Lagunitas Brewing Co. | Petaluma, CA
From our earliest days of striving to make consistently good beer, and instead making beer that ranged from vile, to barely drinkable, to wonderful, to elegant, to questionable-at-best. From being castigated by our West Marin neighbors to finally suffering an 'eviction' by our West Marin septic system. From landing in the welcoming arms of Petaluma, and actually getting our beer into bottles, onto the streets, and into the hands of sympathetic beer geeks, to steadily losing less money each month. From all this and more, Lagunitas Brewing Company is emerging as a battle-tested brewery capable of making great beer out of goat's milk, brambles, and asphalt on the surface of the Moon, if need be. As the poet once said, 'Where, but for the grace of God and the kindness of strangers, go I'. Where go we indeed, whatever that means.

Sierra Nevada | Chico, CA
The idea of starting a brewery was something I spent years dreaming about before we actually got started in 1980. As an avid hiker, I spent many days climbing the Sierra Nevada’s for inspiration, and it was there that the grandeur of the mountains inspired me to think big. I decided I wanted my brewery to do two things well: the first was to make big, flavorful beers that stood out from the mainstream the way the Sierras towered over California. Back then, flavorful beers were almost unheard of; but I felt if we used the purest ingredients to make the finest quality ales, people would catch on. The second thing I wanted to do was minimize our environmental impact. The Sierras had been my inspiration for the brewery, so I knew we needed to do our part to preserve them and the planet. We began brewing in a small, hand-built brew-house, pieced together with recycled stainless steel and dairy equipment. That basic setup made the importance of top-quality ingredients even more obvious. We decided that showcasing the unique flavors and aromatics of whole-cone hops would be an important distinction for our beers. We felt the subtle nuances from hop bine to hop bine made our beers more interesting than those made with the uniformity of pelletized hops and extracts. Back in the early days, few people could appreciate the bold flavors of beers like ours-made with 100% whole-cone hops. Today, people everywhere enjoy the experience of drinking our hoppy, full-flavored beer, and now-three decades later-we use more whole-cone hops than any brewer in the world. For us, every Sierra Nevada beer is a labor of love-a combination of the finest ingredients, thirty years of experience and the quality, craftsmanship, and flavor that can only come from a hand-made, all-natural beer. We thank you for sharing this adventure. - KEN GROSSMAN

Samuel Adams - The Boston Beer Company
THE BOSTON BEER COMPANY BACKGROUND: The Boston Beer Company began in 1984 with a generations-old family recipe that Founder and Brewer Jim Koch uncovered in his father’s attic. After bringing the recipe to life in his kitchen, Jim brought it to bars in Boston with the belief that drinkers would appreciate a complex, full-flavored beer, brewed fresh in America. That beer was Samuel Adams Boston Lager®, and it helped catalyze what became known as the American craft beer revolution.
