In October of 2019, Mad River Brewing Company became a wholly owned business by the Yurok Agriculture Corporation, making it one of the first Tribal Breweries in the United States. Now expanding efforts to create meaningful partnerships in Indian Country and trailblazing a Native American Category in the craft beer industry, Mad River Brewery continues to honor their 30+years legacy of brewing best-quality beers by employing the cut-no-corners approach that continues to result in the most prestigious awards in the industry. Mad River Brewery is rebranded as a culturally appropriate package displaying the story of the Yurok Tribe and the environmental endeavors each product supports.
Mad River Brewery is now the leading tribal craft beer in the world of professional sports. Announced in February 2022, Mad River Brewery became official partners of the San Francisco Giants as the first tribal beer in the MLB. In June, Mad River Brewery formed a partnership with the San Jose Barracuda, also marking history as the first tribal brewery partnership in the AHL. Recognized across Northern California and beyond, these partnerships mark a new chapter in the world of sports, where the tokenization of Indigenous Peoples has long been a problem.
Strengthening intertribal commerce while developing new products that showcase the brewery’s dedication to craft, Mad River Brewery is trailblazing the path where these dreams come together. Partnering with the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska to source regeneratively-grown, Mad River Brewery has released the latest in a lineup of quality craft beers, Maize Goddess Indigenous Ale. Also on the forefront is a plan to expand brewing operations, re-establish a larger distribution footprint on the West Coast, and develop impactful partnerships that echo support for Indigenous visibility. Mad River Brewery is leaning into channels that strengthen tribal economics and ultimately, tribal sovereignty.
