Black Shirt Brewing Co. was founded in 1999 and opened to the public in 2012. As the old adage goes, “good things take time.” Since our opening, we’ve collected many awards and accolades for the quality of our beer, our ambiance, and our customer service (you can check those out here). Many years ago, we became fascinated with the art and science of fermentation and the social aspect of sharing what we made with our community. None of us had never operated a commercial brewery before but we jumped into our journey with both feet—we read every book we could get our hands on, studied every article, and got to work. It’s been said that you can do anything you put your mind to, and we set out to prove that to ourselves.
