In the fall of 2004 the owners of Sonora Brewing Company sold their brewery and we were faced with some big decisions to either change our format or renovate our other buildings into a brewery. Never before had we even dreamed of being in the brewing business and now faced with it the thought seemed daunting. Reminders of past microbreweries that had tried and filed in the Central Corridor surfaced. In the end we jumped in and began yet another long construction renovation. The seven barrel system that looms behind the floor to ceiling glass in our Brewer's Den is the fruits of our labor and February 14, 2006 marked a new chapter in our history. You see, this was the day that the first three beers brewed on site flowed.
