Brewery Description:

Eel River Brewing Company began brewing in December 1995 and right away the beer was winning awards. In 1997 they won the big one – ERB’s Ravensbrau Porter won the silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado. The next year was even better. Climax California Classic – a lager named after Scotia’s own Climax Engine (a steam locomotive that used to haul logs out of the forest) – won gold at GABF! “Have you had your Climax today?” Much more than just an ad slogan, the question took on a whole new meaning for fans of the rich, smooth hand-crafted brew. And that was just the beginning of winning tradition for the little brewery by the river. The years since then have witnessed hundreds of awards, ribbons, medals and honors of all descriptions for Eel River Brewing Company. The California State Brewers Competition, the Los Angeles County Fair, the World Beer Championships, the Great American Beer Festival, the Australian International Beer Festival and the European Beer Star are among the organizations that have honored ERB brews. –
