Belching Beaver

Belching Beaver does not brew good beer. We brew truly great beer. Currently, we are crafting 7 distinct beers that range from pale ale to stout, which are sure to please anyone’s tastes. Our first priority is using quality ingredients to create the beer recipes at our microbrewery. When we decided to move forward with the brewery, we told Troy not to worry about how much money we were spending on ingredients. With a name like Belching Beaver, we better have great beer or we would be the biggest joke in town. We contracted our hops before we found a location or even bought equipment. I told Troy that I would throw any beer out and delay opening unless it was perfect. In truth, we had no worries because Troy makes great beer. He did not disappoint! As my wife would say, “It’s fabulous.” Our customers say, “They’re all fabulous.” As Dave would say…well he would sniff out each aroma hop, and then describe the grapefruit flavors, the honey overtones and the crisp clean orange peel that delights the palate. I just say, “Man, great beer!”




Benchmark Brewing

Benchmark Brewing is all about delicious beer, beer that we want to take home and drink. We are not about finding the next huge beer trend, or rare ingredient that can only be sourced in the mountains of Djibouti or the chasms of the Pacific Ocean. We want consistently awesome beer that you can rely on to be the gold standard of the style. Our year round beers are low in alcohol and high in flavor; we often find that it is nice to be able to enjoy a beer or two and keep your wits about you. We also know that there are times when a ten percent beer is just what you need to keep you warm at night; to that end we will celebrate the seasons, months, weeks, or whatever we feel needs celebration with specialty releases that will vary wildly in alcohol content and style. No matter the style or strength all Benchmark Beer will set the standard for its kind.

A natural progression and exploration in fermentation, it was the vision of former Knight Salumi Company founder and owner, Rey Knight.

Epic

David Cole and Peter Erickson are the founders and co-owners of Epic Brewing Company. Cole and Erickson, originally from California, started an international aquaculture company in Utah in 1992.

Together, they have teamed with Brewmaster Kevin Crompton, formerly from Bohemian Brewery. Crompton has been brewing for more than 20 years (since 1994) and has brewed for three Utah breweries and another in Hawaii.

Firestone

It began innocently enough: a couple of brothers-in-law sitting around debating the subject of good and bad beer. Instead, their search for a decent ale led them to brew their own. Given Mr. Firestone’s winemaking bias and Mr. Walker’s complete lack of fermentation experience, they believed 60-gallon oak barrels were the appropriate vehicle in which to create their perfect elixir.




Golden Coast Mead

Mead has existed throughout the ages, throughout the great cultures of the world. The Ethiopian Kings drank it, Beowulf drank it. Aristotle, Arjuna, Shakespeare… they all drank it. And so did your great-great-great-great-fore mommas and papas.

So, what exactly is mead? And how do you get it? Well, mead is an adult beverage, made from honey and water. It connects us to our human history, our place, each other, and it’s delicious. You could brew it from home if you wanted to. But to make it well, to make it delicious, to unlock its mirthful potential, you just have to really love making it.

We really, really love making it, and it shows. Golden Coast Mead’s Mirth in a Bottle is a delicious, balanced, semi-sweet orange blossom honey mead. With an intriguing and balanced character combining citrus, ambrosia, flowers, honey, and vanilla, you’ll want to share it with your friends. Our goal is to provide you this delicious and exciting alternative to beer, wine, and cider.

If you have not tried mead before, we recommend that you try ours first.

Ironfire’s beers are for the folks who enjoy beer in all its forms regardless of classification, origin or preconceived notions.

Magic Hat

Magic Hat Brewing Company, South Burlington, Vermont: Where ancient alchemy meets modern day science to create the best tasting beer on the planet. The saturnalian saga of the Magic Hat Brewing Company began in 1978 in a Goddard College bathtub, where future brewmaster Bob Johnson first cultivated his maniacally obsessive interest in making “better beer with bigger flavor.” In a moment of supreme serendipity, Fate sent him off to an accidental meeting on a random Burlington street with future Magic Hat president Alan Newman. Before you could pour a pint, a brewery was born.

Mazama

Mazama Brewing is a packaging brewery in Corvallis Oregon own and operated by Jeff and Kathy Tobin. They started home brewing in 1984 and knew they had found a passion in their new hobby. Their brewing pursuits included making beer styles that were once very difficult to find in the United States. This finally led to a long delay trip the Belgium in 2011, which provided the inspiration to start Mazama brewing.

After spending nearly 30 years as an electrical engineer, Jeff left the high-tech world to pursue brewing full-time in 2013. He has found that his project management, engineering and science background serves him well as head brewer at Mazama.

Kathy as recently retired as an executive leading a high-tech printing and computing business unit. Her years of experience have helped create a solid foundation for Mazama Brewing’s success.




Maui

It’s been a long strange trip from Hopland in 1983.

