The name, SOLID GROUND, has multiple meanings layered together. SOLID GROUND is a synonym for Earth from which the ingredients are derived and then skillfully crafted into our products. The education and experience that the brewers bring to our Placerville Brewery is the SOLID GROUND from which we are founded. Lastly, but most importantly perhaps, we want our brewery to be a gathering point for families and friends where a SOLID GROUND is created within our own community.
At Solid Ground, one of the renowned Placerville breweries, we are breaking new ground by pushing the boundaries of beer using winemaking techniques; including barrel aging projects and blending wine into beer to create harmonious hybrids. We also remain true to the centuries of brewing traditions of intercontinental beer styles. Every beer and wine placed on our tap list undergoes a collaboration of ideas, recipes, and taste-tests before the final product is poured in the taproom.
Brewers, KC Sare and Scott Johnson are both foothill natives who wish to use their backgrounds and passion to craft quality lagers, ales, innovative beers, and wine for the enjoyment of our community, friends, family, and beyond.
