The name and slogan is an ode to impromptu backyard hangouts. Don’t bother with the front door - just let yourself in through the Side Gate!
Side Gate was founded by two Bay Area natives, Kevin Wilson and Paul Culbertson, who met as coworkers and bonded over their love of craft beer and homebrewing. A mutual dream to open up a brewery was cemented through a business plan and the decision to leave their office jobs to follow their true passion.
All of their beers are brewed on-site and served to you as fresh as possible in the taproom and spacious outdoor beer garden.
