Santa Clara, CA

craftED with knowledge × brewed with passion

 

First brewery in Santa Clara since prohibition. Located in the old Memorex building.

 

Golden State Brewery (GSB) opened in February 2016 and is located in the old Memorex building. Since then, Our taproom was designed to encompass the local community, which is why it is positioned in the center of the brewery. The unobstructed views of the brewery operations allow for everyone to see these beers from beginning to end. We are pet friendly and encourage all patrons to bring their dog as his or her picture will be added to the GSB Dog Wall.

Creating a great beer demands the blend of knowledge and passion. Knowledge is understanding the capability of the ingredients. Passion is derived from never settling for regular or common flavors and charging to exceed expectations. You’ll soon discover the absolute perfection of drinking a craft beer at the source.

Our philosophy is to make great beer, have fun, and care about our community!
