Previously, the San Jose craft beer scene consists of Uproar Brewing, Clandestine Brewing, Hermitage, The Forager Eatery, Hapa’s Brewing Company, and Santa Clara Valley Brewing. Last month, Camino Brewery and Taproom was added to that list!
Founded by Nathan Poulos and Allen Korenstein, the concept behind Camino Brewery was inspired by the business partners’ 1,900 mile cycling trip along the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage trail in Spain. After experiencing local Spanish cuisine and the friendships that were made throughout the trip, Poulos and Korenstein returned back to the States to brew their own beer at several local Bay Area breweries. Eventually, the team established a following and was able to fund the construction of their own brewery and taproom, which we’ll get to enjoy firsthand this weekend.
Camino partners with local suppliers to create fresh, flavorful craft beer, such as their Café Con Lege Sweet Milk Stout, brewed with single origin coffees from around the world, supplied by Chromatic Coffee.
CAMINO BREATHES NEW LIFE INTO DOWNTOWN SAN JOSE’S INDUSTRIAL AREA
Located at 718 South First Street, Camino Brewery and Taproom is the first development the area best known for its iconic Faber’s Cyclery building has seen in 30 years. It’s even been rumored that Camino may share a courtyard with the beloved former-saloon-turned-bicycle-shop once the Faber building restorations are complete. (For those who don’t know, Faber’s Cyclery was once the longest-operating bicycle shop in California, before a devastating fire destroyed the building in 2013.)
In a recent press release about the brewery, Mayor Liccardo was quoted saying, “I thank Camino Brewery for their investment in San Jose and adding its unique flavor to the growing tapestry of Silicon Valley’s vibrant urban core.” We couldn’t agree more with the mayor’s excitement and look forward to tasting Camino’s unique flavors this Saturday!
