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 1/2
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.
