Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. was founded by father and son team, Jim and Jaime Dietenhofer, in 2010. With a passion for craft beer, they set out to pay homage to the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley with handcrafted beer and hand-drawn artwork depicting the local landscape on their labels.
Named after the mountain seen from their family home in Los Olivos, Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company opened in Buellton, California with only a handful of employees. In a short five years, the company has grown to become one of the fastest growing craft breweries in America and now has a staff of over 200 which they affectionately call the #FigFam.
There are currently six taprooms along California’s Central Coast. Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. beer can be found in their taprooms or at select retailers and restaurants throughout California.
Born and Raised In the Santa Ynez Valley
Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. planted its roots in the heart of Santa Barbara’s wine country nestled in the valley below Figueroa Mountain, home to three generations of the Dietenhofer Family. Inspired by historical locations settled by pioneers and travelled by those with an adventurous spirit, FigMtnBrew works with the finest quality ingredients and pays homage to its homeland by making award-winning craft beer worthy of its namesake.
