El Dorado Gold Ale LabelGold was discovered in California at Sutter's Mill in Coloma in 1848. As the news of this discovery spread rapidly across the continent and the globe, immigrants began to pour into the area. That era soon became known as the "Gold Rush" of 1849. Along with their thirst for gold, these immigrants brought many other skills, including the art of brewing. A combination of brewing techniques influenced by both English and German brewers prevailed and was responsible for creating the styles that have dominated this region for over a century. El Dorado Brewing Company has rediscovered the Gold of our heritage in an ale which may be characteristic of the Gold Rush days; properly hopped by British standards, cleanly fermented by German standards, and totally thirst quenching by both historic and modern standards. El Dorado Gold won a Bronze Certificate at the 1997 California State Fair Commercial Brewing Competition in the California Pale Ale Category.
