Brewery History

This Southern California site was once home to the Irwindale Raceway, a 3800 foot NHRA dragstrip from 1965-‘73. In 1980, Miller Brewing Company purchased the land and built the brewery. The brewery sits on 227 acres of land and has approximately 1 million square feet under roof. It is located in the heart of the San Gabriel Valley and is a landmark for many traveling the local 210 freeway.

Brewing & Batching

In Irwindale, our computerized batching/blending room utilizes Proleit Brewmaxx program which is capable of batching and blending alcoholic, non-alcoholic, carbonated and non-carbonated beverages. We are currently batching FMB and are in the process of building neutral malt base fermentation capabilities in addition to expanding our batching capabilities. These Brewing, Fermenting and Filtration capabilities allow us to produce a full range of products including Seltzers, FMBs, spirit-based, wine-based and beer. We use high quality carbon filtered, reverse osmosed and deaerated water that allows us to batch for an exhaustive range of products.
