Our Story

HOW WE BEGAN

We are a craft brewery and restaurant founded in 2000 by the Cooperrider family, and were the first certified organic brewpub in the country. Since the founding it has changed hands several times. Christopher Struett and Taylor Pedersen acquired the brewery in 2017.

We focus on providing our community and visitors with high-quality handmade beer and food, sourcing as much as we can from the bounty of our beautiful Mendocino County. Try one of Keith Feigin’s delicious brews and then maybe have another. If you aren’t lucky enough to have a taste for beer, we’ve got you covered with a full bar packed with wines and spirits from here in Mendocino and beyond.

Enjoy our special brand of hospitality from our management team Alessandra Ziviani and Andrew Radabaugh. In addition to great beer and food, check out our entertainment calendar and enjoy a wide variety of music curated and presented on our state of the art stage and sound system.

WHAT IS GOING ON

Ukiah restaurant delivering Great Plates to seniors in Mendocino County

Taylor Pedersen met his husband, Christopher Struett, in San Francisco where he had previously co-owned the local favorite – and now closed – Bernal Hills seafood eatery Red Hill Station. After they married, he moved north to Ukiah, Struett’s hometown for over 14 years.

When Ritual came up for sale in 2017, they bought it and changed it back to its former name, Ukiah Brewing Company.

“Once you start in this business you get hit with the bug,” says Pedersen.

Ukiah Brewing Company brought back to life by new owners

A few weeks ago, new owners took over Ritual in downtown Ukiah and began quietly turning it back into the Ukiah Brewing Company.

But the first order of business wasn’t taking down the signs. It was cleaning out the freezer full of packaged foods and replacing them with fresh items produced either in-house or nearby.

“I’d rather write a check to someone who is local than to some corporation that isn’t,” said Taylor Pedersen, who bought the restaurant with his husband and business partner Chris Struett on Feb. 1.

Love the place. Love the new owners. Love the new vibes. Really glad it’s going a more friendly direction with awesome cocktails and on point food. Excited to see where this goes!

Josh Bowers

Great food, venue, service, and beverages. I had the beet salad (fantastic) and my son had the fish and chips. Had a bit of his fish and it was some of the best fish I have ever had! Highly recommend this place.
