Eel River Brewing: Say Hello To The First Certified Organic Brewery In The USA!


For all of you eco-conscious beer drinkers out there, if you haven’t tried Eel River Brewing you have done your palate a great injustice. But never fear, for there is no time like the present. Famed as America’s very first certified organic brewery, Eel River Brewing began in 1995 when proprietors Ted Vivatson and Margaret Frigon decided to open a full-service gastropub in Fortuna – a micro town in the furthest northwest area of California just south of Eureka. Eel River Brewing maintains a strong commitment towards high-quality, award-winning beer made from environmentally friendly ingredients. So the next time you find yourself exploring the majestic redwoods of Humboldt County, be sure to stop by for some delicious suds and comfort food.
