Knee Deep Brewing Co. is a family run independent Microbrewery that was born in the late Summer of 2010. When Knee Deep first started producing beer we started out “contract brewing” our beers at Mt. Tallac Brewing in beautiful Lake Tahoe. At first we only sold a few styles of beer (kegs only) within the Reno / Nevada market. We soon began to flourish much faster than anticipated, and thats when all the fun started!
In the first quarter of 2011, the company reached an agreement to lease the former Beermann’s Brewery in Lincoln, CA. During the renovation and startup phase Knee Deep’s beers continued to be contract brewed in the Bay Area of California. In May 2011, our first batch of beer was brewed in our Lincoln brewery. Over time we phased out the contract brewing and eventually all our beers were brewed at our Lincoln facility. At that time we had two UC Davis trained brewers operating 7 days a week. At first, our beers could be found throughout California, Arizona, Nevada, Ohio, and Idaho. In 2012 we had started our “Loading Dock Friday Growler Sales”, where it was possible to purchase a growler of the freshest possible Knee Deep beer directly from the brewery (rain or shine.) Growler sales were, as described, conducted at the loading dock, and man those are some amazing memories!
Knee Deep Brewing’s beers have received several awards; most recently and notably, our Breaking Bud IPA taking the Bronze Medal in the American IPA category at the 2016 Great American Beer Festival (you can view all our prestigious awards inside our taproom in Auburn.) Knee Deep Brewing Company has a rapidly growing reputation as we are known for our unique blends and creative outlook on brewing. We take pride in our reputation and strive to continue brewing outstanding craft beers.
Fast forward to 2017, Knee Deep’s beers are now brewed in our 28,000 square foot facility in Auburn, CA. Our 15 barrel brew house has been replaced with a 40 barrel 4 vessel system. Our 15 barrel fermenters are no more and we now ferment our beers in 60, 90, and 120 barrel tanks. Our year round offerings now total 16 and we also produce monthly special releases and seasonal beers. We also barrel age a limited quantity of specialty beers which are periodically released in our taproom. 22oz and 12oz bottles, cans, and kegs, can all be found filled with our wonderful liquid. “Loading Dock Fridays” are gone as well. Instead of standing in a back alley to purchase a growler of our beer, visitors can now purchase growlers, crowlers, bottles, and or cans in our beautiful tasting room (which by the way is larger than our previous Lincoln brewery.) Our tasting room offers an unobstructed view of brewery operations and guests can enjoy samples of our beer while watching us brew, filter, and or even packaging our products. Oh hey, I forgot to mention that our taproom is pet and kid friendly! Thats right, feel free to bring your little ones and furry ones along with you for the fun! Our brewmaster, Dean Roberts, has been with us for 5 years and is continuing our tradition of brewing only the finest craft beers.
We recently celebrated our 7th birthday and we are excited to announce that you can find our beers in 30 different states! Canada, Australia, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, and Singapore are also part of our distribution network with more to come by the end of 2017. The one thing that will not change at Knee Deep is the quality of our product. We continue to brew great beer and receive recognition and awards both locally and nationally.
We have big plans for the 2017 and 2018 year so stay tuned! You won’t want to miss this!!

With co-founder and brewmaster Jeremy Warren out the door, new Knee Deep brewmaster Dean Roberts knows he’s got big shoes to fill. But rather than try to make his own mark, both Roberts and CEO Jerry Moore hope that the newly promoted brewer will just plain stay the course. And why not? In 2015, the brand doubled production, to just under 12,000 barrels, and expanded into five new states.

Upon completion of the transaction, Moore will wholly own Knee Deep, the pair said.
