North Coast Brewing Co.

North Coast Brewing Co is a pioneer in the craft beer movement. It opened in 1988 as a local brewpub in the historic town of Fort Bragg, located on California’s Mendocino Coast, under the leadership of brew master Mark Ruedrich.

In addition to Red Seal Ale, Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout, Scrimshaw Pilsner, and other fine North Coast brands, the brewery has resurrected the old Acme label with a heritage dating back to the San Francisco of the 1860’s.

These exceptional beers are available in 47 states now and also are exported to Europe and the Pacific Rim.
