Now that’s a Frequently Asked Question.
It’s a tough one to answer succinctly. Brewers often say they brew the beer they want to drink. For us, that’s, well, all of them (and that works out great, because we want to brew beer for all the people, too). Sometimes life calls for a hoppy, pink, sour ale. Sometimes it calls for pale lager. Often, it calls for something in between. They’re all fascinating and beautiful and wonderful – and, to hell with it, we’ll brew them all.
The truth is, we’ve spent the better part of a decade experimenting with recipes and “product strategies” or whatever and we’ve found three truths to be self-evident:
- Variety is the spice of life: We love everything hoppy, hazy, funky, fruity, tart, dark, creamy, crisp, and clean. Expect us to throw a lot of different styles your way.
- Every style is sacred, no style is sacred: If you’re going to brew a classic style, you gotta do it well. No shortcuts and nothing second-rate. But we’re also not afraid to put a unique spin on a style if we think it works.
- Quality matters most: That’s the bottom line. Everything else is fair game.
We’ll roll out a more specific tap list as we get closer to opening — but for now, you can count on us having various pale lagers and pale ales (German! American! Belgian!) as staples in the taproom. And we’ll almost certainly offer an IPA (or, like, dozens of them). We’ll also get weird — incorporating coconut, spices, coffee, cacao, or any number of local fruits into our rotational brews. It’s gonna be exciting, and it’s gonna be done right.
