Ale Industries was founded by two friends, Morgan Cox and Stephen Lopas. They met working in production brewing, and although they had no business experience, they both had over a decade of brewing under their belts. Steve and Morgan sold all their worldly possessions and picked up a used brewhouse, signed a lease and started brewing. Their first batch was brewed on March 3rd, 2009! Their company Ale Industries has grown ever since, and in 2014 moved their production into a beautiful 125-year-old building in the Fruitvale district of Oakland, where they focus on unique and vibrant beers.
