Open since 1996, Peter B’s Brewpub was Monterey California’s original craft brewery. Today the brewery boasts an extensive craft beer list, featuring seasonal, flagship, collaboration and limited release beers. Led by Head Brewer, Justin Rivard along with Assistant Brewer, Natalie Mika, and Brent Kordes. Most recently the brewing team took home a Silver Medal at the 2020 Best of Craft Beer Awards for their Soul Sacrifice Chili Pepper Beer.

Peter B’s Flagship Brews are popular favorites among locals and visitors and definitely worth a taste. During your next visit order a tasting flight – then take home a Crowler 3-Pack, Growler or Hydro Flask filled with your new favorite.
