Absinthia began making absinthe in 1997, ten years before the ban on absinthe was lifted in the US. She is unique in that she not only makes absinthe but embodies it, serves it, and brings energy to the experience of absinthe. Her knowledge of the history of absinthe is extensive, as is her understanding of the palate of today’s connoisseur of cocktail culture. She has carefully crafted her absinthe using certified organic and biodynamic grapes from California, and certified organic herbs – fresh wormwood (artemesia absinthium), star anise, fennel seed, and coriander seed – from an organic farm in Oregon.
In 2009 Ale Industries set out with a rebellious spirit, an environmentally-conscious endeavor striving to spread the blissful experience of a craft. We unapologetically refuse to let our beers be categorized into styles, types, or profiles because we believe it relegates our vision of craft beer from a verb to a noun, from a spirit to a product. We pioneer brewing technologies to save energy and reduce waste because we understand that investing in the environment will nurture the communities we care about, allowing them to flourish and grow. Oakland, California is our home, where we aim to foster connections with our neighbors and friends. Ale Industries is not just in the business of "producing craft beer." Ale Industries is for the preservation of craft beer and its founding principals: challenging both your and our notion of what beer is, can, or should be.

Bret is the co-founder and winemaker. Growing up in Carmel Valley he developed an early appreciation for the natural beauty of the California landscape. He received a Masters degree in Viticulture & Enology from UC Davis and got his hands dirty interning at Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars in Napa and Domaine des Comtes Lafon in Meursault Burgundy. Upon returning from France, he set out to combine that tradition-steeped approach with his training at Davis in order to create Old World-style yet undeniably Californian wines. Bret's favorite pairing is Côte West Chardonnay with crab cakes.

Our ciders are crafted in small batches (275 gallons or less) from fresh pressed juice. We purchase unfiltered, raw juice from Apple Hill, near Tahoe. Each batch contains a different blend of apples, sometimes up to nine different types! We do not add any funny business- no sulfites, fining agents, artificial ingredients- only real fruit and ingredients. Once our cider has finished fermenting, we do not filter. Full bodied and super drinkable, sometimes cloudy, sometimes bright. Because of our techniques, each cider we release will be a little different from the last cider released. We enjoy variety and the art of making cider and hope you'll appreciate our small batches as much as we do.

Eurydice Manning started James and The Giant Cupcake in the summer of 2008. She had always dreamed of starting her own business and most importantly, putting the magic back into food. Never letting this dream die, a trip to NYC to visit her best friend sparked an interest. Everywhere she went she saw cupcake shops of all kinds- filled with grown-ups. There was a certain childlike excitement that she saw with people eating cupcakes that no other food had done. She wanted to bring that excitement back to the Bay Area, specifically Oakland, her hometown.

The story of Oakland Dust goes back to when I was a child, sitting shotgun outside Flints BBQ in my pop’s idling ’75 Cutlass. Ahh those carefree summer days, the sports legend Bill King on the radio, the scent of mesquite fueled smoke billowing from above. Pop’s would roll to Flints on Shattuck Avenue just about every Sunday, pick-up a full slab, hot links and extra wonder bread to soak up all that goodness. By the time we made it home my lips were smoking hot with half the links already in my belly. And so began my love affair with all foods. I created Oakland Dust for my love of food and for the city I proudly call home, Oakland.

We focus on sourcing the absolute best-tasting version of each individual spice that we can find, which entails working with hundreds of different importers. We grind spices ourselves, in our shop, every week or two. This means the ground spices customers find at Oaktown are bursting with flavor and are far fresher than those found elsewhere.

We make great wines. Really great wines. We don't spend our time writing manifestos, but we do believe that wine should be about what it is, and not what it isn't. And our wine is about solid, endearing, but not overly-extracted fruit; great structure, so you can drink them with food (yes, food!); just the right amount of oak (that is, not enough to get anywhere close to being in the way of the wine); and unique grapes and grape-growers who treat their land like it's your land (not in a bullshit, greenwashing kind of way, but people who actually grow naturally and biodynamically).
That being said, what you like or don't like is up to you... not a book or an instructor or a reviewer, and we make what we like to drink. We drink quite a bit of it.
Rules be damned. Listen to your palate. Not someone else's. If you want to serve red wine with ahi, do it! If you prefer to aerate rather than decant, who are we to argue?

We're doing something remarkable with wine here. We're listening.
