This adventure into opening the doors to our very own microbrewery began years before our November 2013 Grand Opening. It’s a story of friendship, mountain biking and basement brewing. Individually, all four of our owners had homebrewed at some point in their journey to love the craft of brewing. Jason Spikes, now our Head Brewer, had the most extensive history and passion for brewing. The initial days of the unofficial Black Warrior Brewing actually occurred in his basement!
