Our Culture

The mission of Rusty Truck Brewing Company is simply to brew great beer in a great place. The cool climate, access to wonderful water and the best Oregon grown hops, makes Oregon, and especially the Oregon coast, a great place to brew great beer.

We strive to use the best possible natural ingredients and old fashioned hands on brewing methods to make small batches of unique, distinctive and great tasting brews.

At the same time, we are striving through our enterprise to help our local economy by increasing tourism, providing local employment and supporting other local businesses and community based charitable organizations.
