Brew Coffee & Beer is a local café, located in Downtown Santa Rosa, serving some of the best craft beer and coffee drinks in town. Do not expect to get a blended, double-shot, two-pump caramel, iced whatever with whip on it at Brew. It’s not that kind of place. You can, however, get the most perfectly brewed cup of pour over coffee, made with beans from Ritual Coffee, out of San Francisco. Nestled between their tap selection of some of the best and hard-to-find craft beers in the nation, is their cold brew coffee on tap, which is by far, their most popular drink.
The vibe at Brew is very laid-back, friendly and inclusive of all people. When I asked customers why they like to spend time at Brew, it was clear that everyone felt like this was truly their neighborhood hang out, their home away from home, and they’ve only been in business for a little over a year.
The owners, Alisse and Jessica, have worked in coffee for the majority of their professional careers and are both craft beer lovers. So it just made sense for them to open up a business of their own that celebrates all things brewed. In the beginning it was just the two of them, doing it all, working the front counter, and doing all the ordering. Now, they have put together quite a team of locals who really know their stuff. Their beer-buyer and events coordinator, Fridge, brings so much life and knowledge to their beer program, and rarely carries the same beer twice. Long time coffee roaster, Darren O’Brien just recently joined the team as a new manager as well with over 10 years of professional coffee-roasting under his belt.
If high-quality coffee and beer aren’t enough, the Brew crew just recently updated their kitchen and serve an ever changing, creative menu that includes house-pickled vegetables! Our favorite!
