Fri., May 3: 10th Anniversary Beer Garden Party @ Monterey Brewery & Grill (426 Alvarado Street, Monterey)

Alvarado Street kicks off the festivities with a 10th Anniversary Beer Garden Party at their original downtown Monterey Brewery & Grill (4pm – 8pm). Be among the first to taste through their 10th Anniversary beer collaborations as well as experience a tasty double version (8.2% ABV) of their first-ever brewed IPA at the brewpub, named Minesweeper. Tons of guest taps will be on hand featuring beers from the various collaborating breweries, including a draught-only Double Hazy IPA with Monkish. Also, enjoy items from their stellar food menu, including the brand-new 10” Cheesy ‘Frico’ Thin-Crusted Bar Pies in four styles: Old Town, Calabrese & Pineapple, Salchicha Macha, and Garden.

Sat., May 4: Kölsch Service @ Carmel Brewery & Bistro (Carmel Plaza, Suite 112, Carmel-by-the-Sea)

Alvarado Street hosts an early-20th Century Köln (Germany) tradition Kölsch Service for the first time at their Carmel Brewery & Bistro (11:30am-8pm). Revelers will indulge in the delightfulness of extremely fresh beer in .2L stangen (glasses) while köbes (servers) return with another stange of Kölsch once your glass is empty. No need to ask for another beer as köbes are on the lookout for empties while adding a notch to your deckle (coaster) to calculate how many stangen you’ve enjoyed. Once you’re done lagering, simply put the deckle atop your glass and you’ll be closed out for the day. Make sure to dive into German-inspired food specials while enjoying the company of your friends and family.

Sun., May 5: Cinco de Mayo @ Alvarado On Main (301 Main Street, Salinas)

For Cinco de Mayo, imbibe with an Alvarado “Main Street Michelada” (pictured to the right) while vibin’ out to tracks spun by a live DJ on the new Mezzanine (12pm-5pm). Check out crafts by local vendors (12pm-4pm), enjoy food specials such as Concha Bread Pudding, Verde Tacos, and Pastor Nachos, and play Lotería (5pm-8pm) to benefit CASA of Monterey County (Court Appointed Special Advocates For Children) at Alvarado On Main.

A limited number of custom glasses will be available for purchase at each 10th Anniversary event at the various Alvarado Street locations.

Alvarado Street Brewery – 10th Anniversary Collaboration Beers:

Renowned for their eye-catching beer labels over the past decade, Alvarado Street commemorates the eclectic aesthetics that have defined their cans with The Art Styles of Alvarado Street showcased across the 10th Anniversary collaboration beers. Styles range from Typography, Retrowave, Nostalgia, Cars, Swiss Modern, and Culinary. Check out the beers below:

DDH To Taste (DDH Hazy Double IPA, 9% ABV) – Alvarado Street + Burial + Other Half + Trillium

(The Art Styles of Alvarado StreetTypography)


EAST COAST SKAZE Sickest of the sick (haze), the East Coast rules this style. And as such we’ve reached out to the pioneering legends at Other Half, Trillium and Burial to bring you a truly pulpy, lupulin saturated juice bomb that’s a nod to the Northeast style. Combining a GIANT coolpool of Simcoe hops, we layer in multiple dry hop stages of hand selected Citra, Riwaka & Chinook to bring it home. Double Dry Hopped. To Taste. This is the way. To 10 more years of DDH!


Retro Resin (West Coast IPA, 7% ABV) – Alvarado Street + Altamont + Burgeon + North Park + Shred + Urban Roots

(The Art Styles of Alvarado StreetRetrowave)


WEST COAST OIL – Pale, brilliant, dry, bitter. We live for West Coast hoppy beer in all forms. We’ve banded with some of the state’s most prolific hop specialists to bring you this supremely dank, oily beast of West Coast nectar. Featuring experimental HBC 735, CTZ, Simcoe, Mosaic Cryo & Chinook hops, a combo we’ve found to tick all the boxes: old school pine & resin, grapefruit oil & punchy tropical fruit. To 10 years of BURP HOPS!

Nostalgic Face Swap (Pale Ale, 5.5% ABV) – Alvarado Street + Cellarmaker + Cloudburst + Faction + Pinthouse

(The Art Styles of Alvarado StreetNostalgia)


MORE PALE ALE PLZ – For the breweries we’ve worked with on this beer, there are two quasi-obsessions: Pale Ale & Simcoe. We all adore these two things, and it would be egregious to not brew a collaborative Pale Ale dominated with three different lots of Simcoe T90 pellets, Simcoe ‘301’ fresh hop cryo, and Simcoe 702 hop extract. The twist: a lil’ bit of exemplary HBC 586 hops to compliment said Simcoe. So there you have it, an easy drinking Simcoe heavy Pale Ale to celebrate 10 years of BURP HOPS!


Dream Ridez (West Coast Pilsner, 5.2% ABV) – Alvarado Street + Firestone Walker + Highland Park + Humble Sea

(The Art Styles of Alvarado StreetCars)


FOR THE LOVE OF PILS…IN ALL FORMS! – Malty, hoppy, neutral – we’ll take it. Any type of Pils and we’re in. And it helps to have some good friends that make the best lagers in the world! So we employed their careful advice and guidance to a current trend: West Coast Pils. A blend of California grown Admiral Maltings pilsner and traditional two-row malts, along with a bit of rice to keep the color extra light, we then layered a blend of old & new world hop varieties: Spalt Select, Mosaic, and McKenzie.


Spotlight Effect (Saison, 6% ABV) – Alvarado Street + Monkish + Sante Adairius + Yeast Of Eden

(The Art Styles of Alvarado StreetSwiss Modern)


SELF–INDULGENT SAISON – Built from a grist of California grown barley, wheat, spelt, and oats, and layered with a blend of old world hops, this snappy saison is an ode to our stateside friends and the Belgian originators. Crisp and thirst quenching, yet robust in flavor, this beer is a ready refresher for spring and the coming summer.


Cheeky Torch (Jungle Bird-Inspired Hard Seltzer, 12.5% ABV) – Alvarado Street + Green Cheek

(The Art Styles of Alvarado StreetCulinary)

THE PARTY STARTER! – Hey Pallys™!!! It’s Cheeky the party-loving conure from Green Cheek here! Now some might call me ‘seltz centered’… so I wanted Alvarado Street to make one of my epic cocktail inspired seltzers based on one of our favorites, the Jungle Bird! It’s got pineapple, fresh lime, lots of bitter orange peel and a few other ‘secret’ ingredients. It’s super refreshing and totallllly satisfies that Tiki craving! We hope you love it!
