With more than 1,000 breweries statewide, it’s safe to say that the craft beer movement in California is officially booming. From the state’s northernmost stands of coast redwoods, south to the sun-scorched Mojave Desert, the craft beer movement has reached every corner of the Golden State. The phenomenon didn’t happen overnight. Anchor Brewing (San Francisco) and Sierra Nevada (Chico) kicked things into gear in the 70s and 80s, and now you’ll find vibrant beer scenes in San Diego, Orange County, Sonoma County, Sacramento, and elsewhere.
