Our Story

It starts on a bike.

Our story started with a group of friends biking through Arcadia. They were looking for a casual spot to stop for a beer, and they ended up talking about the kind of place they’d like to see in the neighborhood. That idea was O.H.S.O., and in 2011 we opened our first location in Arcadia.

We started with one simple goal: to create a place where our neighbors could enjoy good company and great beer in a fun environment. That’s it. That’s all we wanted, and now, over 10 years later, we have 4 locations in the valley (including a distillery!), and we are still going strong! But as much as things have changed, one thing has stayed the same: our love for our community. We’re locally owned and operated for a reason. We know what makes your neighborhood unique… and we consider it our mission to support it in any way we can!


It takes a community to raise a brewery!

We always knew our neighbors were special. But it wasn’t until we started working with our community that we realized what an impact you would have on us and how much you would help us grow into the business we are today.

You are why every location offers parking for your bike, treats for your pup, and games for your kids. You are why we support local schools and raise awareness for national causes like suicide prevention. You are why we were able to keep our doors open and our staff employed through COVID.

You have given us so much, and that is why we want to give back. Each location hosts regular events in partnership with local schools and nonprofits to raise funds and awareness. We’re always looking for new partnerships and ways to give back, so if you have an idea, we’d love to hear it!

What does O.H.S.O. stand for?
Outrageous Homebrewer’s Social Outpost
We believe that the best brews are made with friends. We wanted a place where homebrewers and curious neighbors could come in and make their own beer. That is why we created our “Brew with Us” program in Arcadia. Guests come in and brew a beer from start to finish, name it and come back with their friends and family for a tapping party.


Meet Our Community Director
Kathy has been with us since the beginning, as a bartender and now as Community Director and dog consultant. She has years of experience working with MCACC and many other non-profit rescues in the valley. She not only guides us on how to keep our dog-friendly patio safe, but she helps us create valuable partnerships in the community. She organizes O.H.S.O.’s fundraising events and donations for local organizations.


What is 988
Six years ago, we brewed our first batch of “1-800-273-TALK” in the hopes to spread awareness and start conversations. Last year, over 75 other local & national partners featured a beer named with the Hotline number: 1-800-273-TALK. Portions of beer sales were donated to suicide prevention organizations, but the primary goal was to spread awareness and start conversations. One conversation can save a life. Research shows that acknowledging and talking about suicide may reduce rather than increase suicidal ideation. Understanding the issues concerning suicide and mental health is an important way to take part in suicide prevention, help others in crisis, and change the conversation around suicide.

The owner of O.H.S.O. Brewery, Jon Lane, comes from a family of educators. That is why O.H.S.O. Brewery is such a strong supporter of our schools and their staff. We host annual school fundraisers and work with the local PTO to help create events that bring the community together. We love getting to be part of the fun!
