A small company with big ideas.
Mike and Lisa Hinkley took their interest in the craft beer industry to a new level in 2002 when they founded Green Flash Brewing Company. Former pub owners, Mike and Lisa jumped into brewing, and in 2004 renowned brewmaster Chuck Silva joined the team.
We began brewing premium style beers, modern twists on traditional styles, and our beers began to develop a following. Cutting edge brews, Green Flash Brewing Company’s beers don’t fit traditional guidelines; instead we let our hybrid, benchmark beers blaze their own trail.
Located in San Diego, CA, we specialize in brewing assertive and distinctive beers such as our West Coast IPA, an award-winning beer whose wide acceptance has helped define a category. We also brew seasonal, collaborative, and barrel-aged beers.
In 2015 Brewmaster Erik Jensen took the reins, and is leading the creation of our current lineup. Our award-winning beers are on draft and bottled, and are available throughout the United States in bars, restaurants, and retail outlets.
