Early in 2014, in the midst of a craft beer boom, Riip Beer Company arose from humble homebrew origins. By obtaining a small business license, those origins developed into a delivery service in their old school Helms coach. After winning over the community with their delicious recipes, they established a loyal local fan base. Eager to make their beer available for all, they opened their Huntington Beach Taproom one year later.
After winning awards for their Dankly Delicious and cleverly named “DAN-K”, an American IPA, they set a pace that would bring customers in search of the next elixirs Riip would rip out. RBC has an evolving tap list that will whet the palate of your most dedicated IPA lover, with beers like Mrs. Dankerson (6.6% strong pale ale), Napalm in the morning (6.8% IPA), Last one standing (4.7% session IPA) and B.I.L.F (6.4% Hazy IPA). Contrary to their IPA direction, Riip has released Jetty Water an easy drinking blonde and Sugar Shack an 8.4% Breakfast stout available on nitro and CO2.
Starting the year with an expansion to accommodate their brand new 10 Barrel-brewing system made by SS brewtech and acquiring a new head brewer Derek Testerman, Riip’s vision for creating great craft beer is progressing beautifully. Mastering recipes on the new system and fine-tuning with digital programs, RBC’s head brewer is hitting the road running. After successfully selling beer via growlers, crowlers and recently bottling Dan-K and Raider Bob, Riip will be introducing a new canning line and diversifying their tap list.
