Mix a love of beer with a passion for creating, throw in a couple of decades of practice as a homebrewer, a strong sense of personal satisfaction when people appreciate his craft, then sprinkle in a wry sense of humor and you've got a really long sentence. No. You've got a guy who decides to open a comedy club. No. You've got a guy who decides to open a brewery.

Thus is Petaluma Hills Comedy Club. No. Thus is Petaluma Hills Brewing Company, brought to you by JJ Jay.

Located in Petaluma, north of San Francisco, Petaluma Hills Brewing Company started as an idea when, in 2008 while sharing the Big House Blonde in the backyard, a friend suggested to JJ that his beer was good enough to sell. That praise (along with the sudden realization about why he had been invited to so many parties that requested he bring his homebrew) started JJ down the road to eventually starting the company in 2011, raising money in 2012, brewing his first commercial beer in 2013, and quitting his career in animation to become Chief Kettle Cleaner of Petaluma Hills Brewing Company in 2014. View the checklist JJ used during this journey.

Almost all the craft beer recipes at Petaluma Hills are the very same recipes JJ created as a homebrewer. Inspired by his discovery of Pete's Wicked Ale in 1990 and a friend who homebrewed, JJ started brewing his own beer in 1991 and hasn't looked back once. After 10 years, JJ decided it was time to create his own recipes and graduated to an all-grain, 10 gallon, brew system that is still in use at the brewery.
