Chino Valley Brewery opened in July 2012 offering, becoming Ontario’s newest microbrewery.
The brewery was founded by co-owners Matthew Maldonado and Ray Duran, old friends and retired law enforcement officers. Matt, as he prefers to be called is also a home brewer with 25 years of experience.
This experience shows, as the tastinr room served only high quality micorbrews. Our favorites were the Butterfield Blonde and the hopppy Route 83 Ale. The tasting room also features guest taps from other local breweries in Southern California.
Despite high demand for this beer, don’t expect to find these suds flowing at your nearby restauarant or bar very soon. Right now, the brewing system is just 26 gallons – a little less than two kegs for each batch. At that rate, they can barely supply their small but packed tasting room. As they expand to a larger system, their distribution will increase.
The tasting room and brewery are located in a light industrial area near the Ontario Airport at 1630 E Francis St, Ste J, Ontario, CA 91761. If you aren’t in the Ontario area, keep an eye out of this brewery at local beer fests.
Co-owners Matthew Maldonado iinsists that fans of the brewery can “only tell one person.” Beyond that, he won’t be able to keep up the brewing capacity. Unfortunately, the word may have already leaked out in the LA Times, Daily Bulletin and Beer Pulse.
