Dueling Dogs Brewing company was established in 2014 when Earl, an avid brewer, and Adriana, an avid cider drinker, decided they wanted their son to grow up on a farm, like his father. Their desire to grow mandarins soon transformed into the idea to make beer with their mandarins. Soon their ten-acre property was filled with two acres of mandarins, an acre of hops, a bee yard for honey, a vineyard of grapes, and one beautiful, Italian inspired tasting room.
The Stephens Family, who are loving pet owners, designed the Dueling Dogs’ logo with their two labs—Rocco and Newton—engaged in a beer duel. Sadly, Newton passed away in 2016 before he could see the brewery come to life and greet each customer with his people-loving, lopsided grin. But our beloved playful, gentle giant’s legacy still lives on.
This family run business and farm is dedicated to providing the freshest farm-crafted beers, meads, and ciders available. We use as many hand-picked ingredients from our own farm as possible, and obtain the rest from local Placer Grown farms that we partner with. At Dueling Dogs, you can enjoy our brewery and winery in the same tasting room (Fun Fact: we are one of the few brewing companies in California to have a licensed brewery and winery in the same building).
