California’s Great Beyond

Craft Beer and Spirits

Local brews with phenomenal views

With some of the best water around, Mono County has a thriving and ever-growing craft beer and spirits scene. Eight outstanding establishments are all within about an hour's drive along US 395 and together are known as the Eastern Sierra Spirit and Ale Trail

Big Meadow Brewing Co. in Bridgeport and June Lake Brewing in June Lake are beloved community hubs. 

In Mammoth Lakes, grab a craft beer at Distant Brewing or Mammoth Brewing Company, or sample locally-made liquor at Shelter Distilling (they have craft beer too) and Devils Creek Distillery.

Head south on US 395 to Bishop in neighboring Inyo County - home to Mountain Rambler Brewery and Owens Valley Distilling Co.!

Most of Mono County’s breweries and distilleries have indoor and outdoor seating, and many serve food or work with neighboring restaurants and food trucks so you can sip and snack at the same time. Can't make it to all? Most have their beers and spirits available at local stores or on-tap local restaurants, be sure to ask!
