A former volunteer firefighter in Maryland, Fleischer started homebrewing after moving to California eight years ago only to find a burgeoning brewing scene. While opening a brewery was not his original motivation for moving to California, he quickly set his sights on honoring the men and women who risk their lives daily by brewing and naming his beers under the Hook & Ladder name.
The brewery was just a concept in 1998, but by the end of 1999, the Hook & Ladder Brewing Company had served its first beer! Located in Oakland, they are in the heart of the Northern California brewing scene.
All of Hook & Ladder's brews follow the firefighting theme, with Backdraft Brown and Grassfire Wheat as their flagship beers.
