HOW WE BEGAN
We are a craft brewery and restaurant founded in 2000 by the Cooperrider family, and was the first certified organic brewpub in the country. Since the founding it 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 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 Radabaguh. 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
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.
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.
