Located in Ukiah, California, just two hours north of San Francisco in Mendocino County, where over 30% of local wine grapes are grown organically, Ukiah Brewing Co. & Restaurant is the first Brewpub and only the second restaurant in the United States to be certified organic. The California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) officially granted the family-owned small business their certification in July 2001.
The Cooperriders roots go back over 40 years in Mendocino County, where Els’ father started a vineyard while her mother taught school in Ukiah. Els and husband Allen both worked as biologists across the West before returning to the county in 1990, a year before the California Organic Food Act passed and ten years before the USDA released their organic standards.
Hours Open: Open at 11:00am everyday; Kitchen closes at 9:00pm Sunday – Thursday and 9:30pm on Friday & Saturday; Bar closes at 9:00pm on Sunday, 11:00pm Monday – Thursday, and 1:00am on Friday & Saturday or any night with live music.
Since the entire facility is certified organic, all of the ingredients used in the restaurant and brewery must be grown and produced on certified organic farms without the use of artificial or toxic chemicals. A long list of pesticides, food additives, and artificial preservatives is prohibited. Even cleaning and sanitization procedures must be monitored and enforced.
