Five Suns Brewing started as a hobby for a group of long time friends. All five of the owners were raised in Martinez and graduates of Alhambra High School.
They started out brewing on a stove top in 2008, spent some years homebrewing in each other's garages, and eventually, shared their beer to support local fundraisers and events in their community.
Five Suns decided to go to the next level by renovating an old building in downtown Martinez which took the greater part of a year...and many, MANY weekends. All five owners worked their day jobs Monday through Friday (and a couple still do), and then, dedicated every single weekend building out the brewery to what you see today. Now, everyone can enjoy our tasting room ambiance, friendly chatter and a cold, local made beer!
At Five Suns Brewing, we create beer that is unique and refreshing in a laid back atmosphere. We are passionate about local craft beer. California has become one of the premier brewing states in the United States and we are excited to be a part of it. Our beers are classic, off-centered, or completely new because we believe variety is the spice of life.
