About Modist Brewing Company

At Modist, we push past traditional brewing by embracing creativity and unconstrained experimentation. 

This starts with the approach to recipe development taken by our Head Brewer, Keigan. Contrary to starting with a style guideline in mind, then moving forward – he starts with a flavor and experience in mind, then works backward. And since we’ve decided to not be bound by style guidelines, he’s free to use whatever ingredients in any amount with whatever technique he wants to create a new beer experience. If you have 8-10 hours of free time… you should ask him about it.

To enable this philsophy and to enhance our creativity, we created a custom built brewhouse that allows us to make the beers we want to make. It’s centered around the region’s first mash filter. This piece of equipment allows us to use any grain in any percentage – and do so while using a fraction of the water and energy of a traditional brewery. If you have another 8-10 hours of free time, you should ask him about it.
