Pyramid has been proudly brewing quality beers in the Pacific Northwest since 1984. Our heritage has been built on award winning brews worth sharing with friends.


Behold the new Pyramid! The great beer within continues to be as skillfully brewed as it’s always been, with a new wardrobe that reflects the rich brewing heritage we’ve been proud to build since 1984. We’re so excited to bring you more news, new beers, and numerous toasts throughout the upcoming year.

The Pyramid Brewery opens in Berkeley, CA. Built in an old warehouse with a parking lot cinema screen, our new facility shares startlingly fresh microbrews with all of California and the Southwest.

We begin as Hart Brewing, Inc., founded by Beth Hartwell, who launches our flagship brand of Pyramid ales. We find our home on the banks of the Columbia River in Kalama, WA. Our inaugural Pyramid beer, Pale Ale, is one of the first American microbrews.
