I&I means “Unity”. It is how we feel about things. We socialize with our guests, share a pint, swap bottles, talk about beers we have tasted, breweries visited and take your input in consideration when starting that next strange brew. We enjoy the experience at I & I Brewing as much as our guests, and like to share with them instead of “serving”.
We experiment on new and interesting flavors and ingredients – a lot – over 100 different recipes last year alone. It keeps us and our guests interested. We like to push the limits on what is accepted in beer, all while keeping the essence of beer. We don’t have a house yeast, grain or hop. We like to keep an inventory of a fairly diverse selection in order to give us the freedom to make what suits our mood and the season. Our fruit beers are mostly comprised of fresh ingredients that we peel/dice/puree or what have you to get it into the beer. We don’t like to use syrups and extracts and so far have not had to. Our taps are constantly rotating, sometimes an old favorite returns, but more often than not it is a completely new beer. We don’t name our beers, we just describe what went in them and/or what style it is.
For us it is all about the beer. We love to make it, drink it, share it, talk about it, etc…
Oh, and we also like reggae, reggae rock, ska, dub, dance hall etc.. It is what is usually playing at the brewery, and if I am not at the brewery I am probably at a show
