A general's prized mare and a shipwreck. A naval shipyard founded in 1854. Forty thousand welders, torpedo makers, radiomen and Rosie the Riveters securing our freedom through a Civil, a Cold, and two World Wars. Two winemakers now toiling to handcraft beer worthy of this historic island.
Behind Every Great Beer
Is a great story
Learn about the storied naval base, how our founders went from wine to beer, and the story of how our little brewery grew into the communal hub our loyal patrons have come to love.
Announcing Our "Staff Brews" Series
We're stoked to announce our "Staff Brews" series! Small batch brews featuring ideas and recipes from our staff, and available only in our taprooms. Every few weeks, we'll be tapping one of our staff members for their ideas on a new brew, and then working with them to make it happen on our 1BBL pilot system. We're excited to get team members from across departments involved in the brewing process, and just as excited to have you all taste their creations!
STAFF BREWS #1: "TIPPY BOY" HAZY IPA
Friday, Aug. 18 – Our first Staff Brew drops at the taprooms this Friday. Tippy Boy Hazy IPA is a fruity, juice bomb dreamed up by one of our brewers, Tom. As far as the name, "Tippy Boy"? It's a long story. Check out the video below for a little behind the scenes look at the brew.
