Raíces Brewing Company features award-winning craft beers, a rotating Latin American food selection, and on-going cultural events. More than that, Raíces aims to become a reference center to both celebrate and learn about Latin culture.
Raíces, which is Spanish for roots, is the community taproom where culture can be celebrated. For Latinos, the brewery is a place to connect with other Latinos and feel at home with traditional food, music, and culture. For non-Latinos, Raíces is a place where, in addition to enjoying food, events, and beer, people can learn about and experience Latin culture.
