About Us

WE GROW BEER | Ruhstaller was originally founded in Sacramento in 1881 by Captain Frank Ruhstaller, California’s premier pioneer brewer. Today Ruhstaller honors the Captain’s legacy by partnering with local hop and barley farmers to grow the finest ingredients for its California Grown beers. Year-round selections include Gilt Edge California Golden Lager, 1881 California Red Ale and CAPT California Black IPA. Ruhstaller farms nearly 8 acres of California hops at the new Ruhstaller Farm & Yard in Dixon, California and was recently named as one of the ’10 Great American Farmhouse Breweries’ by Bon Appétit Magazine.
