Riip Beer Co. is located in Sunset Beach a historic sub-district of Huntington Beach, California directly on Pacific Coast Highway across the street from the Beach & the Bolsa Chica Wetlands.
Riip Beer Company started as a Home Brew Operation on a 20 Gallon Brew Sculpture by More Beer in a Small Garage in Downtown Huntington Beach, California.
Founded by two Brother-in-Laws in 2014, Riip Beer became one of Southern California's first Nano Breweries to hit the rapid growing craft beer scene producing some of the best small batch, hand crafted ales in Orange County. Riip Beer was built organically from the ground up, the same way we craft our beers.
With not enough money to afford the city permits that would allow onsite consumption at our brewery we decided to take our product directly to our customers door. We knew we were creating a superior product and once the community tasted what Riip was Brewing we would gain the respect and reputation we deserve.
Riip Beer started hand delivering Growlers & Bottles of it's beer in an Iconic 1931 Helms Bakery Coach known in Southern California for delivering bread and pastries to the local neighborhoods in the 1930's to 1970's. This coined Riip Beer as the Millennial Milkmen gaining attention from ABC News, LA Times, OC Register, OC Weekly, Playboy Magazine and more.
Other breweries thought we were crazy and our strategy was laughed at not only for delivering beer but for operating on 3bbl Nano Brewing System. We were doubted by many but we didn't care and our passion for our product drove our ambition to keep moving forward quickly becoming the brewery to visit in Orange County.
In 2016 Riip Beer Company for the first time ever entered the notorious GABF (Great American Beer Festival) competition and received a Silver Medal for it's Super Cali IPA in the Uber Competitive American IPA category. Brewed on our 3bbl system Riip Beer became the smallest brewery to ever win a GABF in the American IPA category with over 400 entries from around the globe.
So the next time you are in our neck of the woods, cruising up or down PCH and you feel like a Hoppy West Coast IPA make sure you stop at Riip Beer and check us out. You will not be let down!
