TOO BAD COWS CAN’T MAKE GREAT BEER.
This wasn’t always a building of brew. Many moons ago this was a creamery: Pacific Creamery, and later Borden Creamery. So a lot of cows called this place home at one time. But since cows are bad at paying rent, they were given their eviction notices and kicked to the curb. Not by us, mind you…we love our bovine brethren.
The building was originally constructed in 1892. It’s gone through some additions over the years, but its Mission Revival style has remained the same. The brewery is built almost entirely of red brick, with wooden ceilings and a glass clerestory reaching as high as 35 feet, supported by steel suspension. So, all in all, it’s a pretty cool place to hang out and enjoy a cold brew.
