Sierra Nevada
Ken Grossman learned to homebrew from the father of a close friend. From an early age, he was enamored by the sights and smells of the fermenting jugs of bubbling beer. His first attempts at brewing were rudimentary at best, but began a lifelong passion for the art of fermentation. Grossman began planning a new small-scale brewery based in Chico. He took inspiration from the nearby mountains - the Sierra Nevada mountain range - and launched Sierra Nevada

Stella Artois

At Stella Artois, we are extremely proud of our Belgian roots. Our story can be seen on every bottle of Stella Artois. If you look closely, hints of our origins are proudly displayed.
Zero Gravity Beer
In 2012 we began distributing Zero Gravity Beer for off-premise sales, and two years later we had maxed out the production at the Flatbread Brewpub. Needing more space we found a beautiful location in Burlington’s South End Arts District, and in the spring of 2015, the Pine Street brewery came to be. A 30-barrel brew house, full canning line, tasting room, retail shop and a sun-drenched beer garden make this spot a premier destination for beer travelers and regulars alike. This location also houses our barrel aging program and allows us to make styles that we previously did not have the space to attempt.
