Website Live, Taproom Livelier!

Welcome to the official website for Beards Brewery. We opened our tap room doors August 17th, 2012, and it has been a great month and a half. Thank you to everyone who has made it out. We have been overwhelmed by the positive response to our place and our beers.

Beards, both online and at the pub, is a place for people who love beer, and we have a lot of plans to add more features and functionality to the website as we grow. The home page will be updated regularly with what beers are on tap, though it may not be updated during service hours, so it is possible something listed on tap will be sold out by the time you get to the pub. Don't worry though, we always have "On Deck" beers to keep our seven taps flowing.

We don't have all the pages populated with content yet, but for now, check out the beers page, which will be constantly updated with our beers and their descriptions. On the right of the beers page, you'll notice the "On Deck" section. This will help you know what beers will be on tap next.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the pub. Let the Beards Brews flow! Happy drinking.
