LOST COAST BREWERY is an award-winning brewery located in Eureka, California. It also happens to be the greatest place in the world (no bias whatsoever). We brew a variety of awesome beers year-round, and put out some equally awesome seasonal beers, that…you know…vary based on the season.

What started as a crazy experiment soon grew into a fledgling brewery based out of a 100-year-old building in downtown Eureka. Funny things happen when you consistently crank out great beer. Lost Coast continued to expand, gaining fans around the globe and outgrowing a couple brewing facilities along the way.

We’re now located just south of Eureka, brewing out of a custom-built brewery that’s designed to grow with the company.
