Our story of Monterey Bay Brewing Company began at the Mammoth Mountain Blues and Brews festival. Mark camped and went to the two day event and experienced how everyone was going Mad over craft beer. Scott and Mark went the next year as well and this is when they knew they wanted to bring this kind of energy and excitement for craft beer to Monterey. Scott and Mark started to homebrew out of their kitchens and it was one early evening on the golf course that the name Mad Otter Ale sprang into Mark’s head and from that point on we knew we had something special.
