Hidden Star Orchards' hard apple cider is a true farmstead cider. Following a craft that dates back to the turn of the century, their cider is naturally fermented, bottle conditioned and water bathed. This produces an authentic effervescence with true apple flavor.

San francisco, CA

Palmia is not just a summer brew. It’s a light beer made by people who understand that having a good time isn’t seasonal and, most importantly, should never be bland. Palmia enters the market poised to take you in flip flops or high heels to the center of the party…because it’s all about attitude!


Promise Land



People's Choice Best Brew

Who will have the Best Brew at the 2019 Burger & Brew Fest?


The 2018 Winner!

Palmia, lemon infused lager

Palmia is much more than a refreshing, naturally lemon-infused beer. It is our 90 calorie love letter to good taste. Inspired by adventures on the coast of Spain, our dream was to bring a new choice to the light beer market, a lager that has superior flavor & offers a long overdue alternative to all the other watered-down beer brands. Whether you find yourself relaxing at the beach or just spending time with friends after work, Palmia wants your time & your beer to be of the highest quality..

Safety Reminders

it's important to us that everyone who attended the burger & Brew Fest Drinks responsibly.

so, we showed our support for responsible drinking, with these offers at the 2018 fest...
