The RT Rogers Brewing Company is Converting 
Part of the Old Griffin Lumber Yard Into a 
Craft Brewery Sierra Madre, California - March 
4, 2017 - A craft brewery is landing in Sierra 
Madre’s Carter Yard on Montecito Avenue. 
The RT Rogers Brewing Company will hold a 
small groundbreaking ceremony on March 4th 
and has already started converting two units 
on the property of what was once the Griffin 
Lumber Company into a production brewery 
and taproom, which will hopefully be ready for 
opening by late summer 2017. 

 As part of the growing expansion of local 
craft breweries across Southern California, The 
RT Rogers Brewing Company will be opening 
in a unique space for this industry. The Carter 
Yard location features large windows that will 
provide natural light as well as an outdoor 
patio area with plans to feature a quoits pit so 
patrons can play the horseshoes like game. 

 While construction is taking place, brewer 
Ryan Rogers is working on beer plans: “Right 
now we’re finishing up testing on a milk stout 
recipe and we have plans to offer French and 
Belgian styles as well.” 

 The RT Rogers Brewing Company will 
open with a 4 barrel brew system and aims to 
produce beer to support the taproom as well as 
distribute to local pubs and restaurants in Sierra 
Madre, Arcadia, Pasadena, and the greater San 
Gabriel Valley. Patrons will be able to enjoy 
their beer in the taproom and take some home 
in a growler or crowler. To establish a family 
friendly environment children are allowed as 
long as they are accompanied by a parent. Food 
will not be served but patrons are welcome to 
bring their own food or order from any of the 
great take-out or delivery options in Sierra 
Madre. On occasion, catered vendors will be 
on site. 

 The RT Rogers Brewing Company intends to 
become an active member of the Sierra Madre 
community by sponsoring and participating in 
local events and activities. About the RT Rogers 
Brewing Co: The RT Rogers Brewing Company 
is a production craft brewery and taproom 
under construction in Sierra Madre, California 
with a planned opening of late summer 2017
