More than a century ago the California citrus industry was born in our own city of Riverside. The citrus boom rapidly brought notoriety and prosperity to our region. We chose the name Packinghouse Brewing Company as a nostalgic tribute to the original citrus packinghouses of our hometown. Each day we strive to blend our passion for finely crafted micro brews with the pride we have for our cultural heritage. We hope each pint says as much.
Packinghouse began in 2009 with a love of craft beer and no more than two nickels to rub together. Bootstrapped from the beginning, we began brewing Riley’s and Heritage 30 gallons at a time in 10 gallon kettles. Since then we’ve grown to brewing on a proper brewhouse, into proper tanks with paid employees. Our goal is to provide our customers with true, delicious brews created thoughtfully and artfully. We currently brew four year round brews which are served throughout Southern California and several seasonal/specialty brews that can be found in our tasting room. We also brew a variety of IPAs ranging from single hop to rye to black. Our dedication to quality craft beer is stronger than ever and we look forward to sharing a beer with you soon.
