Off Color Brewing

Off Color Brewing makes beer. Sometimes we do other things but not as well.

We’ve produced award winning, beers on the global stage. Now we just do it for ourselves applying our brewing knowledge, experience, and creativity to create a new breed of classically inspired American beer.

History

At some point John and Dave were born. They did other stuff for a while and then they figured out they were better at making beer than at the other stuff. So that’s what they do now. They met while both studied at the oldest and most respected brewing school (of the two… and by the brewers that went to the one) in the U.S., the Siebel Institute, in 2008 and the brewery was envisioned while they both interned at Metropolitan Brewing afterwards.

Most of Off Color’s business plan is based off of Doug and Tracy at Metro knowing what they’re doing, so you should go buy some of their beer too. After cutting their teeth at larger breweries, the two somehow convinced enough otherwise-very-smart-people to invest enough money for them to buy some big shiny things to make their own beer in. So that’s what they do now.

Off Color Brewing is an independent craft brewer.
