Our Team

Our journey began with a vision to produce Superior Quality Brews for the craft beer community. We incorporated the proverbial Three Monkeys into our brewery logo as a representation of everything that is good about our life, business & delivering a world class taste in every beer. Hear no evil, See no evil, Speak no evil, Just Damn Good Beer!

The Story of Three Monkeys Brewing Company

  • Our Beginning…

In late 2008, Founders Michael Tate and Craig Meacham met on the job and started talking about investing in something special due to our ailing economy. Their conversations led to the idea of creating a company that produced superior quality craft beer and ale that had the ability to connect with people both domestically and internationally. Craig Meacham brought forth the original idea of Three Monkeys from artwork he had created decades earlier for possible music business logos. Michael Tate-Founder had a background in home brewing from an early age using home brew beer kits. With Craig’s artwork and Michael’s knowledge of beer we had the perfect combination for success. The cultural belief system surrounding Three Monkeys from India, China, and Japan dates to 5th century B.C. and is pretty much known to all. With that, we knew we had a Juggernaut in marketing and advertising built into a symbol collected worldwide. We then decided to launch our craft beer company, Three Monkeys Brewing Company. As an educator, Craig Meacham had an extensive background in art history and with graphics arts. Craig’s branding ideas have subsequently enabled us to connect with people everywhere in our craft beer community. With Michael’s contribution to beer formulation and Craig’s artwork our foundation was in place and Three Monkeys brand was born, along with our Motto, "Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil”. We took this universal message of peace with its belief system and crafted it into our products and how we professionally manage our company business. This also speaks to our conscious concern with our need for environmental sustainability.

Our Journey…
It has been a long rewarding Journey and we are excited about our road ahead. We began our humble beginnings Home Brewing at Craig Meacham’s house on 20 acres in Mariposa, CA, utilizing a burner, pot, buckets, basic equipment and a California ABC brewing license. This enabled us to brew our beer in small batches from a small structure built by Founders Michael Tate and Craig Meacham. This was our first step in entering the wholesale Craft Beer marketplace. After doing extensive research looking for contract brewers, we came across Devils Canyon Brewing Company, San Carlos, California (CA). There, we were able to brew our first commercial IPA and learn some aspects of brewing applications, hardware setup, bottling, scheduling, contracting and brewing in small batches. We learned of event tie-ins that would build growth and the adoption of our products virtually overnight through word of mouth and face to face marketing. Special thanks to Chris Garret, Owner of Devils Canyon Brewing Company, San Carlos, CA and Hermitage Brewing, San Jose, CA, for their contributions and support in helping us to get our finished product to the marketplace. We also thank, Michael Hall, Master Brewer and Matt McDougall, Brewer for their initial contributions in assisting us to build our formulations and signature beers that are sold to this very day. But most of all we thank our incredible "Three Monkeys Brew Crew" and management team that has put in countless hours of sweat equity and investment, along with the Founders. Without our team we would not have realized the success that made Michael and Craig’s dream a reality. As a community-oriented company, Three Monkeys Brewing Company cares deeply about sustainability and our community service.

First, we had to bring forth our globally accepted branding concept, that would compete and capture the craft beer communities attention!

Back in late 2008, I met a friend on the job and we started talking and pondering about beer and beverages, due to the ailing economy. The conversation led to creating and investing in a beer company that produced superior quality brews that had the ability to connect with  people on a mass scale domestically and internationally. My friend and colleague, Craig Meacham, Founder, brought forth the idea and concept, originally called Two Monkeys Brewing. We pondered for a bit and felt we needed to expand the concept and idea. So Michael Tate-Founder had a small background in home brewing at a early age of 16 on a test beer kit. It was out of pure curiosity that led Michael Tate and Craig Meacham to conduct additional searches online to tie our brand together with craft beer. Lo and behold we discovered a pre-existing cultural belief system called the Three Monkeys, that was out of the Tibetan region in China, dating back to 6 B.C. and earlier in world history.  At this point we knew we had discovered a Juggernaut in marketing and advertising already built into the symbolization that is collected worldwide. Our branding ideas came easy at this point enabling us to connect with people in the craft beer community effortlessly. So we decided to launch our craft beer company, called Three Monkeys Brewing Company. At this time Craig Meacham - founder, had a huge back ground in the Three Monkeys background, art, history, graphics imagery, pre-post production experience and educated on this finding. The Three Monkeys brand was born overnight, along with our Motto "Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil..Just Damn Good Beer! Because this is what we deliver from a American stand point. We took the good values and understanding from this universal message of peace and crafted it into our beer processes, staff protocol and how how we as a company respectfully treat people and professionally manage our business on a day to day basis. View the final logo branding concept that defines our company to this day! 

Wow! Three Monkeys Superior Quality Craft Beer is a instant success with the crowds!

Our Debut…

Three Monkeys Superior Quality Craft Beer was an instant success with the crowds! In 2009 Three Monkeys became an authentic brewing company when our first craft beer offerings debuted in 2009 at Chuckchansi Park Stadium in Fresno California, home of the Fresno Grizzlies a Semi-pro Baseball team. We served five amazing craft beers (American Pale Ale, Brown Barrel Ale, Gold Monkey IPA, Red Irish-Style Ale, Tres Vaqueros Amber Ale) that were an instant hit among the thousands attending. Our five beer stations had lines that looked a mile long that day. We received countless fans and overnight success. We had comments all day long that we had the best beer including pictures with fans, photo ops, merchandise sales and vendor inquiries to purchase our craft beer for their establishments. The excitement surrounding our beers continues to this day.

First Craft Beer Taproom Opened in Madera, California.

Our Tap Room…

We Opened our very first Taproom December 2010, called the Three Monkeys Craft Brew House, located in Madera, California. We introduced an impressive lineup of Superior Quality Brews that hit with instant success among the many served at this location. This initial location allowed us to market and advertise to the general public and create growth with a massive following. We sold 16-oz pints on tap, beer in ½ gallon growlers, packaged 6 Pack – 12-ounce, 22-ounce singles, 12 Pack - 22-ounce cases, T-shirts and a host of other Three Monkeys merchandise. As a community-based brewery we conduct events and connected with our Central California community supporting many non-profit causes both here and in Nevada.
