Our First Beer

Stout

On November 15, 1980, we started it all with 5 barrels of big, rich Stout.

The Details

We built our first brewhouse using recycled dairy equipment. We had to test our handywork, so we loaded it up with a heavy, dark Stout. That first batch was a 13-hour labor of love, and when we sipped the first bottle, we knew we had a keeper. With a nod to the West Coast, we balance Stout’s deep, roasted malt flavors with earthy, whole-cone hops.

From the Ground Up

Building a Brewhouse

In his 1957 Chevy-turned-flatbed, our founder Ken Grossman searched West Coast salvage yards and defunct dairies for tanks, pipes, and valves to convert into a brewery. Assembly was painstaking, including hand-drilling 4,000 holes in the bottom of the mash tun. Friends thought he was crazy, but Ken wouldn’t quit.

Stout Vs. Porter

In the 1700s, malt-driven porter was the beer of choice in the British Isles. Dial up the alcohol, and you got a “stout porter”—a strong porter, basically. In time, stout stood on its own and became a new playground for brewers.
