Founded in 2018, Ogopogo Brewing is San Gabriel’s first craft brewery. Brewer-Owners Jason De La Torre and Ryan Edell are veterans of the Southern California brewing industry (Mason Aleworks, Saint Archer, Golden Road), and have a fondness for folklore, mythology, and palindromes. The beers are named for legendary creatures and figures from around the world, with the style of beer and/or ingredients used often linked through the country of origin. In their first year of operations, they were awarded a silver medal in the Belgian Witbier category at the 2019 Great American Beer Festival for Boeman Belgian White Ale and received the same medal again in 2020.
