Mad River Brewing is a piece of Humboldt, our piece of Humboldt to share. Tucked away behind the majestic California Redwoods, Mad River Brewery (MRB) gives you the Northern California experience every time you raise your glass. Often noted as the best beer in Humboldt, our MRB family takes nothing for granted and with a modest attitude we brew every batch with your enjoyment and your taste buds in mind.

Because we didn’t get into this to start a business, we did it because of our love and passion for great beer. We did it so that we have something to share with our friends, and as a catalyst to make new friends. It worked.

Our purpose is simple; Good friends and quality beer equal great experiences. We are not here to “sell” you or convince you, you will have to try it for yourself and create your own story. Let’s hang out and enjoy the sun, so join the family at Mad River Brewing. Get your piece of Humboldt, and enjoy the beer and its people.
