What started the Lost Coast Brewery? A great idea, in 1986, from two young women. When Wendy Pound and Barbara Groom thought "What could be better than making your own beer?" Well, making your own beer and selling it! They got their hops in a row and walked away from their 9 to 5 jobs as a marriage & family counselor and a pharmacist to pursue their beer brewing dreams!
After much brewing and planning, including plenty of visits to pubs in England and Wales, Wendy & Barbara opened the Lost Coast Brewery & Cafe in Eureka, California. The 100-year-old building, a restored wood frame structure built in 1892, was purchased from its original owners -- The Fraternal Order of the Knights of Pythias. Don't worry, you don't need a secret handshake to get in, just a thirst for great beer and great food!
