Craft LA adds Mad River Brewing Company to portfolio


We are excited to announce that starting this August we will begin distribution for Mad River Brewing Company!

This Humboldt County brewery is one of the oldest in California; producing award-winning brews from their original location for the last twenty six years. While Mad Riverhas been around the block for quite some time, they are still staying on top of their game, winning the Small Brewery of the Year and Small Brewery Brewer of the Year at the Great American Beer Festival in 2010. Their products can now be found in 18 states from California to Virginia.

Mad River's most well-known product line, Steelhead, includes their flagship brew Steelhead Extra Pale Ale, which is still popular to this day as evidenced by the three GABF medals it took home in the last five years. The line also includes Extra Stout, Scotch Porter and Double IPA, which are rated 97, 95 and 92 points respectively on

Their Jamaica brand was created as a tribute to NorCal's famous Reggae on the River Festival, and the Artisan Reserve line is a series of limited release specialty brews including Humboldt Brownie, Humboldt Haze and River Runs Rye, all of which are now available at CBGDLA!  

Beer geeks should keep an eye out for Mad River on tap lines and store shelves in the weeks ahead. If you're a manager at a retail location or restaurant and are interested in carrying Mad River products, please give us a shout!
