SoCal Manufacturers Catch the Spirit of Made in California

Posted by Carrie Pittman

Southern California manufacturers experienced another great Made in CA Open House at Twisted Manzanita Spirits & Ales on April 29, 2014 in Santee, CA.  A total of 48 attendees representing 31 different manufacturers and organizations attended the event. 

A few manufacturers displayed their products – from specialty candy to boxes.  But, the biggest hit was the tasters provided of the various brews…compliments of the host.

Manzanita’s President, Jeff Trevaskis, gave several tours of his facility and showcased his unique spirits and ales made on site.

About Twisted Manzanita


california made products beer ales brewery twisted manzanitaTwisted Manzanita Ales was built on the idea that great beer is crafted with both passion and creativity.  In 2010, Manzanita opened its doors with a three-barrel brew house, however in a little more than a year we began construction on our much larger facility. We recognize that craft brewing is an art that requires tremendous attention to detail and extensive involvement from our brewers in every aspect of the process.  In response to that need, we have created a space for our brewers to think outside the box and use new and interesting ingredients sourced both locally and internationally.  This is the driving force behind Manzanita’s ability to deliver products of the highest caliber.
