We are Bill Beekman, Adam Nachbaur, and Dean Beekman. We've spent our adult lives in the oil patch as an instrumentation technician, a mechanic, and a rig hand (respectively) and feel lucky to have had good careers there. While we'll always remain proud of that work, and loyal to the people who continue to do it, we are excited to transition to an alternative energy source: beer.
We love beer. It's introduced us to our best friends, given us our favourite stories, and taken the edge off our roughest days. Over cans, pints, and pitchers, we've laughed, planned, cheered, cursed, commiserated, reminisced, debated, and professed our love. Eventually we had to wonder, "Why aren't we making this ourselves?" A couple lessons and a kit or two later we were hooked on all-grain home brewing. What started as a hobby quickly escalated into microbrewery aspirations, and here we are - renovating a warehouse, refining recipes, and getting ready to meet you.
We are thrilled to be doing this in Sylvan Lake. Born and raised nearby, we've been lucky to be a part of this town's rich history of work and play. We can't wait to sink our Alberta roots a little deeper as we source our ingredients from nearby producers, give back to the local economy, and invest in the growth of this impressive community.
