About Eight Bridges Brewing:  Eight Bridges is a family owned, self-distributing production brewery and tasting room established in February 2014 in Livermore, California.  Justin Beardsley, the brewmaster, has more than 7 years experience designing and brewing award winning beers.

His degree in Zoology gives him the knowledge to understand the biological and chemical reactions involved in the cooking, fermentation, and post-fermentation processes of beer making as well as the microbiology and organic/bio chemistry lab procedures and equipment used in beer making. Their beers use malt/grain, hops, and yeast from around the world to achieve beer that people enjoy drinking and talking about. From light lagers to dark ales, all are distinct in flavor characteristics and are multi-dimensional, with a focus on drinkability and freshness. Some are blends of styles, where flavors complement each other to offer a unique experience. All their beers are brewed with no compromise while focused on sustained and consistent beer quality and a commitment to limited release and seasonal beers that are memorable. Their wonderful tasting room is designed to offer visitors a chance to get the feel of a brewery.  And like the Beardsley family, it is welcoming, and a comfortable place to taste new beer, fill up a growler, and just enjoy some awesome conversation and fun with family and friends. Plus with a degree in Zoology, you know they love animals.  Stop by, meet their family dogs and cheers to an adventure together cruising through majestic Alaska!
