Silverado Brewing Company opened its doors in July 2000. Located on Highway 29 just north of the town of St. Helena in the heart of the Napa Valley, Silverado Brewing Company makes award-winning handcrafted Ales and Lagers for thirsty locals and visitors alike. The full-service restaurant features a menu consisting of a mix of traditional American foods such as steaks, chops, and fresh seafood, along with barbeque - all of which can be enjoyed with Silverado's famous beers. Silverado also has a wine list with many hard-to-find local wines, and a full bar that specializes in hand-shaken margaritas, cosmos, and martinis. For a quick bite or a banquet for 50, you'll receive great beer and wine and unusually sustainable food!

The People
Owners Michael Fradelizio and Ken Mee worked in wineries before opening the popular Silverado Brewing Company. Napa Valley wineries have a slogan It takes a lot of great beer to make good wine, referring to the fact that beer is the beverage of choice during the many sometimes-arduous winemaking tasks. With this in mind and recognizing a shortage of good local beer, Michael and Ken created the new business. They chose as their site the historic Freemark Abbey Winery building from 1895. With massive stone walls and hand-strewn wood beams, the beautiful old building houses Silverado's gleaming copper kettle brewing system behind large glass windows for all to see.

Ken graduated from the American Brewers Guild, and has won numerous awards for his beers (including medals at the California State Fair). Michael has extensive experience in the restaurant industry and a passion for cooking good food with natural and organic ingredients from local sustainable farms and ranches.

When you stop by next time, say hello to Michael or Ken. Maybe they'll buy you a beer!
