Beards Brewery

Beards Brewery was started by two friends who had a common passion: Beer. It began as a home brewing partnership, that, fueled by demand, led Ben Slocum and Peter Manthei to take the plunge into commercial brewing.

After a devoted summer of recipe crafting, a lot of hard work planning and finding and securing a space, Ben and Peter began remodeling what is today Beards Brewery.

It's still early in the story, but armed with a great team, albeit a small one, Beards is off to a fantastic start. A big thank you to all the local support.

At Beards, we have a small 1bbl brew house, but we work it hard, focusing on quality, creativity and community. Stop in to watch us brew, and enjoy a pint or two.
