- We take great pride in the beers we brew, and are committed to providing you with ...
Premium quality, craft brewed beers: We use only the choicest hops and malted barley available. Our owner/brewmaster, Phil Gagne', has over 30 years of brewing experience, and was mentored by German brewmaster Sig Plagens. Sig passed on over 40 years of his brewing knowledge to Phil; the awards we have garnered over the years speak to quality, and the value of knowledge and experience.
Value: When you purchase a case of one of the mega-brewer's beer, a large portion of the price is due to their advertising budget. So you are, in essence, paying them to advertise to you, to convince you to continue to drink their beer. Our beers cost as much, or more, to make as theirs, but costs you considerably less. We rely on "word of mouth" advertising.
