our environment

The brewery and farm are a reflection of our passions, beliefs, experiences, and combined vision.

About Us

Being nestled in the Carolinian forest, we are surrounded by a lush, ecological habitat that is home to unique flora and fauna such as: the tulip tree, pawpaw, and the rare southern flying squirrel. This makes the local area very special and one that we feel needs to be respected, protected, and celebrated.


Our modus operandi is to tread as lightly on the Earth as we can. If possible, we’d actually like to leave it in better shape then we found it. Needless to say, the business approach we’ve taken is a little different. To create an environmental, social, and economic impact in the community that supports us, we’ve placed the following values at the core of our business model:


  1. Utilize as much repurposed material as possible
  2. Grow raw ingredients organically and/or purchase organic
  3. Pay personnel a living wage so they can prosper
  4. Strive to be as close to zero waste as possible
  5. Serve artisanal beer and food that is as sustainable as it is delicious
