El Segundo was founded over a love of hops and a desire to brew beer as delicious as what was being done down in San Diego… because we just couldn’t find it close enough to home. In a garage, behind the Blue House, Rob cut his teeth on his home-brew kit for a decade.
In 2010 we leased the space we now occupy at 140 Main St. It was a meager start with just the capacity to make 60 bbls a month. Now we make over 400. Focusing on hops was always the plan, but as we obtained access to the hops we wanted, we found our customers just couldn’t get enough.
