2015 BREWERIES

Ole Shed Brewing Company was founded by Mike Thornburg and Mike Ramsey in 2011

Located in the heart of Tennessee, we embrace the sundry charms of the state. With fine traditions in many things including both music and spirits, we hope to capture the essence of the land and culture in what we do. Tennessee Brew Works is an advocate for the local movement and we aspire to support the local community and organizations, especially our farmers. Together we are providing people with higher quality goods and services.

Yazoo Brewing really started with a homebrewing kit bought from the back pages of Rolling Stone in 1993. In October 2003, we opened the doors and began selling kegs of Yazoo Pale Ale, Dos Perros, Spring Wheat, and Onward Stout to local bars and restaurants, quickly gaining an enthusiastic local following. We replaced the Spring Wheat with our Hefeweizen after winning a Gold Medal for the hefeweizen at the 2004 Great American Beer Festival, and started bottling our beers in 2005. Other local favorites like our Sly Rye Porter and our Hop Project rounded out our line-up of beers. In 2009, we managed to brew Tennessee's first ever legal high-gravity ale, Yazoo Sue, after managing to get a distillery license. Our little brewery grew and grew, until we couldn't fit any more equipment in the building.

Blackstone Brewpub is open for lunch & dinner 7 days a week. Enjoy one of our award winning craft beers. We opened our brand, new state of the art, brewing and bottling facility in the summer of 2011. Look for our beer everywhere in Middle Tn. We opened our brand, new state of the art, brewing and bottling facility in the summer of 2011. Look for our beer in stores, restaurants and bars throughout the middle Tennessee area.

Jackalope Brewing Company is a new craft brewery in Nashville, Tennessee. We distribute our beer, draft-only, to bars and restaurants, and will also have a tap room where people can come to check out the behind-the-scenes action and try our brews while relaxing with friends

TailGate Beer was founded by a 21-year-old homebrewer, Wesley Keegan. The story goes, Wesley was approached by his father, Tim, one day about what he was going to do with his life. As an ocean lifeguard and co-owner of a bar, Wesley thought he had it made. His dad informed him of a trademark he had won in 2004 and subsequently protected in contest from Anheuser Busch. The name was TailGate Beer. Tim thought TailGate Beer was something special. As an avid sports fan and tailgater, Tim implored Wesley to take his homebrews that people loved drinking and brew TailGate Beer!  Wesley took what he liked to brew, and brewed in Southern California. All initial beers were brewed and packaged in kegs and glass bottles. Wesley entered into the Great American Beer Festival in 2007 and although no formal awards were won, TailGate Beer was a hit!   TailGate Beer has now relocated its headquarters to the hillside of west Nashville.

 Classically refined, but not styled as a traditional "sweet beer" beer alternative, Crispin ciders are crisp and clean, not sweet and sticky and never sacrifice superior quality refreshment satisfaction for overbearing complexity. Always true to the apple, Crispin Hard Ciders naturally fermented in the USA use fresh pressed apple-juice, not from apple juice concentrate, from a premium blend of US West Coast apples, with no added malt, grape wine or spirit alcohol. Crispin's unique USA produced ciders are smoothed with pure apple juice or from natural sugar sources like organic honey or organic maple syrup, and contain no added colorants, sorbate or benzoate preservatives. Crispin ciders have 7 different varietals - Original, Light and Brut; classic European styled crisp clean ciders, Browns Lane; an imported classic English dry cider, and our line of Artisanal Reserves; Honey Crisp, The Saint and Lansdowne - unfiltered "cloudy" ciders, ground-breaking "craft beer" uniquely American ciders. Crispin ciders are also gluten free!

 

The Flat 12 Bierwerks brewery consists of a 20 barrel DME brewhouse and a floor of fermenters and brites, accompanied by two 120 barrel fermenters outside the building. On this equipment, the brewers will produce a line-up of five house beers, four seasonals and some ‘select’ beers for special promotion and/or monthly exclusives. Kegging equipment and a Maheen bottling line helps get the beer to its final destination. In addition, the brewers have a small pilot brewing system and growing barrel-aging program to satisfy their curiosity, cravings and creative urges. Attached to the brewhouse is a taproom for welcoming customers to sample and take home fresh-as-it-gets product.

