Straight from the Tap

In and around Downtown Redding, locals have turned their passion for homebrewing into a vibrant craft beer scene. Ale House Pub is the oldest brew pub in Redding. Cedar Crest Brewing celebrates local flavors flowing into their growlers. Fall River Taphouse is as fresh as it gets, with a beer-only menu right from the source. You can enjoy a drink from Mt Shasta Brewing Company, set in an old creamery, or order a pint pulled from one of the 24 taps at Final Draft Brewing Company. Enjoy some nibbles alongside the ales at Woody’s Brewing Company, an award-winning, family-run business that showcases the true spirit of Redding.
