Lost Coast Brewery
English-style ales but with a distinctive West Coast flair
The Lost Coast Brewery and Cafe began as a shared dream in 1986 between two young women - Barbara Groom (a pharmacist) and Wendy Pound (a family counselor). The friends dreamed of making and selling their own beer, and after years of experimental home brewing, planning,studying, and a number of visits to English pubs, that dream finally became a reality.
In 1989, Groom and Pound purchased a 100-year-old historical building in Eureka, California, and just a quick year later it became the site for Lost Coast Brewery and Cafe. Groom took on the role of Master Brewer and has since embraced the rich tradition of English-style ales but with a distinctive West Coast flair. By brewing her ales with Western Plains barley and wheat and the exceptionally clean water of Humboldt County, the Lost Coast craft beers are undeniably unique and flavorful.
After more than 20 years in business, Lost Coast Brewery and Cafe has an expanding line of incredible, award-winning brews and an additional bottling and production site has been added to keep up with consumer demand. The restaurant offers a delicious plethora of snacks, appetizers, and hearty meals that are only enhanced by the wide selection of world-class beer.
Lost Coast Brewery is one of California's fastest expanding craft breweries and the owners are rightfully proud of the accomplishment.