Beer- lover John Hall enjoyed brews from all over Europe and wanted to convince Midwesterners that they could produce beers as good or better than those he’d tasted in his travels.  He decided that his hometown, Chicago, would be the ideal place to do just that. The key to building interest in craft beer, Hall decided, was to allow consumers to watch the brewing process – while providing them with the then-novel experience of enjoying a wide variety of distinctive beers that had been produced on-site. Goose Island’s brewers set to work crafting a diverse selection of unique beers – and on Friday, May 13, 1988 the Goose Island Brewpub was born.

By 1995, the brewpub had become so popular that John Hall decided to open a larger brewery and bottling plant to keep up with demand. Finding still more room for growth, in 1999 Hall opened a second Goose Island Brewpub just a stone’s throw away from historic Wrigley Field. Goose Island beers are now enjoyed in all 50 states and Europe.

 

 

When we founded High Cotton Brewing Company, we didn’t want to just create beer whose name paid homage to our Southern Heritage, but brew it in a way that did as well. We knew that bumper crops didn’t just happen. That they were equal parts inspiration, perspiration and a little bit of luck. It’s a process that’s worked well for generations, and one that we bring to everything we do.

Whether it be the meticulous selection of ingredients, the painstaking process of trial and error, or ruthlessly critiquing the fruits of our labor, the result is a collection of beers that we’re proud to brew, proud to drink and most of all, proud to share.

 

Southern Prohibition Brewing launched in April of 2013 with two simple goals: brew great beer and help make Mississippi a great place to live. Our 22,000 sq. ft. warehouse was a furniture showroom when originally constructed in 1941. After some renovations, the microbrewery in Downtown Hattiesburg houses a 20 barrel brewhouse. With three 60 barrel and four 40 barrel fermenters, Southern Prohibition currently has the capacity to produce 5,000 barrels a year.

At Black Abbey Brewing Company, we take an artisanal approach to beer, crafting unique and approachable ales from the highest quality ingredients. Yet it’s more than that. We strive to supply liquid refreshment that is greater than the sum of its fine parts. Our beers are created. Not made. Right here in Nashville. For everything from our company name to our beers, we draw inspiration from the profound actions of Martin Luther, a German law student who in 1505 had a lightning-strike moment, quite literally, and became a monk. Luther’s focus on fellowship and community, his willingness to shake things up when necessary, and his commitment to transforming something distant and unattainable into a comfortable, meaningful part of daily life sparked a massive social, religious and political reformation. Luther believed we should drink for joy! We at The Black Abbey Brewing Company second that wholeheartedly.

Czann’s Brewing Company is one of the newest breweries in Nashville but it’s owner and brewmaster Ken Rebman has been brewing delicious beer for over 10 years.  Like most home brewers he started brewing in his basement, but unlike most home brewers he purchased his most recent home based solely on the basement’s ability to give him the conditions he needed to make better beer.  Ken is serious about his beer.  Serious enough to run piping from his kegs in the basement to a wall-mounted tap in his living room upstairs.  I got to meet with Ken in his brewery located over on Lea Ave. near the new convention center.  I was amazed to learn the Ken is a one-man-show.  He literally does everything to brew the beer and run the business on his own.  The name Czann came from combining his mother’s last name Czora with his last name Rebman,  If you are still wondering how to say it just, “Say Czann’s!”…like the famous painter Cezanne

OBP began in the garage turned brewery of Orlando’s Tom Moench. Tom made all types of beers from traditional beer styles of various specialty beers using ingredients such as fresh coconut, shitake mushrooms, fresh Bing cherries, and ginseng. The most popular beer he produced was his Orange Blossom Pilsner and it proved to be a favorite of his ‘thirsty’ friends. Learn more:

Turtle Anarchy Brewing Company opened its doors for the first time July 5th, 2012. It took a lot of long hours and hard work to make the brewery what it is today. It is the mission of Turtle Anarchy to brew flavorful, dynamic, and unique beers for craft beer drinkers. We will never compromise the integrity of our beers with cheap additives or artificial ingredients. All of our beers are hand made by our knowledgeable and passionate brewers to ensure that every pint served is of the highest degree of quality and freshness. We hope that you enjoy drinking our beers as much as we enjoy brewing them.

