IT’S ONLY NATURAL THAT WE’D END UP
BUILDING A LOCAL BREWERY THIS WAY.

After several months looking for a suitable location, a serene creekside setting drew our attention as a prime spot for a local brewery. Our thoughts were, “Imagine sitting here underneath the shade of the game lands listening to the creek babble past, drinking beer designed for a local like me.”

 

We built our local brewery with you in mind.

FRESH BEER & FRESH AIR.

Add a babbling creek and it’s almost surreal.

Our thoughts were that a local brewery where you spend a lot of your time has to be very cool. We chose this location because it’s along the historic Big Sewickley Creek. We designed the building to be opened to the outside during the warmer months.

We developed the property and designed our building specifically to be a brewery and taproom. Our back yard is defined by the historic Big Sewickley Creek yielding an outdoor beer garden that is very tranquil and perfect for kicking back with old friends or new. Sit by a fire pit, blend in with the nature of the valley, relax, and let loose. We believe that the fresh outdoors can uplift the spirit.

Our brewery might be a little “off the beaten path,” but it’s very accessible with a large parking lot.

WE LOVE DOGS!

(WHO DOESN’T?)

We are a dog-friendly establishment for well-behaved leash dogs, and expect people to stop by for a great beer with their family and canine companions. In fact, we have lead hooks at the bar and each table.

OUR BREWING PLANT WAS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO BREW LAGER BEER BY TRADITIONAL METHODOLOGY.

Why would we want to do this? Small-scale brewing lends itself to simple brewing techniques. The single-infusion mash is ideal for simplicity. With the proper ingredients, it is a fool-proof way to brew. We have never taken the simple path – Where’s the fun in that? Instead, we choose to use time- and effort-intensive multi-step mashing. While not technically needed for the mash to work correctly, it adds something a little special and noticeable. Decoction is not needed, but we do it, anyway. We have tanks and tanks. Lager beer needs to be kept cold from the start of fermentation to the final sip.

 

CURRENTLY SERVING

(Beer list subject to change.)

SMOKEY JOE

Our signature brew, 20 years in the making. It’s an amber lager close to Vienna style, malt-forward, and lightly smoked. A personal favorite.

i-BOCK

Malt is the new hops. I just made that up, but it’s the way I feel about it. Without going overboard on this, you can think of two main flavors in beer coming from malt and hops. Hops have had all the attention for a long time. Now, it’s malts turn in the spotlight. 6.5% abv

BRAD’S ALT

Our Alt beer is back. Brad is very happy about it and so are we. Richly malted with balanced hop bitterness to make for a smooth drinking brew.

BO-PILS H

Another Bohemian-style Pilsner and special because I used authentic Bohemian yeast. It is not for certain, but purportedly, the H strain is the original yeast used for Josef Groll’s original pilsner. I’m happy to offer this brew up to our patrons, prosit!

BALTIC PORTER

This one represents a lesser-known style of beer called Baltic Porter. Although similar to it’s ale namesake by being toasty, the cold fermentation allows the dark malt subtleties to show up. Think raisin and dark stone fruit, some smoke too, backed up by 7+% abv.

KÖLSCH

My original idea was to have Kölsch on tap for summer and Altbier in the winter. Well, that’s why plans are always tentative. At least for another batch, we have the pale back online. Lightly malted, spritzy brew, 5% abv. It may not be summer outside, but we can pretend inside.

DARK MATTER

This style always surprises me. It’s dark but light, substantive but not heavy, lots of dark malty flavor but not roasted, neither sweet nor bitter. A beer full of contrasts, it’s a dark lager, otherwise known as Schwarzbier. 5% abv.

ALL OCCASIONATOR

We’ve hit a milestone … our one year anniversary! A lot to reflect on for sure. There is no better way to reflect than over a legit double bock. Malty, balanced bitterness. It’s also our X-mas beer and New Year’s beer. It was named in honor of any and all occasions. 8.5% abv

BSCB PALE

This is a beer style you’d have found in many places across our great country prior to the Volstead Act of 1919. Expect full flavor with medium body and mellow sweetness due to 30% corn in the grist.

LA BOHEME

Fall = fest beer; at least that’s the way I’ve always seen it. Take a nice Bohemian Pilsner and give it some toast. Nicely grainy with just enough hop character to balance it out. Lingering malty aftertaste. 5.5% abv.

PAM’S DUNKEL

I brewed this beer in honor of our super-friends and jam specialists, Bianca and Nate. The enthusiasm and energy they bring lifts us all. Jam on my great friends! This one is in a category by itself. Colorful and toasty.

AUGSBURG GOL

Glittering gold is not the only golden stuff from Augsburg. This brew is nicely malted, golden-colored, balancing bitterness and noble hop aroma. This gold is richness without heaviness. It’s a Helles style. 5% abv

Unclosed tabs will be charged a 20% gratuity. No outside alcoholic beverages are permitted.

LOCAL BEER FOR LOCAL PEOPLE.

All along, our intention was never to sell beer all over the country. Rather, we simply want to open a local brewery making great beer for the local population to enjoy. We had the idea. We had the name. And, most important, we had the support of our family.
