The story of Crow Peak Brewing Company goes back to 2007, when owner and brew master Jeff Drumm brewed the very first batch of Crow Peak beer.

As the popularity of his brews increased the need for expansion arose, and in 2009 a full-fledged brewery was set up. While a good distribution system enables people to relish Crow Peak beers in different regions, there are some house specials that are only available in their tap room. Call ahead to schedule a tour around the brewery, and end it with a tasting session of fresh brews.