 

Master Brewer Mark Thompson returned to his native Virginia from Portland, Oregon to open his own brewery after several years of apprenticing with other master brewers. In September 1999 he opened his brewery, “Star Hill,” in a historic storefront on Main Street that was once home to the state of Virginia’s first craft brewing operation.  Named after the local neighborhood, the brewery shared its historic building with the legendary Starr Hill Music Hall.  Nineteen prestigious awards later, Mark’s brews continue to be a hit at beer and music festivals nationwide. Now, Star Hill’s house and seasonal brews are now enjoyed in restaurants and music clubs throughout the Mid Atlantic and Southeast.  Mark is proud of the awards his microbrews have earned, and the experts agree that he is among the best craft brewers in the country. But at the end of the day, what still matters most to Mark and his team of brewers at Starr Hill is giving people the gift of great beer

 

Redhook was born out of the energy & spirit of the early 80's in the heart of Seattle. While the term didn't exist at the time, Redhook became one of America's first "craft" breweries. From a modest start in a former transmission shop in the Seattle neighborhood of Ballard, to the current breweries in Woodinville, WA and Portsmouth, NH, Redhook has become one of America's most recognized craft breweries. While Redhook has "grown up" over the past 30 years, one thing has never changed… it's still brewing great beers like ESB, Long Hammer IPA, Copperhook, and Seasonal brews, and most importantly, making sure that they're having fun doing it. Redhook's beers are available in both draught and bottles and are distributed nationally through a network of wholesale distributors.

Red Hare Brewing Company is an independent microbrewery located in the heart of Marietta, GA. In August 2011 Red Hare started selling its craft beer throughout the state of Georgia, and is now also available in Tennessee and South Carolina. Red Hare is the first craft brewery in Georgia to can their craft beer. Stop by for one of our tours & tastings to see where the magic happens!

 

As a passionate home brewer for nearly a decade, Ben Bredesen honed his expertise in the art and science of beer making through countless hours slaving over vats of steaming grains. Oh…and by sharing and tasting the results of many experimental brews. As Ben’s knowledge of the science of brewing increased, so did his passion for the art and history of beermaking. After years of whetting his thirst with home brewing, Ben finally took the advice of his friends and family and decided to follow his dream of becoming a professional brewer.

 

Want to know what's crazy? If we hadn't met over beers in a tasting room in San Francisco, we would still be working in highrises and struggling against the current of chaotic city life. Instead, we crafted a crazy brewery scheme and followed our hearts to Colorado where our lives are filled with passionate pursuits: brewing the finest craft beer, skiing Vail’s infinite Back Bowls, fishing clear mountain streams, hiking with our dogs…basically loving life in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Crazy Mountain Brewery is the Vail Valley’s first production brewery, but really it’s a declaration of freedom. We say crazy is, as crazy does, so drink up and live the life you want!

 

 

Tallgrass Brewing Company was founded in 2007 with goal of bringing quality craft beers to the Midwest. Located near the Flint Hills in Manhattan, Kansas, Tallgrass now offers a full line of award-winning craft beers. In 2010 Tallgrass switched from bottles to 16 oz. cans. In 2015, Tallgrass moved into its new 60,000-square-foot brewing facility, tripling the capacity of its original facility and establishing it as a major regional brewery.

 

Straight To Ale is a 10,000 square foot craft brewery with a taproom that serves samples and pints of Straight To Ale beer brewed on site. With our many varieties of flavors, there's something for everyone.  Come try your favorite today!

