Bixel Brewery


Bixel Brewery has operated continuously as a saloon since 1861! It is located in Columbia State Historic Park.

Columbia, California was known as the “Gem of the Southern Mines” after prospectors discovered gold in the neighboring Sierra Nevada foothills during the California Gold Rush. Those were the days!

Columbia’s historic district includes Bixel Brewery in the old Alberding Building of 1851- a National Historic Landmark! Bixel’s house beers on tap include Columbia Gold (Blonde Ale), Pinelog Pale Ale & Railtown Steamer!

Taster’s choice = Pinelog Pale Ale! Cheers!


Bring the pooch, because Bixel Brewery is dog friendly! They won’t mind at all rolling around the floor among countless discarded peanut shells.


And for the non-imbibing Bixel Brewery patrons, give their house brewed root beer a go!
