Eel River Brewing Company is a larger regional brewery makes a wide variety of beers with a large tap room that is popular with the locals in the Fortuna, California area and people traveling along US 101. The Eel River tap room somewhat has a European chalet feel inside, with several TVs, a large bar and plenty of seating. They also have a large outdoor patio and beer garden with seating and a grass area with lawn games like horseshoes. The tap room itself is filled with memorabilia to commemorate the north coast and the industries that support it, such as logging.

Eel River Brewing’s house brew list is fairly long and it includes a large amount of organic-labeled beers. In fact, Eel River Brewing Company was the first certified organic brewery in the United States, and they obtained the organic certification back in 1999; well before “organic” became a thing. Their taps usually are stocked with beers like Acai Berry Wheat Berry, Amber Ale, California Blonde Ale, IPA, Porter, and Imperial Stout, as well as various seasonal brews.
