Hermitage Brewing has deep roots. Our first brewpub opened in 1987, one of the first half dozen in the Golden State. It is still open. Our production facility in San Jose opened in 2008 and has rapidly earned a seat at the table of the top 5% by volume breweries in the USA. The size gives us crazy access to technology, people, hops, etc. We are fortunate, but you may not have heard about us because we brew for many other Bay Area breweries. Our own brand is just now coming into it’s own.
