Black Shirt Brewing Co. was founded in 1999 and opened to the public in 2012. As they say “good things take time.” Since our opening, we’ve collected many awards and recognitions for the quality of our beer, ambiance, and customer service as can be seen here. We became fascinated with the art and science of fermentation and the social aspect of sharing what we made with our community. We 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 was once said that you can do anything you put your mind to and we set out to prove it to ourselves.
