter” was the moniker 19

    th

    century pub keepers gave to the more expensive Porter that had been aged in their beer

    cellars, as opposed to “Mild Porter”

    Pipeline Porter by Kona Brewing

    A season winter beer, it’s is a coffee porter brewed by Kona Brewing.  Smooth and dark with a distinctive roasty aroma and

    earthy complexity it’s fermented with freshly roasted 100% Kona coffee grown on Hawaii’s Big Island, lending a unique

    roasted aroma and flavor.  A delicate blend of it’s fermented with freshly roasted aroma and flavor. A delicate blend of hops

    rounds out this palate-pleasing brew
