Five Threads Brewing Company

Although Five Threads Brewing Company in Westlake Village has the look and feel of a hometown brewery, the reality is that this operation is a well-planned brewing company that in the near future will become a household name. In October 2015, Managing Partner and CEO Tim Kazules, along with Co-Founders Michael Pryor and Neil Shirley, officially opened the doors of Five Threads Brewing, LLC and are already seeing amazing growth.

Tim was inspired to start a craft brewery while still in graduate school earning his MBA. A work conference in 2009 took him on a trip to Denver, Colorado – the Mecca of American craft beer. After a trip to The Great Divide craft brewery he had an epiphany. As he put it, “the sky opened up and I could hear the angels singing.” It was then that he realized he was destined to brew beer.

The name Five Threads Brewing is a play on two different beer concepts. A thread is an old term referring to a portion of beer (people used to order a mix of multiple beers at a bar). Five refers to the number of ingredients Tim uses to make beer: water, malt, hops, yeast and the passion of beer brewers and drinkers.

Tim keeps his four flagship beers available on tap all year round and also has two beers on rotation on his “Core Series” taps. All together Five Threads Brewing has produced a total of 11 beers. The brewery is open Wednesday through Sunday and already sees a good crowd on Fridays and Saturdays, despite only being open for six months. The brewery can easily house groups of 20 in addition to its regular crowd and also offers pub-style food, which is delivered from Merlin’s Kitchen a few doors down in the same business complex.

In addition to the brewery, you can also find Five Threads Brewing on tap at various locations throughout the region including Wade’s Wines in Westlake Village, Rusty’s Bar and Grill in Simi Valley and the Dugout in Simi Valley with new locations popping up each week.

Tim said he wants Five Threads Brewery to be a place for beer drinkers of all levels. “My ideal customer is someone who wants to talk craft beer and learn more about it. From the beginners to the beer aficionados,” he said.
