Propolis Brewing~Seasonal Herbal Farmhouse Ales. Organic, Local & Wild-crafted. Propolis was established in June of 2012 with the sole intent to produce high-quality handcrafted herbal ales inspired by old world tradition, local resources and the rhythms of nature. Our ales are brewed with various wild-crafted herbs and are seasonally based. Many of our Ales blend several styles and are hard to classify by those that prescribe to the standards. We are primarily inspired by the farmhouse tradition of France and Belgium, as well as old world Ales that no longer exist. We are artists and scientists at heart and we aspire to challenge the norm. For thousands of years beer served as food and medicine; it had anti-septic, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. Old world ales were referred to as “gruits” and were created from various malted grains and bittering herbs. Proprietary herbal blends were passed down from generation to generation as was the knowledge of how each herb served to promote health throughout the year. We carefully selected local herbs and botanicals that bitter and flavor our ales. Our herbal blends are developed to harmonize with the spectrum of malt that shifts from light to dark with the sun and the harvest. The term “propolis” comes from two Greek words: “pro,” which means “before,” and “polis,” which means “city.” This ancient term came into being centuries ago when some early Greek student of Nature established the fact that honeybees use propolis to narrow the opening into their “cities,” or hives, to keep out unwelcome intruders. The term “Propolis” is a metaphor...a reference to a time long past. Propolis encourages us to look to our surroundings for inspiration and health. We strive towards managing a sustainable business. We source local and organic ingredients whenever possible and aim to work within the flow of the seasons as to promote others to find rhythm and balance within nature. We hand-craft all of our ales in extremely limited batches and seek the highest level of quality control as to ensure the most positive experience for our customers.

We have never experienced beer like this before. The wonderful combination of hops and botanicals - artfully crafted with care - just blew us away. We especially loved the beer that had been aged in wine barrels. Plus the place has a great vibe and...More

Don't go here expecting Coors. This is a special brewery and delivers a special experience. It is more like a winery than a brewery. The beer is so flavorful you'll sip them and often a 6-8oz pour is sufficient to enjoy. It is definitely a...More
