Mad River Brewing Company was established by Bob Smith in 1990. Investors began to invest and construction of the facility began to take place for the brewery with the help of Ken Grossman. Ever since its establishment, the Mad River Brewing Company has committed to crafting fine ales into fine flavors of beers using traditional brewing methods and sustainable practices. Steelhead Extra Pale Ale and John Barleycorn Barleywine are some of the brewery’s award winning and most notable beers. Mad River Brewing Company takes pride in its reuse and recycle program for its papers and metal products as well as its efficient waste water management.
