About CBC

In 1890 the finest German beer flowed from the taps of the Chattanooga Brewing Company. We grew into a six-story brewhouse that took up an entire block of Broad Street and produced over 150,000 barrels a year until Prohibition forced the brewery to close. Almost a century later, in 2009, two crafty engineers, brought together by their mutual love for beer, embarked on an adventure to brew something great in the city they both love.

Today, CBC is a historic brewery in Chattanooga’s Southside neighborhood with its own beer production facility. Brewing staff produce a line of core and seasonal “faultless quality” beers that are sold in Tennessee and North Georgia. We also pride ourselves on serving homemade food that is just as well thought out as our beers, using locally sourced ingredients whenever possible.

We are a team of funny, motivated people who are passionate about our history and who work with a culture of responsibility, inclusion and autonomy. We are a laid-back yet professional company that promotes a safe work environment and equal employment opportunities.
