The Goal

taking craft furthur

Playing it safe never really was our thing. We like the unusual, the odd. We are continually experimenting to find out what’s next.

District Brew Yards

We brew our beers at the District Brew Yards (DBY), a first-of-its-kind collective, alongside three other local breweries. We also have a full kitchen run by the folks at Lillie’s Q, a two-time world BBQ champion.

Delicious Beers

We don’t like doing what everyone else is doing. That’s why we try to come up with beers that we hope you will think are unique. But that doesn’t’ mean anything if they’re not super-tasty too.

Pour Your Own Damn Beer!

Our taproom at the District Brew Yards is unlike any other. We share the space with three other local breweries, which is cool, but even cooler, you can pour-our-own beer. Each of the four breweries has their own wall with ten tap handles each.
When you arrive, we’ll give you a DBY card that you can use to activate any of those 40 taps and you’ll be charged by the ounce for whatever you choose to pour. Try just a little or fill a whole pint. It’s up to you!

The Best Place to Hang with Friends

Our spacious beer hall gives you plenty of room to stretch out with friends and family. Pour yourself as much or as little as you’d like of up-to 40 different beers on-tap from four different breweries (ATB, Burnt City, Bold Dog & Casa Humilde). And while you’re here, don’t forget the Q. Lillie’s Q that is. Our kitchen is home to World Champion smoke-stars Lillie’s Q. Order up a little brisket or pulled pork to go with your Pilsner.


Shiny Toys to Play With

At Brew Yards we have two state-of-the-art brewing systems to create delicious ales & lagers for you; a 30bbl brewhouse paired with 90bbl fermenters to keep large batches heading out to market for you thirsty folks and a smaller 7bbl brewhouse to keep experimenting with new, innovative brews that are exclusively available at DBY. This way we satisfy our own need to see where the road will take us.

Ultimately, it’s about freedom. When you’re a small brewery there are all kinds of constraints. But at Brew Yards, we’re able to do things, working together, that none of us could have done alone. This structure frees me to make the kinds of beers I want, the way I want to make them.
