DEVIATE FROM THE NORM.
Brewers Mike and Greg relocated from Cincinnati to Indy in 1995, and soon after they were introduced to their first Belgian beers hooking them on good beer ever since. It progressed to the inevitable challenge of making their own home brew versions of the beers they loved, and with the gift of their first brewing equipment from a friend, they started their beer-making journey two decades ago. From the beginning, both found common ground — having similar tastes in beer styles which progressed to a shared obsession of trying to figure out how their favorites were made, while sharing in the fun of sharing the results with friends which kept them motivated to make more. Playing to each other's strengths, Mike is excited about the technical part of brewing and Greg enjoys determining flavor combinations and fun new things to try. Their joint passion to make fun, creative craft beer coupled with their individual strengths has made for a top-tier brewing team.
It's in the name: "Deviate from the norm" is the guiding mantra that Mike and Greg apply to their brewery design & approach and how they create their recipes. Often craft beer is held to standard beer style guidelines, where every aspect is defined and often confined by long standing definitions. Although one can respect the talent to brew a well-made beer done to style, they believe that craft beer should be fun and push the envelope of what is traditional. Show Less
