Bringing Sacramento’s Bustling Brewery Scene Home

With more than 60 local breweries around town, Sacramento now competes for the title of fastest-growing brewery scene. It’s all thanks to the bounty of the farm-to-fork movement, locally-sourced ingredients and a roll-up-your-sleeves independent brewer’s spirit. 

You may not be able to belly up at the bar in some cases, but there’s plenty of local beers you can bring home.*  Scope our list for just some of the many fantastic local brew houses offering takeout and delivery! 

Alaro Craft Brewery
Spanish and European inspired ales in the heart of Sacramento. 

“The beer remains the highlight and it always will be in my opinion. The brewer is always coming up with new options and they rarely miss the mark. I’m excited they are expanding their to-go beer selection as well.” – Jeffery L 

Open for pickup, delivery, online orders and gift cards. 

Bike Dog Brewing Co
Founded and “redundantly named” by passionate lovers of bikes, dogs and brewing. What’s not to like? 

“Beer is incredible. One of the best IPA’s I’ve ever had. If my dog was on a bike, he wouldn’t be riding straight.” – Joshua F

Order online for pickup or delivery. 

Burning Barrel Brewing Company
Continually producing a wide variety of excellent ales and barrel-aged beers through their barrel program.

“Stopped by this place with my co-workers the other night for some drinks. I just about had a little bit of everything and I did get a pretty good solid buzz. They have a big broad selection of brew and they all have really interesting names.” – Meena P

Open for beer-to-go and currently shipping throughout California.

Claimstake Brewing
Their mission is to advance the art of craft beer brewing by continually refining their small batches. 

“One of the best IPA selections I’ve had for quite a while. Every one was a very well-made beer that I would be happy to buy draft or in a can.” – Paul C

Pre-order online for 32 oz. crowlers or 4-packs for pickup.

DarkHeart Brewing
They “Dare to Dream and shed light in the Darkness” by making craft beers that delight the soul. 

“Avast! Mateys you wouldn’t believe it, but I like the IPAs here. They’re my least favorite style but at DarkHeart there must be something in the water. I liked every beer I tried, and you best believe I tried them all.” – Jenny P 

Open for takeout and delivery orders seven days a week.  

Device Brewing
Award-winning brews with names like Kid Casual, Pincushion and Brits in Moscow. 

“I liked their take on the IPAs.  Not heavy on the citrus overtones but still with a decent taste that wasn’t too bland.  Definitely suggest any of their locations if you’re a beer hound and want to try their beers.” – Neal P

Open for online orders and pick-up from their 14th Ave. and Ice Blocks taprooms.

Fountainhead Brewing Company
A Sac original with an eclectic selection and the iconic lion’s head logo. 

“What got my attention was not only that the product was stellar, but the story, the branding, the community involvement, and overall awareness of what it takes to lead a successful brewery.” – Claud C

Selling beer to-go from their website or in-person during reduced hours.

Jackrabbit Brewing Company
Belgian, English and German inspired brews made with California-style inventiveness.

“I am a man who loves sours so with three on tap it’s hard to choose which to go with first.  I will also say that they have the best peach ale I have ever tasted and I will definitely be coming back to fill up a growler or two.” – Lawrence S

Shipping cases directly to your door. Or try their drive-up beer stand

Loomis Basin Brewing Company
Independently owned and operated, they strive to keep their beer “Always Fresh, Always Local.”

“Awesome beer, great home like atmosphere. The owners are always there and approachable. I love taking it to the Bay Area to share with friends. They now expect it. I don’t blame them.” – Roger R

Most brews available via online order for curbside pickup. 

Moksa Brewing
Their name is a Hindu term referring to various forms of emancipation, liberation, and release.

“Let me start by saying I’m not a beer drinker. I came here last weekend with my husband so he can give it a try. Well, I did too and I must say The Lush and Aloha State of Mind are now the go to beers for me.” – Beverly C

Now offering to-go beer sales. Pre-orders must be made by 6pm for same-day pickup. 

Out of Bounds Brewing Company
A multi-award-winning local institution – now with two locations. 

“I had the tasting wheel, and I learned that IPAs aren’t created equal, in the least. I found a double that I like (blew my mind honestly… It was the first I’ve found that I did like) the staff were friendly, and knowledgeable of the brews.” – Stephanie K 

All beers currently available to go in growlers or crowlers. 

Porchlight Brewing
This East Sacramento neighborhood brewery is leaving their light on for you. 

A friend suggested we have a virtual happy hour and next thing I know, Tyson delivered to my front porch! As someone who has to self-isolate, the kindness and service of Porchlight and my friend are especially moving and very much appreciated! – Arya M

River Rock Brewery
This Galt-located husband and wife owned brewery has a special focus on supporting home brewers.

Tilted Mash Brewing
A name born when two home brewers accidently turned a keg style mash tun on its side.

Currently open for to-go orders and home deliveries. 

Tower Brewing
A favorite for college kids and families alike and home to the famous Monkey Knife Fight pale ale. 

Looking for the best beer in town and close to Sac State?! Nice atmosphere, good vibe, modern vintage layout, and incredible beer selection. Tons of IPA if you’re a IPA fan.” – Will L
