Pale Ale

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.

Our Story

1970s

Mountain Inspired

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.

Bigger Than Beer

Mindset

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.
