Mraz Brewing Company is actually located about 12 miles outside of Placerville, in El Dorado Hills. Michael Mraz is the owner and it’s a family business as his younger brother Brandon, and Michael’s son Justin comprise the Staff at Mraz. Funny thing how we even went to Mraz as they were not originally on our appointed list. However, we had some time to kill, and Matt spotted this new establishment (opened on May 1st) nearby, and he went in to assess their interest in partnering as a co-sponsor with “Beer on a Roll”. Michael agreed to participate, so we quickly went to work! Michael was great in that he really gave a detailed tour of his small/modest brewery and of course, provided some samples of his craft beer. Please read the blog for more details!
Here is a pic of Michael and his son Justin working behind him.
Even the bike needs to relax and kick back at the bar.
Placerville, CA. In the Gold Rush days (late 1840’s), the town earned its most common historical name, “Hangtown”, because of the numerous hangings that had occurred there.
