Full Sail


As an independent and employee owned brewery, you know that we put our hearts and souls into every drop. With Brewer’s Share we’re proud to showcase the people behind our award winning brews by introducing our individual brewers by name and beer.


In 2008 we created our small batch Brewer’s Share series as an opportunity for each of our individual brewers to express their creations to be shared on tap exclusively in our pub. Since our crew came up with so many great beers, we decided to share a selection of them with beer lovers everywhere.


Our Brewer’s Share small batch offerings will be available in 22oz. bottles and on draft. The beers in our 2012 line-up include Extra Special Barney, Phil’s Existential Alt, Chris’s Summer Delight Berliner Weiss and Big Daddy J’s Malt Liquor. With each Brewer’s Share series beer each brewer picks a local charity or organization to receive a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the beer. We will release one Brewer’s Share at a time and a new beer will be released for each season.




Now Serving: Big Daddy J's Malt Liquor

The fourth beer in the series "Big Daddy J's" developed by Assistant Brewing Supervisor, Jason Muñoz will be released in 22oz. bottles and on draft in August.


As a daddy and a recent graduate of Oregon State University’s Brewing Sciences program, Jason celebrates his inner college student and his new station in life with Big Daddy J. According to Jason, BDJ is a malt liquor that is simple and delicious. It’s golden in color and hopped with Hallertau Hersbrucker hops, perfectly balanced so that it's clean and drinkable smoothness makes that 8% alcohol go down so easily. IBU 28


The inspiration for the name “Brewer’s Share” came from that mysterious portion that vanishes from a barrel during aging that brewers refer to as the “angel’s share,” and that led to “Brewer’s Share,” an equally mysterious offering that appears during inspiration. Brewer’s Share can also mean a unit of ownership, as in stock. Consider this program to be an Initial Pub Offering (IPO). Whenever you purchase a Brewer’s Share you get a unit of ownership – one share of the batch. As a shareholder you have the right to consume the beverage. In doing so you will also be investing in the public good – as each brewer not only chooses the recipe, they choose a local charity or organization that will benefit from each bottle sold – Which can bring an excellent return on ingestion (ROI). 

With each Brewer’s Share series beer, Full Sail picks a local charity or organization to receive a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the beer. Jason has chosen to support Helping Hands Against Violence who is dedicated to serving victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking by focusing attention on said issues through education and outreach.
