Our brewing process begins on a 15-barrel brewhouse that consists of a mash/lauter tun, a steam-heated boil kettle, and a separate whirlpool tank. The brewhouse is where we combine malted barley with hot water and hops to create a sweet liquid known as wort.
The wort is then moved into a fermentation tank, where a massive population of yeast cells turn the wort into beer. After fermentation, the beer is matured at near-freezing temperatures for clarification.
Once clarified, we transfer each batch of beer to one of two places: a bright beer tank for kegging and bottling, or a serving tank that connects directly to a tap line.
Our brewery is highly visible from our taproom, and you can often watch our brewers in action – especially if your schedule allows you to enjoy a beer on a weekday afternoon.
