About

Alameda Island Brewing Company was founded by Matthew Fox and Bill Phua. Stationed here in the Coast Guard from 1998-2000, Matt immediately fell in love with the island. He met his wife (a fourth generation Alamedan) here in 1999. After home brewing for eight years, Matt pursued turning his love of brewing into a career. read more

Alameda Island Brewing Company is a microbrewery meaning the primary focus of our business is distribution. We have a beautiful and inviting tasting room and patio, we offer tours of the facility and have created a welcoming space for families (kids are welcome) and even dogs (but only on the patio, please). Alameda Island’s facility is 10,000 square feet with a tasting room over 1,500 square feet. We are running a 20 barrel brew house, with a 40 barrel mash tun and 40 barrel fermenters. We invite you to come in and try our beers.

We offer different flights at the brewery giving you options to try everything we have on tap. Our knowledgeable beer servers can guide you through the beers and easily direct you to something you will enjoy and perhaps something you have never tried before.
