Sacramento has a long history as a beer town. Before Prohibition, Sacramento breweries such as Buffalo Brewing Company (now the site of The Sacramento Bee) and beers made by Swiss immigrant Capt. Frank Ruhstaller took advantage of the region’s agricultural bounty, making Sacramento the largest beer production spot west of the Mississippi.
Prohibition came, and the land formerly used to grow hops was converted to other crops, helping California grow a rich variety of produce, including almonds, pears, tomatoes and so much rice that today it is actually exported to Japan for use in sushi.
