We make independent craft beer.
We are a small, local brewery that produces full flavor craft beer and is 100% privately owned. We choose the suppliers that provide ingredients that go into our recipes and have the ability to create innovative beers that celebrate our independence. With twenty taps at Guardian, you’re sure to find the beer you seek.
