Heading 1

Brass Ring Brewing joins a spirit of fierce independence with a love for community and making true craft beer.  Our beer is made from four natural ingredients: water, malted barley, hops and yeast – all natural - no chemicals, artifical flavorings or syrups, defoamers, clarifying agents, or preservatives. At Brass Ring we strives for style-specific perfection offering Traditional Pub Ales, Porters, and Stouts.  All our beer is made in-house, served-in house, for you and our neighbors.  It is with great pride that we serve you our small-batch craft brews.  Here is the opening line-up.  Enjoy!
