Throwback is a small, inspired brewery dedicated to crafting delicious, farm-fresh beers from local ingredients. Our goal at Throwback is to acquire most of our ingredients (such as hops, wheat, barley, fruit, and spices) from local farmers. While we are not quite there today, it is our vision that eventually 100% of our ingredients will be sourced locally, including the malt.
This isn’t a new idea. Many breweries in the pre-prohibition era sourced their raw ingredients locally and then processed them before brewing. To that end, our brewery is really a throwback to the past. We strive to make small batches of high quality, artisanal beer from the freshest of local ingredients, with the intent that these beers be enjoyed by our surrounding communities.
While the name Throwback really represents our nod to the past, it also has a second meaning, which is throwing back a beer with friends and celebrating the good times. Since our beers are very approachable and easy to ‘throwback’, we think our name does a great job capturing the spirit of our brewery!
Finally, Throwback seeks to conduct business in ways that are healthier for the environment:
- All of our spent grain is used by local farmers as feed for their livestock.
- We encourage our customers to purchase our reusable growlers and to recycle our bottles.
- We are also investigating how we can use solar energy to heat the water used in the brewing process.
