The recipes used in the Silver Gulch Brewing line of beers come from the owner, Glenn Brady. He crafts our beers to please the five senses, not necessarily to meet beer-style guidelines. We think you’ll agree with the results!
The brewery facilities were originally constructed throughout the 1997 season, and incorporate the efforts (blood, sweat and tears!) of the founders and local craftsmen. The results speak for themselves. Co-located with the newly renovated pub & dining facilities, the 12,000 square foot brewery is an awe-inspiring work of process technology.
The brewing vessels were purchased used from the Conner's Brewery in St. Catherines, Canada and have a total capacity of 375 barrels. From start to finish, the brewing process takes 1 long day with up to an additional six plus weeks for fermentation and aging. After the beer has been conditioned, it is cold-filtered through a state-of-the-art German system and then bottled on the 200 bottle-per-minute bottling system. This system cleans, fills, caps, labels and repacks the bottles back in their cases, and the rest is history.
Our beers are available year round in bottles, growlers, kegs and on tap in the bar. Growlers are 1/2 gallon refillable glass jugs. The best way to get brewery fresh beer without getting the whole Keg.

RFA is an American-style IPA brewed with American 2-Row, Rye, and a touch of deeply-roasted malts to impart of deep-red tint and malt depth to balance the massive hop additions.
