Pomona Packing Plant?the historic structure that holds Sanctum Brewing Co.?served as a fruit cannery in the days before the Great Depression. Workers there spent their days processing lemons, peaches, snozberries, and other fruits. Today, you can still find fruit at the plant if you look behind a door marked "21." Thats where Jason and Scott, the founders and head brewers of Sanctum Brewing Co., create beers infused with fruits, such as tangerines and apples.
They go far beyond fruit when choosing unique ingredients for their creative beers, though. For example, turnips lend a smooth, earthy flavor to an imperial red ale, and Dutch cocoa deepens the robust taste of a russian imperial stout. Guests can savor these creations?a portion of the proceeds from which are donated to charity?in a tasting room outfitted with a copper-topped bar. In addition, the brewery sometimes hosts art shows and food trucks, such as Haute Burger.
