About Santa Maria Brewing Co.

Since 1994 Santa Maria Brewing Co. has been the best little brewery nobody knew about. Founded by Dan Hilker and Gary Ford, Santa Maria Brewing Co. is the best kept secret for those traveling up and down Highway 101 in California. With the incredible support of local clientele, Santa Maria stands tall, never sacrificing the quality of our award-winning beer.

In July of 2013 a new partnership emerged, ten years in the making.  Purchased by Byron & Karen Moles and partnering with Dan Hilker, Santa Maria Brewing Co. has moved into a new home, expanded our barrel production, partnering with select pubs, restaurants, and retailers across the U.S, started an incredible Beer of the Month Club. We look forward to serving you the highest quality, most memorable beer we can produce.
