Our Name is Rich in History!

1854 – The Solano Brewing Company was founded in 1854 by German immigrant, Charles Widenmann. The brewery gained popularity in the late 19th century and became renowned for its steam beer.

Charles and his brewers produced up to 6,000 barrels a year and had their own Malt House which sat between Georgia and York Street in Vallejo.

1918 – After 64 years of business, production came to a screeching halt when General Order No. 99 (Prohibition in the Navy) was sent out and ultimately forced Charles to shut down Solano Brewing Company in 1918.

After almost a century of dormancy, two Solano County natives, who unearthed the history of SBC, decided to pick up where Charles left off and re-imagined what Solano Brewing Company could become in this exciting new time of Craft Brewing.

2015 – In 2015, Randy Dawson and Sean Bonifacio collaborated with the goal of creating a local, excellent quality beer with hometown roots, the outcome was Solano Brewing Company, LLC.  Fortunately, their paths crossed with Brian Bell and the fun began! Brian is the Founding Brewer who currently still brews part time. He has been the Catalyst to making SBC what it is today.

Solano Brewing Company currently brews and operates on a 20-acre parcel of land located at 5500 Weber Road in Vacaville.
