on Dec 15,2015 - 5 Comments -

With the last of our 2015 special releases now in the wild and months of experimentation, fine-tuning and grueling tasting panels under our belts, the time has come at last to pull back the curtain on 2016’s impending scheduled bombtasticness. If you were dazzled by the majesty of last year’s offerings you may want to shield your face, because we are about to unleash some Ark-of-the-Convenant-level face-melting up in this piece.

A LOOK BACK AT 2015

on Dec 14,2015 - 5 Comments -

With the end of 2015 approaching, it feels more like we built a time machine than a brewery. The last two and a half years have been nothing short of mind-blowing, and it’s probably a good idea at this point to take a few moments to look back at some of the staggering feats of brewing, engineering, event planning, and general badassery that our team was able to accomplish over the last twelve months.

We're Expanding--Again--& It's Going To Be Rad

on Aug 04,2015 - 27 Comments -

We’ve been in a near-constant state of growth since we opened our doors. Our capacity has grown fourfold through the regular arrival of new fermenters, packaging equipment, and other improvements. Most recently, the installation of dry and spent grain silos capped off our second major phase of growth.

And now we’re about to start another major phase of growth, to the extent that it even makes sense to talk about phases. With the help of the awesome lenders at Opus Bank, we'll be embarking on a major and concurrent set of projects that will once again change how this place looks, dramatically. If all goes to plan (ha!), here’s what we’re going to do:
