West Coast Brewing is a Japanese brewery located in Mochimune, in Shizuoka, Japan. West Coast Brewing is located in the coastal area of Yoso, in Suruga-ku, Shizuoka, in a new tourist facility that was renovated from a building that was previously used as a tuna processing plant, with the building being left unused for more than a decade since the traders withdrew in around 2005 due to the tightening of international tuna catch regulations. West Coast Brewing is made up of a team consisting of three brewers, Satoshi Niwa, the brewing manager, Cedric Mell, a French brewer, and Grant Scholler , an American brewer, and is owned by Derrek Buston, who is also owner for the bar TWELVE in Shizuoka city. Niwa-san joined West Coast Brewing in December 2018, with Cedric joining later on, and Grant joining in 2019. West Coast Brewing obtained their brewing license in July 2019 and since then, have been focussed on mainly making IPAs and the kind.
