Welcome to Dead Oak Brewing Company. We envisioned opening a small, family-owned brewery back in 2011, and at the time, it seemed like a far-off dream. However, in 2016, we decided to risk it all to bring a unique craft beer experience to Atascadero’s Colony District. We love the close-knit community of the Central Coast, and believe a brewery should be a place that brings friends and families together as well as makes great beer.
Owner and brewer Jesse began his brewing career in 2009. Working as a civil engineer and home brewing in his free time, he knew he always wanted to take his hobby to the next level. In 2016, he attended the UC Davis Extension – Master Brewer’s Program and never looked back. Jesse loves brewing fresh examples of some of the oldest beer styles, as well as sharing what he knows about beer and brewing.
At Dead Oak, we’re all about bridging the divide between modern and classic beer styles. We believe that well-made, balanced beers are the way to go. From European lagers to American-style ales of all stripes, we strive to make the best small-batch beers on the Central Coast.
