State Brewing Co. is craft brewery located in the South Bay of Los Angeles that is working to bring consumers a variety of high-quality craft beers inspired by L.A. history, culture, and community. The company was born out of the passion for home brewing influenced by founders, Matt Pfeiffer and Blake Shapiro, and has since been fostered by their shared love of craft beer.
The company saw an opportunity to pioneer establishing a craft brewery culture in Gardena in 2015 as it became the first brewery in the City. Due to the rapid expansion of the craft brewery market, Gardena offered a unique opportunity to State Brewing as a location where local consumers had yet to be taught about the processes of both conventional and unconventional brewing.
As a self-distributing company, State Brewing Co. attributes a large amount of their success to their ability to quickly distribute their products to surrounding cities. Gardena’s centralized location within Los Angeles County has proven to be a crucial factor in State Brewing Co.’s profitability which was due to minimized distribution costs.
The company prides itself in its pursuit of introducing consumers to the art of tasting beer rather than merely drinking beer.
