Stereo Brewing Company in Placentia was born after a long night of listening to great vinyl and drinking great beer. Rick Smets, now owner and brewer wanted a way to mix his love for music with his lifelong passion for brewing.
As a writer, I draw a lot of parallels with beer and music. They’re both man-made art, analog, and evocative. Just as I can remember songs I listened to with friends twenty years ago; their beats, lyrics, and bass lines…I can remember beers I’ve had on camping trips decades ago. Tying these two brain-banks together is Stereo Brewing in Placentia.
