About Eel River Brewery

About Eel River Brewing Company

Located in the small Northern Californian logging town of Fortuna (just down Hwy 1 from Lost Coast), Eel River Brewing Co. has been in operation since 1995, founded by brewers Ted Vivatson and Margaret Frigon.  Inspired by friends, they decided to make their entire brewery organic which was certified in 1999, a US first!  In addition, Ted and Margaret are committed to sustainability, from running the brewery on 100% bio-mass renewable energy (also a US first!) to feeding spent grain to the cattle which in turn supply meat for the brewpub.

But enough about sustainability, how's the beer? Well Eel River have been winning awards since their first year of operation, including a gold medal for their Organic Porter at the 2010 Australian International Beer Awards, gold medals for the IPA and Ravens Eye Imperial Stout at the 2005 Beer Championships and a total of five medals for their Triple Exultation at the Great American Beer Festival since 2004!
