About The Owners
The idea to open South Lake Brewing Company came naturally from Chris and Nicole's passion and love of Lake Tahoe. In 2009, at college on the Central Coast, Chris was first introduced to homebrewing and eventually got a job in the craft beer industry. During one of their many visits to a favorite craft beer bar, Chris and Nicole dreamed up the idea to open a brewery. Inspired by the beauty, adventure, and community of their mountain hometown - it only seemed natural to start this dream in South Lake Tahoe.
For the last several years Chris and Nicole have taken their idea, their dream, and made it into South Lake Brewing Company. In the Fall of 2015, they moved from Southern California back to their hometown to start establishing the roots of SLBC and dive deeper into the craft beer community. It took two more years, but in April 2017 - the doors of their brewery finally opened!
