FACTION: A group within a larger group, especially one with slightly different ideas from the main group

If everyone else is doing it, why should we? We try to stay true to ourselves and make the beers we want to make and like to drink. We produce a wide range of beers in our 20-barrel brewhouse, including lagers, stouts, Belgian style beers, barrel aged beers, and the occasional sour. But our true specialty and passion lies in hoppy beers. We strive to make Pale Ales and IPAs that highlight the full expression of the hops while retaining low bitterness and excellent drinkability.
