Serving fine beer in a friendly setting for more than 20 years.
The family and staff at Golden City Brewery were shocked by the news of the earthquake near Kathmandu, Nepal, which has affected to many of our friends who live there. We are part of a small group of Americans who invested with our Nepalese friends to start the first craft brewery in Nepal. The brewery just started operations in Chainpur 8, Chitwan, Nepal. You may have seen the photos of our Brewmaster, Charlie Sturdavant, in Nepal helping to get the brewery going.
Now we need to help our friends and neighbors to provide basics like medical supplies, food, gasoline, blankets and clothing following this terribly devastating earthquake. Our office is in Kathmandu and the need there is dire. Since we have an existing bank relationship in Nepal, we can transfer funds from our collection account here in the States directly to Nepal overnight. We also have people in Nepal, at: Lukla, Chainpur, Pokara and Kathmandu who can assess the needs and distribute aid very quickly.
The Sherpa Brewery was shaken but not harmed. We can use our Chainpur facility for collection and distribution of aid. Click here for more information and to donate what you can. Thanks for your support.
Golden City Brewery was founded in 1993 by two geologists, Charlie & Janine Sturdavant. They filled the old machine shop behind their historic Golden home with used dairy tanks and Charlie began brewing German-style ales. The tasting room was originally located in the sunroom of their house and provided Red Ale and Pale Ale to the local community in half-gallon growlers and kegs. Since that time, the operation has expanded at the same location (still their home). The carriage house has become the the tasting room, the backyard is the beer garden. The brewery is still in the machine shop, but a second level was added inside. All of the old equipment has been replaced with real beer fermenters and a slightly used gas-fired kettle. The brewery produces those now legendary Red & Pale Ales, in addition to a few other brews.
