In late 1997, after the existing owners unable to make the brewery profitable, offered brewer Daniel Del Grande the opportunity to take over the lease on the building and hence take over the business as well. Dan took them up on it and began major renovations. He gutted the interior and overhauled both the kitchen and the brewery. The "new" brewery includes a new brewhouse, cylindro-conical fermenters, and a new bottling line to brew and bottle their unique ales.
In 1999, Del Grande hired Chef Geoffrey Deetz to design a menu to complement their beers. The Express Newspaper classified their menu as "Extreme Cuisine". Their menu is classified into three categories - International Pizzas, Trans-Global Tacodillas, and Pan-Ethnic Mussels. Their food and brews add to a uniqueness that can only be found in Berkeley, CA.
Some of Bison's unusual award winning ales include a honey-basil ale, a pecan smoked scotch ale, a Coriander Rye, a Gingerbread Ale and our favorite…the Chocolate Stout featured this month! Each are the creations of Bison's current talented head brewer, Scott Meyer.
