Small Batch Pilot Beers of 2015

One thing we love to do at the brewery is experiment. Our five barrel pilot system is designed to let us play around with recipes and brew something unique. From co-owners to collaborations, we create and brew over 90 pilot beers on this system each year. These beers are showcased in our tap room until the kegs run dry. You never know what will be on tap when you walk through our doors… It’s half the fun!
