Our story

The name “The Monk’s Cellar” itself is a nod to the brewing traditions of Belgium, a country known for its vibrant beer culture. From his trips to Europe, our founder Andy Klein was inspired to create a place in Placer County where people could meet in a casual, safe environment; where good food and great beer are just part of everyday life.

Like the celebrated beer destinations of Belgium, The Monk’s Cellar is not a place where beer is dissected and endlessly analyzed, but enjoyed one sip at a time. At The Monk’s Cellar our goal is to create a culture where our beer is shared as easily as the conversations, ideas and aspirations of the community. To realize this you’ll not only see our team on your visits to the brewery, but at regional events where we donate our time, beer and resources to build a better, safer, cleaner place we all call home.
