In 2012, Founder Caitlin Landesberg started her search for the perfect beer to cheers with friends after long trail runs in and around San Francisco… but didn’t find a beer that fit the bill when it came to celebrating her athletic lifestyle and diet. So, taking matters into her own hands, Caitlin spent years developing the beer she wanted to see in the world. After teaming up with an all-star brewmaster to perfect her recipes, Caitlin started to share her beer with friends and fellow trail runners. In late 2015, Caitlin left her job to pursue Sufferfest Beer Company full-time and officially launched her beer to market in May 2016. In 2017, Sufferfest Beer Co. obtained B Corp certification, underlining our commitment to changing our world for the better.
Today, although we’ve grown, we're still a team of fun-loving wanderlusts, thrill-seekers, and go-getters who love to sweat for our beer. Whether you crushed it on the trails, had a big win at the office, flexed your weekend warrior, or shredded the gnar, you deserve a cold one. From us to you: go hard, have fun, and enjoy the sufferfest.

Bee Pollen. Quinoa. Pink Himalayan sea salt. You wouldn’t ordinarily expect to find these ingredients listed on a beer label, but increasingly brewing companies are pushing more “functional” offerings as they look to appeal to consumers seeking healthier alcohol options. It’s a new approach for a growing number of craft breweries, who for years have churned out calorie-dense, barrel-aged stouts, and high-octane IPAs.
