Executive Chef Patrick Harrity of Cold Water Brewery grew up east of San Francisco in Brentwood, California where he began his culinary career working in a small butcher shop and BBQ restaurant. Harrity attended Sonoma State University before making the move to South Lake Tahoe five years ago. Since then he has worked for some of the best chefs in the region including Mark Estee, Charlee Abowd, and Justin Kaplan, learning to appreciate and utilize locally sourced seasonal ingredients.
Harrity continues to bring “California Comfort Food” to Cold Water Brewery drawing inspiration from a variety of cultures and cuisines to create a menu to satisfy all palates and the pickiest of eaters. When he is not running a kitchen, Harrity can be found on his mountain bike enjoying the beautiful scenery of the Lake Tahoe or making pastries with his favorite lady Rosie of Sweet Rosies Baked Treats.
