In the fall of 2010, Jeremy (brewmaster) and Jerry Moore (our CEO & Janitor) met, sampled a few of Jeremy’s creations and ultimately agreed to work together to get more than “Knee Deep” in a premium craft beer brewery. In the mean time, Knee Deep Brewing Company continued to “contract brew” and sell kegs in Northern Nevada.
In the first quarter of 2011, the company reached an agreement to lease the former Beermann’s Brewery in Lincoln, CA. During the renovation and startup phase Knee Deep’s beers continued to be contract brewed in another brewery in California. In May 2011, our first batch of beer was brewed in our Lincoln brewery. Over time we phased out the contract brewing and now all our beer is brewed in our Lincoln facility. We currently have two UC Davis trained brewers managed by Jeremy and we operate 7 days a week. Our beers can be found throughout California and are also sold in Arizona, Nevada, Ohio and Idaho. Knee Deep's brews have received several awards; most recently our Hoptologist DIPA took the Gold Medal earlier this year at The Bistro 14th Annual DIPA Festival. Knee Deep Brewing Company has a rapidly growing reputation and we are becoming known for our unique blends and creative outlook on brewing. We take pride in our reputation and strive to continue brewing outstanding craft beers.
