Peter Blackwell and his wife, Rosemary, set out in early 2000
to create an authentic English-style brew for Monterey Bay.
Using traditional ingredients straight from England they now host more than 10 different styles.
Since then, they have been able to celebrate 22 amazing years led by Brewery Manager and daughter, Karen Blackwell-Harrison. Karen leads from the front having only recently “retired” from the bartending life at their Marina location.
You can find all 3 of them frequently at the Brewery with a giant smile and a happy hello!
Not only is this a family-run business, but locals and all those who visit are considered family as well. Whether this is your first time or 1000th visit, you are always welcomed with a warm smile from patrons and staff combined.
One of the unique aspects of English Ales is the Mug Club. Patrons are able to purchase a specialty mug that they get to reuse every time they frequent the location.
More than 2000+ mugs hang from the roof. This is surely a sight to see and an awesome welcome “Home”.
The good times don’t stop at just the Beer. English Ales is also very connected with its community. From running special parties for friends and family to fundraisers for non-profits and local charities.
English Ales is also very festive throughout the year! Hosting an annual Scare-E-Okie, Holiday Pub-Deco, and every sporting and themed event you can celebrate.
More can be said, but we want to share it with you!
Come by for a pint! We are proud of our 22 years of service and look forward to sharing the many fun memories with you!
Good Food. Good People. Good Beer.
