Placerville Brewing Company was established in the summer of 2005. Nestled in the county seat of California’s, El Dorado (Spanish for “the golden one”) County, we are within a gold nugget’s throw from the original California gold discovery site in Coloma. CA, where the news of “gold in them thar the hills,” was heard around the World.
We respect and honor the heritage of the 49er gold miner’s spirit with our endeavor to take chances, endeavor to be the best we can and to never settle for less. We inherited a rich tradition of brewing in Placerville which includes The Mountain Brewery (early through mid-1800s) and Ziess Brewery (mid-1800s to Prohibition). Our décor features historical items (an old wooden beer cask, beer shipping crates, photos) from these and other local breweries.
