Heavy on hops, that was always the brewery plan. So in 1980, we loaded Pale Ale up with Cascade—a new hop at the time named after the mountain range—and the intense aromas of pine and citrus sparked the American craft beer revolution. Dive Deeper
Ken Grossman Founder & Owner
Ken Grossman ditched the city whenever he could. Going off-grid, that’s where he found thrills and life’s answers. Climbing in the Sierra Nevada mountains, Ken’s bold idea took shape: build a brewery. Naming it would be easy. Take Me Back
Bigger Than Beer
The goal was simple when we started: make incredible beer. But there’s more at stake, so we brew and do business like the planet’s future depends on it, because it does. Play Video
Our breweries are craft beer getaways: artisan food, live music, brewhouse tours, outdoor lounging. And since beer’s better with friends, who’s coming with you?
Beneath our towering copper kettles are the roots of American craft beer. This is where flavor turned a corner and never looked back. If you smell hops, you’re close.
Mixed in with Fourth Street’s busy shops, the Torpedo Room is our neighborhood hangout that brings our brewery spirit to the San Francisco Bay Area.
Our East Coast location is a jaw-dropping retreat off the beaten path. The half-mile driveway carves through forest to reveal our hidden home—part brewery, part park.
