About Us

Innovation Brew Works (IBW) is a professionally managed café and brewery located at Innovation Village on the Cal Poly Pomona campus.

IBW serves as a learn-by-doing brewery laboratory for Cal Poly Pomona students, alumni, faculty and the general public. Echoing the learn-by-doing philosophy of Cal Poly Pomona and corresponding with the brewery's official tagline "Crafting an Education," students acquire hands-on experience with brewing and brewpub operations at the brewery.

Innovation Brew Works merchandise including apparel, pint glasses and refillable growlers are for sale on location.

Unlike other craft breweries, we serve food! Customers have the option to build their own custom personal pizza by selecting their sauce, cheese, meat, and veggies. We also serve salads and fresh sandwiches!

Connection to Cal Poly

Grist, or spent grain (the leftover malt and adjuncts after the mash has extracted most of the sugars, proteins and nutrients) from our brewery is fed to the cows, managed by the College of Agriculture at Cal Poly Pomona. Seasonal produce grown on our campus can also be seen featured in select dishes throughout the year.

Innovation Brew Works beers are distributed and served at fine restaurants on and off campus including the Claremont, Pomona and La Verne areas.

Craft Beer

Innovation Brew Works offers a variety of beers, all named after prominent figures of the university as well as the city of Pomona. All beers brewed at Innovation Brew Works contain Cal Poly Pomona barley grown at Spadra Ranch, an off-campus plot of land used by the College of Agriculture near Pomona Boulevard and Temple Avenue. In addition, all oranges used in the beers are grown on the university campus itself.
