About Us

The Operation


Old Redwood Brewing is an exciting microbrewery located in the heart of wine country informed by traditional techniques, infused with local flavor and creative execution delivering small batch bottlings presented in our brewery taproom. 

Founded in 2012 by Clay Fritz and Dominic Foppoli, Old Redwood Brewing Company has a fantastic location in an old building in Windsor. We brew all of our own products from the finest and freshest ingredients available.

Is brewing beer hard? The answer can vary so much that the question becomes ambiguous. According to Manuel (our resident Beer Sherpa) it really depends on the specific beer.

Coming up with a new recipe and brewing a new beer each month while staying consistent can seem like a daunting task, especially for a smaller scale brewery. Old Redwood Brewing Company makes it a point to try and stay 2 to 3 months ahead of release dates for their beers, so that way everything is on hand and ready without any delays.

Manuel admitted that it can sometimes be difficult to come up with new beer recipes, but the real struggle comes with trying to find a fitting name for each one!


The Trend

Does Old Redwood Brewing Company fall in line with the wonderous trends of the craft beer scene? Or does is stray away on a different path? A variety of flavors is always a good thing when it comes to beer and Old Redwood Brewing Company has delivered the right combination of flavor variety backed up with excellent brewing skills. Everything from light smooth beers to hop bombs and the darker, heavier brews– something unique can always be found at Old Redwood.


Thirsty Yet?

I know I am. In fact I could go for a nice cold Timber right now. All this beer talk must have you thinking of that crisp Imperial Red Ale, with those delectable caramel and toffee flavors.


Come get some!
