In 2013, I watched a couple of YouTube videos on home brewing. The next week, I bought an extract kit from Napa Fermentation and with the help of my neighbor, we made that first batch of Malty magic. I was amazed at the process of what we created; it was the best beer I’d ever tasted, (Haha), I was hooked.
In 2015, it was time to move to a more permanent brewing location where the space was dedicated to brewing. The “Brew Shack” was born about 1,000 ft from where SBC sits now. I can still remember how big the first commercial 3.5-barrel brew house system I brewed on seemed at that time, but now, seeing the 3.5 barrel fermenter next to our new 30-barrel fermenters, it reminds me how far we have come.
About myself, I was born and raised Benicia, CA. When I was young, I was always involved in open wheel racing. I raced dirt and pavement sprint gokarts locally and around the US from age 12 to 20. Later I started working in a machine shop in Vallejo after high school making Sprintcar parts. In 2010, I started working at a national laboratory as a machinist. Racing and Brewing are my life’s passion, right below my lovely wife Debbie of 35 years, 3 sons and 2 grandchildren.

In 2015 they were married, and in 2016 they had a little girl named Paisley, who you may see running around the property. Their baby boy Beau was born in 2019 and has subsequently joined his sister in her adventures around the property.
With nearly 15 years of food and beverage service between them, they now run SBC’s front of house operations, and they haven’t disappointed!

It all started with a call from a friend saying there is this great home brewer (Brian Bell) that wants to take it to the next level and needs a place to brew at a much larger scale than in his garage. After trying his beer, that was it, we were in! Although our background is not in brewing beer, we have run multiple businesses in the past and we knew this one was going to be successful.
Fortunately, after talking with our son and daughter-in-law, Ryan and Audrey, they were willing to take this journey with us. Our true joy in owning SBC is watching our customers, their family and friends, enjoying the atmosphere and amenities we have created, not to mention the fantastic award winning beers our brewers produce!

The weizen glass (or wheat beer glass) features thin walls and a lot of length to showcase the color of wheat beers. The design also locks in the style’s signature banana and clove aromas and provides proper space for a thick, fluffy head. They are sometimes confused with pilsner glasses, but there are important distinctions. A weizen glass typically holds a ⅕ liter of beer (compared to a pilsner’s 12 to 14 ounces), and it boasts some attractive curvature.

This is our take on the classic and popular German Amber Lager that's drunk in Munich during Oktoberfest. This beer is to style! Malty, sweet, dry, bready, and crisp! This is an ode to the biggest beer festival in the world. Whether you're overseas, watching Sunday Football, or in your backyard kicking back. This beer sure won't disappoint. Prost!

Designed by Spiegelau in partnership with Left Hand Brewing Company from Colorado and Rogue Ales from Oregon, this distinctive stout glass deserves a spot in every beer connoisseurs china cabinet. The shape of the base and angle of the bowl accentuates the roasted malts and notes of rich coffee and chocolate that define stout beers. The angled shelf and narrow mouth promote head retention.

A jug- or pail-like container once used to carry draught beer bought by the measure at the local tavern. Growlers are usually ½ gal (64 oz) or 2L (68 oz) in volume and made of glass. Brewpubs often serve growlers to sell beer to-go. Often a customer will pay a deposit on the growler but can bring it back again and again for a re-fill. Growlers to-go are not legal in all U.S. states.

Mind-blowing handmade gourmet pizza slice fresh off my little red food wagon.
Each pizza is made with fine attention to detail, patience and love. All pizzas are made by hand with NO MACHINES!! Fermentation, resting, cooling, shaping and folding takes almost 1 week from start to finish.
Try this focaccia-style dough with a strong crisp crust and you'll understand why our followers love our one-of-a-kind dough (and your stomach will thank you that you don't have bloating and it's easy to digest)
Dai! Mangiamo! - Come on! Let's Eat!
