Our original tagline was “it’s what we drink around here,” and ever since we have taken pride in producing fresh, locally brewed beer for our neighbors and community. In fact, the majority of our beer is still consumed right here on the Central Coast.

Latest Local Happenings

• Paso Robles becomes the center of the craft beer universe on June 4 as we host the Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest with more than 50 craft breweries from around the world. Net proceeds benefit Paso Robles Pioneer Day.
• STiVo, our collaboration pilsner brewed with Russian River Brewing Company to commemorate the fest, will be available at our Paso Robles brewery and select draft accounts across the Central Coast for a limited time starting on June 5.
• We are set to break ground on our brewhouse expansion, necessitating the closure of our visitor center at the front of the existing brewhouse. No worries, though—you can still sample beer and purchase gear at our new emporium just a block away at 1649 Ramada Drive. And, of course, the Taproom restaurant remains open daily.

• We celebrate our 20th anniversary on the Central Coast in 2016. Stay tuned for some local anniversary festivities later in the year.

Recent and ongoing donation recipients include Paso Robles Concerts in The Park, Paso Robles Pioneer Day, Paderewski Festival, Woods Humane Society and many others. Unfortunately, due to the sheer volume of donation requests, we cannot fulfill all of them. However, we give each request full consideration. To make a donation request, click here.


While we participate in happenings around the nation, our signature events are rooted right here on the Central Coast.
