Russian River Brewing Company was established by Korbel Champagne Cellars in Guerneville, CA, in 1997. Vinnie was recruited as the brewery's brewmaster and at the first sole worker. For the following 6 years, Vinnie kept on setting the bar high for super hoppy and Belgian-propelled beers. Pliny the Elder first brewed at the Korbel area in quite a while, one of the main financially brewed Double or Imperial IPA's in America and prevailed upon various honors the years. It is as yet our most mainstream beer over 20 years after the fact.
In 2003, Korbel chose to escape the beer business and moved the rights to the Russian River Brewing Company name, all beer names, and the recipes to Vinnie and his better half, Natalie. They composed a strategy, discovered 2 overseeing accomplices, and persuaded 30 loved ones to put resources into their new brewpub adventure. In April 2004, they made the ways for the following section of Russian River Brewing under their possession.
Our beers have won many honors from the Great American Beer Festival and World Beer Cup. Vinnie and the brewery were twice named "Brewery and Brewmaster of the Year" at both the GABF and World Beer Cup. In 2007, Vinnie was granted the "Russell Scherrer Award for Innovation in Brewing". Vinnie and Natalie got the "Brewers Association Recognition Award" in 2017. Be that as it may, the main honor of everything is the numerous beer enthusiasts who visit from around the globe quite a long time after year!
Throughout the long term, Vinnie and Natalie had the option to purchase out the entirety of their accomplices and speculators. The choice was made in 2014 to manufacture their fantasy brewery here in Sonoma County. The quest for property took almost 2 years which permitted them an opportunity to gather their "fantasy group" of modelers, advisors, fashioners, and contractual workers. Also, they got a great deal of supportive exhortation from their companions in the beer business! They discovered 15 lacking sections of land in Windsor, CA, and were immediately drenched in a truly incredible venture.
On October 11, 2018, they made ways for their new brewpub! The whole brewery is 85,000 square feet and incorporates beer creation for both clean beers and sharp barrel-aged beers, regulatory workplaces, a brewpub, outside beer garden, blessing shop, tasting room/growler fills, guided and independently directed visits, and 2 sections of land of free stopping.
This expanded limit has permitted them to disperse more draft and bottled beer to business sectors in which they at present sell just as open up some new domains within the province of California. The first Downtown Santa Rosa area keeps on thriving contribution little cluster brews and delicious pizza. Vinnie, Natalie, and all their committed workers are eager to share a beer or two at both breweries with you!
