Penn Beers

Since our early inception as a German-style brewery, We have brewed our lagers according to the strict quality standards of Reinheitsgebot, using real German hops and two-row barley, with no added corn or rice fillers. We take extra steps to brew our beers precisely and cellar them perfectly – like using copper kettles for optimal heat control and double-decoction grain mashing to release fuller flavor.  And we lager Penn in horizontal tanks to achieve a cleaner, crisper finish.  Although we’ve branched out beyond our core German beer varieties, we’ve continued to apply that same German precision and attention to detail to ales and stouts, still brewing all of them by hand with premium ingredients.
