Redefining the American Lager

Sudwerk Brewing Co. has been crafting the finest German style lagers found in California since 1989.

"We choose to brew lagers not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because the end result will serve to refresh and bring the best of our energies and skill, because the challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to drink, with others too."

Rooted in traditional German brewing practices mixed with an innovative Californian twist, Sudwerk is focused on creating the highest quality craft lagers known to man. The hybrid beer styles can best be described as West Coast craft lagers. Join us in our mission as we tirelessly work at perfecting our craft and sharing it with you.
