  • Our goal is to show the whole spectrum of beer, its history, and its evolution. To show beer its proper reverence, as not only “The people’s beverage”, but one that pairs as well with food as wine, and when it’s skillfully crafted and not over hopped to hide the flaws in production, it does.

  • The truth is, it takes more skill to make a delicate lager, than a double IPA. You would be hard pressed to find anyone more passionate and knowledgeable about beer than Art and the Watterson brothers. We look forward to sharing our love of beer and food with you. After all, it takes great beer to wash down great food!

Our Grain

We are one of the only breweries in the country who use Pilsner Malt as our base malt.  It’s an investment but we believe it delivers a more delicate flavor profile than a base 2-row or pale malt, which are more commonly used.

Our Hops

After trying multiple options from several suppliers, we decided on a small family hop farm in Sonoma Valley. In our opinion, their certified organic hops are some of the best in the country.

Our Water

We are proud to use Sierra Mountain Spring water, from our own artisan lake located 285 feet below our historic icehouse.
