Our beers can credit their flavors to local ingredients grown as close to “home” as possible. We have developed close relationships with the growers and maltsters that share our backyard and collaborate with them all year round. Once the hops, grains, and barley make their way into our brewhouse, they spend their time in a combination of equipment, including our Hot Liquor Tank, Lauter Tun, and Whirpool. Our Combination Mash/Boil Kettle is shared with our distillery operation. We also have five 10 bbl. Fermenters which is what allows us to be flexible in our batch sizes so we are able to produce one-off creative projects as well as barrel-aged beer projects.
