Rio Salado Brewing Company
According to the Arizona Republic newspaper, brewmaster Tim Gossack brewed for the Deschutes Brewery in Bend, Oregon from 1990 through 1996. In 1996, Tim left the Deschutes Brewery to open Rio Salado Brewing Company by purchasing Seideman Brewing from Russ Seiderman who started the original brewery in 1996. The brewery and associated tap room was located in South Tempe, Arizona. In December 2002 Rio Salado purchased the Mill Avenue Beer Company in downtown Tempe as a second location. He also started distributing bottles locally. In 2005, he shut down the company.
Rio Salado received a silver prize at the 2004 Great American Beer Festival in the category of French and Belgian-Style Saison for their Saison de Carbs.
