20th Anniversary Celebration

NCBC 2oth Anniversary AleNorth Coast Brewing completed the celebration of its 20th anniversary on Sunday, September 7.  The festivities began on Friday evening with a banquet honoring many of those in the industry who had contributed to the brewery’s success.  That was followed by a beer and cheese tasting on Saturday as a benefit for the Coast Humane Society.  The event featured artisan cheeses paired with North Coast brews including Brother Thelonious, Old Stock Ale, Le Merle and others.

The weekend culminated on Sunday with a sell-out concert by the New Orleans group, the subdudes, that was attended by over 900 very enthusiastic fans.  North Coast Brewing sponsored the concert as a fund raiser for the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens and the North Coast Salmon Fisheries.

The brewery is proud to have been an important part of the Mendocino Coast community for twenty years as an employer, a social hub and a contributor to making life here even more idyllic.
