Beyond making tasty food and beers, we are working to grow a community rooted in kindness. We host regular bike rides and other activities that encourage people to get active in the beautiful sierra foothills. Our brewery is a great place to start and end a bike ride, hike or day on the river.
Here are a few other businesses and organizations we work with regularly that share our ethos.
Our sister business is a six-room historic boutique hotel in downtown Amador city with a full bar and dining room.
16 Quartz Hop Farm
Located on highway 16 about 5 miles from the brewery, 16 Quartz grows a range of excellent quality hops. We buy as much of our hops as we can from them.
Our friends Dan and Tori run this great little veggie farm out in Ione. Their veggies are unparalleled, and we use a lot of them on our menu.
PT ranch is an ambitious and inspiring regenerative ranch located in Ione. They raise sheep, pigs, and chickens, and have done land restoration projects that include rotational grazing and silvopasture.
We purchase over 95% of the grain used in our beers from admiral maltings in alameda. They work with farmers across California to grow low impact, dry farmed barley, wheat, and oats. They take that California grain and malt it up for us to make beer out of. It’s remarkably tasty stuff.