Welcome to Williamson County's first and only microbrewery. Our philosophy is to offer the very finest ales and lagers possible by using traditional brewing techniques and only the freshest ingredients available. We offer five of our own freshly brewed craft beers at any one time, each has its own unique taste and is brewed using our international award winning Brewmasters own recipe. Craft brew is also available in 64oz growlers 'to go'.

Back Forty Beer Company’s name is inspired by an old agricultural term referring to the 40 acres of land situated furthest from the barn. The back 40 acres are historically the most challenging land to maintain and are often overlooked due to their remote location.

Likewise, Alabama is widely seen as the wasteland for craft beer in America. With mass produced light beer being the drink of choice for many Southerners, the craft beer market here has been largely ignored.

However, if you dig a little deeper into the story of the back 40 you will see that because the soil is rarely used, it’s very fertile and is actually capable of producing a tremendous yield.  And just like the farm, the Deep South’s craft beer culture is fertile and primed for harvest.

 

I started home brewing in my garage in 1993. I made the decision to start a brewery in late 2009. I worked for three years on the business plan and trying to raise money for the project. We opened the brewery on my birthday November 30, 2012.

We at Founders Brewing Co. have been lucky to evolve into one of the highest recognized breweries in the United States. We have been ranked in the top breweries in the world by Ratebeer.com for the last five years, and we have several beers listed in the top one hundred beers of the world on Beeradvocate.com. We’ve won six World Beer Cup medals, four European Beer Star medals and three Great American Beer Festival medals—thirteen medals total across eight different beers.

We are proud to be doing what we’re doing. We give credit to our staff for continuously working to reinvent what beer can be and thanks to our many customers for whom we work to provide world-class beers.

 

All we set out to do was make good beer to share with our friends. We never imagined that our passion for brewing would become a business. But, thousands of hours, hundreds of hiccups, two abandoned day jobs, and one business license later, Good People Brewing Company was born, with the sale of our first keg on July 4, 2008, in our hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. And, so far, so good. Our offerings now include five year-round brews, four seasonals, and an occasional one-off. Good People is now enjoyed by folks in Alabama and Tennessee, most of whom we don’t actually know yet. And, according to BeerAdvocate, a leading voice in the beer community, the four highest-rated beers in the South are ours. We’re honored that people seem to think we know what we’re doing. See what you think. Give us a try.

Ever since the summer of 1995, we have been brewing, cooking, selling and talking everything beer. It's our pasttime, our passion, our life. Since the beginning, we have always wanted to bring original beer, great food and local music to the Rehoboth Beach area. After a couple of years, no matter what we did, we could not keep up with the demands of our beer, our food and our entertainment. We built a bigger and better brewhouse (in Rehoboth Beach, DE - on the Avenue) and that's where Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats is housed! Yum!

With brewing, distributing, cooking, entertaining happening all in one building on the Avenue in Rehoboth, we eventually outgrew the brew house and moved the entire production brewery to Milton, Delaware. To keep things interesting and off-centered, we built a distillery in the upstairs of the Rehoboth Brewhouse so we could make vodka, rum and gin.

 

WISEACRE is a brewery committed to top quality, uniquely flavorful beer that appeals to passionate & progressive people through education & good times.  The brewery name comes from a term of endearment/scolding their grandmother used on the young troublemakers.  Brothers Davin & Kellan Bartosch dreamed up WISEACRE many moons ago & have been on an extensive quest procuring top-notch experience from around the globe to deliver the crunkest brewery possible in their groovy hometown of Memphis, TN.

