Funkwerks first opened its doors in December of 2010 by owners Gordon Schuck and Brad Lincoln.

Let’s rewind to 2007: Gordon’s brewing skills and recipe ingenuity landed him with a gold medal-winning Saison at the National Homebrew Competition. Meanwhile, Brad’s passion for craft beer originated from his need for a good beer after a long day of crunching numbers as an accountant in Portland, Oregon.

The dynamic duo first met during the winter of 2009 while attending the Siebel Institute of Technology in Chicago. They were both studying Brewing Science. After being immersed in beer for the better part of five months, the two graduated, with flying colors, and shared a mutual desire to open a brewery. With Brad’s numbers-know-how and Gordon’s super-star-palate, Funkwerks, was born.

Saisons originated as Belgian farmhouse ales brewed for farm workers during summer months. Known for having a dry profile and complex fruity aromas, the Saisons of today are brewed year-round and generally have a higher alcohol percentage than their historic counterparts.

Although Funkwerks, through the years, has focused primarily on Saisons and sours, they’ve allowed for plenty of room for experimentation and now offer a range of Belgian and American styles, barrel-aged small batches, and other specialty brews.
