Foothills Brewing

- Present

Foothills began brewing beer in March 2005, with three 15-barrel fermenters. Jamie and his brewers managed to crank out 800 barrels of beer that year, and doubled that output the following year. As demand and production continued to increase, Foothills expanded into a 48,000 square foot warehouse a few miles away, an old manila envelope factory that was retro-fitted with brewing equipment and became the main production facility, located at 3800 Kimwell Drive. Today both brewery locations continue to produce top-quality beers. Foothills offers weekend tours from the tasting room at their main brewing facility. Conversely, if you ask nicely at the downtown brewpub, you can probably get a peek at the operation.

Its really about bringing people together, tying community in, and keeping people happy.... It's just really about being a meeting place and being a connector, a social connector for people.
