To create an elevated experience of dining in our community, while educating our guests on our love for good whiskey.
Owner Kevin Cox is a native of Colville, Washington, born and raised. He started a construction business in California after the log and lumber market crash in 2009. Kevin then built and founded Purgatory Craft Beer and Whiskey Inc in 2017. Kevin has always maintained his home on Lake Roosevelt north of Kettle Falls, Wa. where he calls home.
Purgatory Craft Beer and Whiskey Bar was envisioned due to the fact that there was a lack of a place in Tracy, CA where people could enjoy great whiskey, beer, and food, so I built it.
The name came from an area which reflected the joy that great whiskey, beer, and food brought. This area is located in Colorado, where I spent much time each year with friends and family enjoying the things that brought me joy; such as hunting big game, skiing, whiskey, good friends, and family.
The Purgatory Craft Beer and Whiskey Inc brand will continue to be the best experience possible for our guests. The Purgatory is the place where guests enjoy good whiskey, beer, and food with friends and family. Our brand will excel with future additional locations currently being scouted, and accessed for potential growth.
