We are passionate about barrel-aged and session beer.
Guardian is a destination craft brewery with eight year-round and 14 rotating taps. We brew a wide variety of beer styles that are made traditionally or have a modern twist to the recipe. With twenty-two taps at Guardian, you’re sure to find the beer you seek.
We focus on brewing with real ingredients.
Guardian uses real, whole fruit, nuts, spices, and other ingredients in our beer recipes whenever possible. Our tested process gives our beer flavors that are true to the ingredients used. Because of this, we recommend any fruited/spiced beer from Guardian be drank fresh, not aged.
We make independent craft beer.
We are a small, local brewery that produces full flavor craft beer and is 100% privately owned by women of the LGBTQ+ community. We choose the suppliers that provide ingredients that go into our recipes and have the ability to create innovative beers that celebrate our independence.
