805 is driven by the lifestyle and ethos of the people from California's Central Coast, the Authenticos are free spirited and rooted in rugged individualism. As 805 expanded beyond our humble upbringings we connected with so many others that were cut from the same cloth. 805 has become an expression of these people and to all of those who share that same spirit and enjoy our beer.

Commercial fisherman by trade and big wave surfer by choice, this California native has found the true balance and meaning in working hard and playing harder.
