Lost Coast Brewery is a microbrewery located in Eureka, California. The brewery was founded in 1990 by Barbara Groom and Wendy Pound after many years of experimental and home brewing. The cool and maritime climate in Eureka has allowed for the brewery to craft fine quality of ales. Barbara and Wendy have always made it a goal to incorporate English-style ales. Later on, the Western Plains barley and wheat along with excellent quality of water from Humboidt County have become a big part on new flavors of ales. The Lost Coast Brewery has come a long way from its small operations in 1990. Since 2009, it has begun producing at least 50, 000 barrels of beer each year.
