ABOUT RUHSTALLER

Ruhstaller was originally founded in Sacramento in 1881 by Captain Frank Ruhstaller, California’s premier pioneer brewer. Today Ruhstaller honors the Captain’s legacy by brewing distinctive beers that express the unique flavors of quality California Grown  –  and increasingly Sacramento Grown  –  ingredients. Year-round selections include three-time 2013 medal winner Gilt Edge California Golden Lager1881 California Red Ale and CAPT California Black IPA. Ruhstaller farms 7.5 acres of hops at the Ruhstaller Farm & Yard in Dixon, California and welcomes the public to its taprooms at the Dixon Farm and in Downtown Sacramento.
