For years, Downtown Joe’s has stood out from wine country as Napa’s leading brew pub. How did this come about?
A Little History
Downtown Joe’s Micro Brew has a history dating far back. Brewing in Napa started mid to late 1800s and by 1895 there were just over 3 breweries with Napa City Brewing and The Brewer’s Collective being the biggest. We’ve estimated they were producing 100,000 bbl per year based on fire insurance records of the floor prints.
Prohibition however brought the end of Napa brewing. It wasn’t until the 1980s that another brewery was started. Napa Valley Brewing Company in 1987 opened its first brewery and in 1988, Willet’s Brewery opened, becoming Downtown Joe’s in 1993.
