The spirit of Dust Bowl Brewing Company was born decades ago thanks to one family’s unwavering passion for adventure and immeasurable dedication to one another. The tale begins back in the 1930s when the Tate family loaded their Model A and left Oklahoma for a journey that would prove fruitful for generations to come. The Great Depression coupled with life in the Dust Bowl corridor nearly dried up everything the family had…except , of course, their thirst for success and love for each other. Grandpa Tate was a real-life hobo, riding the rails in pursuit of work and a few dollars to feed his family. Ultimately the Tates survived and settled in California where they raised their children to appreciate hard work, love for family, a hearty sense of humor, and a craving for new frontiers.