As we roll into the second decade of a new century, we’ve come from making a handful of ales to the manufacture and distribution our Seasonal Releases, the new Imperial Series, (IPA, Stout & Barleywine) Organic Ale and Lagers (under our Butte Creek Label), our industry jarring Cast-of-Hawk “mix-packs” and an ever-growing number of contracts brewed for other entities (a growing industry trend).

San Diego Brewing Co.

The original manufacturing facility known as San Diego Brewing Company® opened in 1896 with much fanfare. A. E. Horton, the father of San Diego, referred to the Brewery as the most important industrial enterprise since he founded the town. It was the largest manufacturing enterprise in the county.
The brew house held a 25 horse power engine which operated the elevator, barley mill, mash tun and other apparatus. The mash tun could easily give shelter to twenty five men! The brewery’s fermenting cellar was filled with great tanks full of amber fluid, foaming and sparkling. The capacity of the plant was 75,000 barrels.
San Diego Brewing Company® delivered their product to all parts of the city and county in bottles or in barrels. Their beers were said to “sparkle like nectar”. Sadly the company was removed from 32nd Street by the Navy in 1942 and replaced by a base for the Pacific Fleet.
Today the new San Diego Brewing Company® hopes to carry on the tradition that was started so long ago. Along with an assortment of fresh beers brewed on the premises, San Diego Brewing Company® offers up to fifty taps of beer every day, providing a brew to satisfy each and everyone.

on-premise micro-brewery & serve each glass fresh from the tap. Our ales include: Two Timing IPA, Red Amber, Golden Premium, Honey Ale and Hefeweizen. Our Old English Ale and Oatmeal Stout are dispensed through a traditional hand pump creating a distinct similarity to an authentic English Ale.




Sapporo

Sapporo, the oldest beer brand in Japan, was first brewed in Sapporo, Japan in 1876 by the German-trained brewer Seibei Nakagawa. From the beginning, Sapporo was a favorite among beer lovers – a crisp, clean taste they appreciated and an advanced brewing process they respected.

Sapporo Premium was brought to the U.S.A in 1964. In 1984, SAPPORO U.S.A., INC. was founded to maintain the high quality and distribution of the brand throughout the country. Thereafter, Sapporo quickly established its status as the #1 selling Asian beer in the United States.

Today, three varieties of the brand (Sapporo Premium, Sapporo Reserve, and Sapporo Premium Light) are enjoyed by beer connoisseurs across the country.




Shock Top

Shock Top is a traditional Belgian-Style wheat ale. It was originally created in 2006 as a seasonal brew under the name Spring Heat Spiced Wheat. After collecting gold in ’06 and bronze in ’07 in the Belgian White category at the North American Beer Awards, we decided to brew year-round and switch the name to Shock Top. We couldn’t be happier with our decision.

And the best decision you can make is to try some Shock Top for yourself.





Sierra Nevada

Smith & Forge

The Leinenkugel Familybrewery was founded in Chippewa Falls, WI, in May 1867 by Jacob Leinenkugel.

Thorn Street

The location at 3176 Thorn Street was up until early 2012 a local outlet called Home Brews and Gardens. The shop was loved by local patrons but owner Dennis O’Connor realized that he liked making beer a lot more than he did selling supplies to do so. He teamed up with avid home brewers and fellow San Diego natives Dan Carrico and Eric O’Connor to start the project that would transform the former local home brew shop into Thorn Street Brewery. The renovated space has been transformed into a beautiful tasting room with a 7 barrel brew house in a large open naturally lit back room. Local designer Pat Wilkening (Red Craft Custom Design) has been instrumental in the creative development of the property and has created something truly unique in the neighborhood. It is our sincere hope that our hard work will result in a place that you can truly feel cozy and welcome in.




Wet N’ Reckless

Wet ‘N Reckless Brewing is the smallest and newest nanobrewery in San Diego.

When I say “Our story” what I mean is my story because Wet ‘N Reckless is me.

My name is Dave and I love beer. I love to drink it and I love to make it. I’ve been brewing beer at home for 20 years while working as a Biologist, Software Developer, English teacher, amateur fire breather and marriage officiater (not to mention 4 years as a United States Marine- ooh rah!). Early in 2011, I realized that it was actually possible to make my dream come true and open my own brewery.

So, here I am. One man. One mission. One brewery. I’m keeping my day job so there’s not time for much else besides brewing the beer and serving it, so don’t expect a lot of fancy stuff at the brewery.

My focus is being able to provide delicious and unusual beers. Nothing else is of importance. When you come to the brewery for a beer you may notice that lots of stuff is home made. I can’t afford to spend lots of money on fancy looking stuff. I do everything, including this website, so don’t expect much besides some delicious beer and a quaint little place to drink it. It’s a matter of priorities, and the beer is my main priority. Would you have it any other way?

Cheers,

Dave Hyndman, Brewer and Owner of Wet ‘N Reckless Brewing
