Please join us this Friday from 4-6pm as we sample some fine beers from Weyerbacher Brewing.|
Weyerbacher Brewing Company was founded in 1995 by Dan and Sue Weirback.
In the beginning, Dan was an avid homebrewer and big fan of the
blossoming new craft beers that were hitting the market. One weekend in
late 1993 while vacationing in Vermont, Dan and Sue toured the Long
Trail brewery, which was in the basement of an old mill. Dan was looking
for a new business venture, but it was Sue who suggested they start
seriously thinking about starting a brewery.
Nearly two years later, Weyerbacher Brewing Company was born in a
livery stable in downtown Easton, PA. Launched in August of 1995, the
original concept was to make some mainstream microbrews like Pale Ale
and ESB. Boy, did we take a wrong turn! In 1997, we brewed our first big
beer, Raspberry Imperial Stout, which happened to be one of Danís
favorite homebrew recipes. As hard as it was to get people to care about
another Pale Ale in a sea of pale ales, people certainly took notice of
Raspberry Imperial Stout. The following year, we brewed Blithering
Idiot Barleywine and also began brewing Belgian beers including our
Merry Monks Ale (originally called Belgian Style Tripel). This was when
our path became clear Ė make full-flavored, high-quality brews for a
discerning customer. We havenít looked back.
