Bottoms Up for East Brother Beer Company

East Brother Beer Company

Mill Valley residents Chris Coomber and Rob Lightner have been neighbors for 20 years, and for the past seven they’ve been making beer together. This year they took the dive and opened up East Brother Beer Company, named after the lighthouse north of the Richmond Bridge where their taproom and brewery is located. Neither had professional training in beer making, though Coomber spent the better half of the past decade educating himself about the processes and techniques. The brewery is set to feature a saison, red IPA, red lager, oatmeal stout and pilsner as well as a bocce court, ping-pong table and cornhole game on site.