The two operated on Frazier Avenue in Chattanooga’s North Shore area formally known as hill city until the beginning of 2014 when they began the move to the current location in the south side of the town. We have grown in many ways in the short three and a half years. The old location was around 1,200 square feet with a electric 3 ½ barrel brew set with 4 seven barrel tanks and two 20 barrel tanks. We now are housed in a 7,500 square foot facility with a 15 barrel brew house 5 sixty barrel tanks two 20 barrel tanks and 2 bright or laagering tanks. The new facility has a much larger retail presence with tasting room and food menu. The old location had a small retail component consisting of two nights a week when the public could come in and fill growler and grab pint. The occupancy of the new tasting room is 147 with two bars and a menu to snack on. The beer will always be the most important part of the business but now we do offer food for those who are hungry. We have tried to stay true to the German styles/recipes that the Rief family used. Beer recipes were and still are kept secret except from the head brewer’s. We have not found the exact recipe that the original Chatt Brew used, but have done research and we feel it’s pretty close. We researched the recipes for different styles that the Germans were using during the time frame (1890-1915). Our flagship beer is the Imperial Pilsner which is a German Helles style Pilsner, the same beer that put Chattanooga Brewing on the map more than a hundred years ago.

In 1992, the Blackhorse Pub and Brewery opened in Historic Downtown Clarksville.  Our goal then, as now. was to provide a neighborhood gathering place for friends and families.

 

We are very proud to open a second location in Knoxville in Western Plaza, where Bearden meets Sequoyah Hills and near The University of Tennessee.  We strive to provide the food, service, and atmosphere that would make people want to come back.  We offer gourmet pizza, steaks & pastas, salad & sandwiches, as well as Brunch on Saturday and Sunday.

 

Our handcrafted ales are brewed to perfection on site.  We are committed to providing the freshest, finest beer possible.  Try one on your next visit or sample one of each in our beer flight.

 

Finch's Beer Co. makes tasty canned beers out of our brewery in Chicago, IL, & ships them to a bunch of states. Pretty simple! Cheers to Chicago. Craft. Beer.

We’re in this to have fun and put some extra joy on the planet,” Dale Katechis says. “We love the way people’s heads spin around after they try one of our four-dimensional canned beers. ‘That came out of a can?’

We work hard to source the finest ingredients and use them to handcraft only the highest quality cider.

We single handedly reinvented the U.S. hard cider category in 1991 through our flagship Woodchuck Amber. In the 20 plus years that followed, we have pushed the boundaries of the cider category while our passion to innovate has mirrored our insistence on handcrafted quality.

 

We are firmly rooted in Vermont and our cider is made in a cidery, not alongside mass market beer. We follow our own independent spirit when crafting our ciders. At a time when most were focused on the craft beer segment we passionately stayed our course to innovate and educate consumers on a traditional American beverage. In fact, cider is now the fastest growing segment in the US. Staying true to our roots, Woodchuck is Real Cider from a Real Place™.

 

Inspired by the nearby Sierra Nevada Mountains, our beers are designed to be as bold, wild and unwavering as those storied granite peaks. With respect to tradition and an unbridled passion for innovation, Sierra Nevada beers are inspired by the philosophy that anything is possible. We are committed to pushing the boundaries of craft beer and we look forward to the day that flavorful beers are the standard throughout the world.

We brew over 151,000 barrels of beer and 9,100 barrels of root beer in our state-of-the-art brewing facility. Our lagers and ales are brewed in small batches, hand-crafted by a team of dedicated workers with only the highest ideals of quality. This pride, along with our brewing process, is what creates our great brews.

 

We are privately owned and operated by local shareholders, many who have been with us since day one.

 

Abita uses only the finest ingredients – British and North American malted barley, German and American yeast strains, Pacific Northwest hops and the pure artesian water of Abita Springs.

 

In Abita Springs, we are blessed with the purest of water. Drawn from our deep wells, our pristine water is not altered in any way.

 

Abita Beer has no preservatives, additives or stabilizers and is cold filtered. The result is beer that is the finest and freshest tasting as proven by our loyal customers and great chefs of the south who use Abita Beer in their recipes.

 

For almost twenty five years, we have been pioneering the craft beer revolution! Our brewers have been awarded over two hundred national awards for their unique brewing styles. Our menus have received numerous accolades. The tradition continues today at each Rock Bottom with local brewers and local chefs coming together to create bold local flavors both in our beers we brew and the food we serve.

