Craig Scharton Writer for
Full Circle is focused on making great beer and creating a fun environment through entertainment and events. They started by hiring experienced local brew master Mike Sumaya, and have upgraded their equipment and are dramatically expanding their production capabilities. Their beers are getting rave reviews, especially the Juicy, a Northeast IPA, and Cluster Fuggle, a cream ale that’s brilliantly clear, light, and crisp – an ale version of an American Lager. These styles are gaining in popularity on the West Coast and Full Circle has been ramping up to keep up with demand.

Best Brewery in the Central Valley! Full Circle is my friends and my favorite bar! We're there every week. The best craft beers all ended one roof. Nice big open space. Good atmosphere. Great bar staff. They also have amazing house brewed root beer!! 10 stars!!
Arthur Moye CEO of Full Circle Brewing Co.
We are humbled by the community’s response, happy to welcome our new investors, and ready to put the capital to work. We see a bright future for Full Circle, downtown Fresno, and Chinatown.

We recently had the privilege of being taken to the Full Circle Brewing Co Ltd, in Fresno to watch a friend and his band - Electraglide. A seedy part of town is home to this hidden gem. Fitted out in eclectic and eccentric decor, it's the perfect venue. On tap is their range of boutique beers. They also make an exceptional pomegranate mead that I can personally vouch for! A great way to get to know the beers is with their 'Sampler' - exactly that, a sample of each beer, from light ales to the darkest stout. Bill, the brewer, is a great guy - welcoming, and involved with each of his customers. A great night had by all!

Service - The owner gave us everything we needed, was extremely accommodating, and knew his stuff. The conversation and explanation of the beers was incredible, one of the best I have ever received at any brewery. Price - definitely get the sampler on your first visit...12 to try all of the beers (48oz worth) You may be able to get half pours on the sampler if the circumstances warrant. Beer - I loved some, liked some, and didn't like some. Just how it should be. All of their beers are lightly carbonated (which I really like) and some of them have been aged for years to give them a great flavor. Overall - I cannot wait to go back. You must try these beers and visit this place.
