The outside of Black Hammer Brewing

Lager without limits. 

What’s Black Hammer Brewing all about? Evolved traditional styles of beer. Small batch brewing. We are malty folks – we specialize in German lagers and English and Belgian ales.

Our beer may be true to tradition, but our environment is true to the Playa. Join us in our tasting room with a hand-colored copper bar, reclaimed wood, skylights, comfortable seating, and surrealist local paintings. Bring your dogs, your kids, and your outside food – we’ll take care of the rest.

Monday-Thursday: 11am – 11pm
Friday: 11am – 12am
Saturday: 12pm – 12am
Sunday: 12pm – 10pm

Holidays: We are open for all holidays except for Christmas, Thanksgiving, Memorial Day, Labor Day and Independence Day.

  • We will fill growlers of any beer we sell, period.  When we say lagers without limits, we mean it.
  • We’ll fill any clean, sealable and beer-worthy container that you provide, up to 5 gallons. Seriously. We beg you to test us on this.
  • Growler prices are $5 less than the listed pitcher prices, and if you purchase a BHB growler, you get an additional $5 off your first fill.
  • Not all beers are available in pitchers, due to the absurdly high alcohol content and some instances of impropriety – that’s why we can’t have nice things!  However, these beers are available in growlers, please ask you server for pricing details.

Want to be the first to know when we’re doing cool things? Then join the Black Hammer Army. We don’t fight, we just drink beer. We also don’t spam or give your information away.