 

When you hit Rock Bottom, you'll enjoy our handcrafted beers, our made from scratch food, and something else that just doesn't happen that often...a connection to the locals. This connection is made possible because of our staff, and as they would like to say, life begins when "You've Hit Rock Bottom!"

 

At Blue Moon Brewing Company®, we believe brewing is an art. And it’s been that way since our head brewmaster and founder, Keith Villa, first created Blue Moon® Belgian White Belgian-Style Wheat Ale back in 1995 in downtown Denver, Colorado.

Peroni Nastro Azzurro is a premium Italian beer. Crisp and refreshing with an unmistakable character and a touch of Italian style: designed with a Mediterranean palate in mind, Peroni Nastro Azzurro offers a delicate balance of bitterness and citrus & spicy aromatic notes, combined with a surprisingly fast & clean finish.

The first batch of beer was brewed on 5th October 1842. Five weeks later, on 11th November, the beer was first drunk in the town. A golden beer – the world’s first golden beer – it was fresh, clear and refreshing with a hint of caramel sweetness and a fragrant, balanced hop bitterness. It was an immediate success and a proud moment for the city of Plzen. Since that day the recipe has remained the same.

From the very start, our mission has been to brew distinctive, flavorful beers.  Through continued innovation and exploration we’ve introduced beer drinkers to new flavors — whether capturing the essence of a season or pushing the boundaries of brewing.  Why?  One simple reason — for the love of beer.

Sit back and relax. Traveler Beer has arrived to take you on a trip from here to refreshing. It’s a satisfying trip; a quick one that starts the moment that first sip hits your taste buds. A sophisticated blend of carefully crafted American wheat ale with fresh and refreshing ingredients. What ingredients? Well, that depends on what kind of Traveler you are.

 

We’ve unleashed a family of beers so surprising and delightful that no matter how you travel, it’s always the same destination–true refreshment of body and soul. Wherever you are, refreshment is just a Traveler away.

 

SweetWater’s roots began back in Boulder, Colorado in the early 90′s while Freddy Bensch and Kevin McNerney were roommates at the University of Colorado, Boulder.

During their time out west, they realized they had more of a hankering for beer than books. Their first step into the profession was washing kegs on the loading docks of a local brewery for free beer. Not a bad job when you’re in college! With all this free beer, their grades went up, their cars got fixed, friends were plentiful and the sun shined a little brighter. Once they were finished with school, it was time to either find a real job, or get serious in the brewing business. Easy choice, right? Freddy and Kevin headed off to the American Brewers Guild in California aka Brewing School to sharpen up their knowledge of “Fermentation Science”! After that they were off and running brewing beer for other breweries around the west coast, learning their craft while keeping the dream of their own place alive.

 

Pabst Blue Ribbon is brewed in the finest traditions of an American Premium Lager dating back to 1844. Brewed with a combination of 2 & 6-row malted barley, select cereal grains and American and European hops, Pabst Blue Ribbon is fermented with a proprietary lager yeast. Our unique fermentation and maturation process results in a smooth, full bodied beer with a clean, crisp finish with a fine noble hop aroma.

From points distant and beyond we all converged on Petaluma in 1993 and '94 with an unenunciated desire to be more than we were before. The core of Lagunitas came from Chicago, St Louis, Memphis, Walker Creek, and the highlands of Quincy.

 

The Chicago contingent initiated the brewing and the gravitational effect of its suchness did the rest. We all loved the beer but the mission was larger than the ordinary joy of a hoppy-sweet quaff. It was driven unseen by an urge to communicate with people, to find our diasporidic tribe, and to connect with other souls adrift on a culture that had lost its center and spun its inhabitants to the four winds to wander lost and bereft with a longing to re-enter the light. Beer, we have learned, has always been a good lubricant for social intercourse!

 

The Lagunitas Brewing Co. was not so much an act of ordinary 'foundling' as it was willed into being by the unspoken desire of supportive beer-lovers in Northern California after which they continued to nurture their creation and urged us forward to fulfill the unifying needs of that same beer-loving diaspora from coast to coast and beyond. It is good to have friends!

