History of How we Got Here

Our Founder and Head Brewer, JR Heaps, worked in historic restoration prior to running a brewery. When the markets imploded in 2008 the restoration business fell to the same fate. This event drove JR to take his passion of brewing and his mild obsession with the technical side of beer industry and turn it into the real thing. He spent nearly 3 years planning, brewing, apprenticing and prepping to open the brewery. Construction started in January of 2010. During that time he had to convince the town of Fawn Grove that a brewery was worth having. This required obtaining variances and zoning exceptions in order to legally open a brewery, which wasn't even listed in the town's ordinance. 18 months later, the brewery opened in July of 2011. We have grown quite a bit since then. From our first 5 barrel system, cobbled together from old British pub tanks, to our new 15 barrel steam brew house and cellar field of 15 and 30 Barrel tanks. We currently distribute to South Central Pennsylvania and a few counties in Maryland. We also a have a great taproom with several beers on tap, guest wine and beer to go.
