Life begins in gardens.

Tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant and basil. That's where it started for us. Out on the deck, grilling with friends. Discovering the joy of handcrafted food we had grown ourselves.

And then there were hops. 

Just two small rhizomes, planted on a whim. Yet they roared to life and swallowed our patio in a blaze of green. Rampant. Seductive. It would be a shame to let them go to waste. We had been roasting our own coffee for years. Why not try brewing beer?

It seemed like such an innocent decision at the time...

From man’s sweat and God’s love, beer came into the world.
— St. Arnold, AD 640

Our ancestors saw beer as a gift from God, to be received with gratitude. Not just because it cheers our hearts and brings people together. It can also be a force for great good. 

We saw this firsthand. In 2010, we teamed up with Montana's largest brewery to brew a special beer that would help people in need: All Souls Ale was born - an 11% wonder, fit for a king! 

And that got us thinking...

How about a brewery of our own?

That's what our friends kept asking. Once the idea sprouted there was no turning back. Now we've built our own - a 10 barrel system with a cozy little taproom for you and your friends - right here in the heart of East Austin. 

Where you ask? How about East 6th & Chicon, right across from Whisler's? (Yeah, we thought you'd like it.)

We're not trying to change the world, but we are trying to change here - to make our little neighborhood even better than it already is. Coffee, beer and tacos can help.

A bar is just a church where they serve beer.
— Jim White

Why would a pastor start a brewery? Maybe beer lends insight into people. Maybe it helps keep us grounded. Maybe it's just history repeating itself.

You see, for over a thousand years, some of the best brewers in the world were people of faith. Those early brew masters felt faith and beer could work together to craft a better community. We tend to agree.

No one would do anything if they knew what they were in for.

That's the question, isn't it?

Life is an adventure. Drink it up. Share it with friends. That's our passion. And that's our invitation - to join us in the journey!

Here's how to get involved...