 

A pilsner-style lager brewed with premium barley malt, Modelo Especial is characterized by its deep golden hue, orange blossom aroma and slight hint of sweetness. Originally brewed as a model of what a good beer should be, Modelo Especial is known to many for its full-flavored taste, light hop character and crisp finish.

Since 1909, every drop of Shiner Beer has been brewed at the Spoetzl Brewery in Shiner, Texas. Today, our little brewery sends more than 6 million cases of delicious Shiner beer to states across the country. We think our founder, Kosmos Spoetzl, would be pretty proud.

From first sip to last drop, you can taste the expert craft that goes into all of our beer.

The most refreshing margarita in the world, made with agave nectar, pure cane sugar, and organic limes. We’re not just brewers, we’re also our own customers. High fructose corn syrup and 10 syllable flavor names aren’t for us. We create drinks that we would love to drink, and we hope you do too.

Dynamically crafting innovative, inspired, high-quality beer utilizing state of the art technology blended with passion, care and commitment. We specialize in brewing handcrafted, flavorful ales and lagers, using only the finest and freshest ingredients available.

The Leinenkugel family brewery was founded in Chippewa Falls, WI in May 1867 by Jacob Leinenkugel. A family man driven by an iron work ethic, Jacob knew that his family heritage would play an integral part of his brewery's success. Today,  the fifth generation of Leinenkugel's continue to brew the same family inspired recipes that Jacoub poured his heart and sould into. Over the years, the family has grown and so has the brewery, but its history and heritage remain at the forefront.

The first brew produced by Alltech Lexington Brewing and Distilling Co, Kentucky Ale® is described as a marriage between two classic beer styles, Irish Red Ale and English Pale Ale. With a light amber color, Kentucky Ale owes its body and character to select imported malts and a pinch of wheat malt for a rich, smooth taste. This brew is placed into bourbon barrels to make the brewery’s flagship Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale®.

Tin Man Brewing Co. was assembled in 2012, an alloy of production brewery and restaurant. Committed to sustaining a habitable environment for all living and mechanical being, we utilize innovative processes to minimize waste and maximize taste. Forging new ground, we were one of the first small craft breweries in the United States to use a mash filter.

Carson’s Brewery, founded in 2012 in Evansville is Southern Indiana’s premier microbrewery. We started with barrel batch sizes used to test, improve and perfect many different types of beer. A few had what it took to make the cut and became the staples of our core offerings. These and our seasonals are available to you both in package and in your favorite bar or restaurant. Carson’s Brewery will be offering a variety of American ales, wheats, brown ales, IPAs and multiple seasonals. Stop on by and try them or one of our other crazy one off brews that will be in limited release only at our tasting room. While you are there fill up a growler or take a tour. After all we are always proud to show off what we’ve worked so hard to create for you! Cheers.

At Stella Artois, we are extremely proud of our Belgian roots. Our story can be seen on every bottle of Stella Artois. If you look closely, hints of our origins are proudly displayed.

 

By 1366 roots of our brewing tradition had been established in the city of Leuven, Belgium– which is also where the original Den Hoorn brewery was founded. Den Hoorn laid the foundation for the quality taste and standard Stella Artois is known for. The symbol of the Den Hoorn Brewery is proudly displayed in Stella Artois' cartouche to this day.At Stella Artois, we are extremely proud of our Belgian roots. Our story can be seen on every bottle of Stella Artois. If you look closely, hints of our origins are proudly displayed.

 

For more than two decades, our mission at Smuttynose has remained simple: to brew the best beer we can in a way we can be proud of. That includes honoring New England’s rich history of beermaking, respecting our environment and playing an active role in our community.

We value creativity and quality, authenticity and sustainability, but at the end of the day, it really boils down to making great beers to be enjoyed with family and friends. We hope you love drinking our beers as much as we love brewing them. Cheers!
