Our Brewery

Full Scale

In-house Brewery

Steele & Hops’ brewery operations are managed by Justin Green, who has been pursuing his passion for brewing for over 20 years.  Green started as a homebrewer and parlayed that interest into volunteering at Black Diamond and Drake’s, eventually landing a role as brewer at Jupiter in Berkeley, where he enjoyed the creative freedom to experiment and explore flavor profiles through small-batch production brews.  Over his four-year tenure at Jupiter, Green produced a bevy of beloved beers; his greatest hits include English strong ale Apogee, and a hazy citrus beer called The Oort Cloud.  In May 2018 he moved to EJ Phair, one of the Bay Area’s early established craft beer operations, where he learned how to produce consistent quality on a large-scale, using a 30-barrel brewery system.

With a production goal of six to eight beers, Green’s program at Steele & Hops will offer balance and a healthy dose of seasonality, with ample room for experimentation.  He’ll initially focus on establishing Sonoma County classic beers and then delve into special, seasonal releases that utilize the herbs, produce, and honey produced on the property.  As the brewery matures, Green plans to increase the depth of the program through a barrel aging program and collaborations with other breweries and community partners.  The custom-made seven-barrel brewery was built by Healdsburg-based Criveller, which also designed breweries for Henhouse in Petaluma and Cooperage in Santa Rosa.  Steele & Hops own house beers will be flowing by early October if all goes according to plan.
