and on the eighth day, god said - "let there be stubborn beauty".
we made our first homebrew on a cold february day in 2009. a spectacular imperial ipa dripping with columbus hops. we named this beer “nummy nummy” and it was, well…nummy nummy and i think we all knew we were onto something.
since then we’ve continued to brew at a torrid pace gaining a few accolades along the way. in 2009 we received 3rd place in the best of show round in the homebrewtalk.com homebrewing contest (300+ entries) with an imperial porter called “porter justice”.
in 2010 we entered the samuel adams longshot homebrewing contest along with a couple thousand other people. we received an excellent score of 41.5 from the bjcp judges for our rye imperial ipa called “golden boy”.
most recently we took first in the best of show round of the 2011 homebrewtalk.com homebrewing contest (400+ entries) with our rye saison named “how rye i am”. can you tell we have a little rye fetish here? good.

from the guys who brought you stubborn beauty. oh wait, these are the guys who brought you stubborn beauty. well as long as you’re here, take a minute and meet the people who make the beer.
and what better way to do so via some of our favorite quotes. this should give you an idea of what's
on the inside, or at least a peek at our dementia. we look forward to some real interactions with everyone at the brewery, beer tastings, festivals and most likely any random night at eli's...

"We all die. The goal isn't to live forever, the goal is to create something that will."
"Let us toast to animal pleasures, to escapism, to rain on the roof and instant coffee, to unemployment insurance and library cards, to absinthe and good-hearted landlords, to music and warm bodies and contraceptives... and to the "good life", whatever it is and wherever it happens to be."
(Hunter S. Thompson)
