It takes areal character to make beer the way we do.

In 1928 Great Grandpa Dr. Beau Winston exploited a loophole in the prohibition laws and opened a Roadhouse with his friend Colby “snake” Johnson. For more than 5 years beer and moonshine whiskey was served without cost to people who paid a nightly membership fee to get into the roadhouse. Grandpa Beau made beer in a building on the same property as the roadhouse while Colby brewed corn mash whiskey and bathtub gin at his  home a few hundred yards further up the creek from the roadhouse.

Bearly Legal Brewing is still family owned and still brewed in the same place in the mountain on a creek thirty miles from nowhere. We don’t think good beer can be made any other way
