The mission of Gotham Brewing Company is to make uncompromised craft beers and to continue to uphold the long tradition of brewing and beer culture in the City of New York. By following our mission we hope to bring the people of New York City together through a shared passion and enjoyment for craft beer. We strive to make the quality beers New York deserves.
We take every step of the brewing process seriously so that we can create the best beer that we can. But with that said, making beer is fun. Super fun. Everything about it is great. From recipe design all the way through to tasting of the finished product (obviously that part is fun). This is why our slogan is Sophisticated Enough. We can take our craft seriously, yet have a blast doing it, and love every step of the way. And we hope that we convey that with every beer we make.
How We Got Here
In 2006 I moved to New York City after completing my bachelors of science degree in snow science mechanics (think avalanche research) from Montana State University in Bozeman Montana. Growing up in Alaska and living in the northwest, I was exposed to some amazing craft beers (one of my favorite breweries is Alaskan Brewing Company), that once in New York, I no longer had access to. After several years of enjoying some of the local and east coast beers, I decided to finally fulfill my desire to start homebrewing. It didn't take long before I recognized my passion for the brewing science and process. Following my passion further, I attended the American Brewers Guild and completed their Intensive Brewing Science and Engineering Program. After that, I set up the LLC and am now in the process of raising funds to make the brewery a reality. In the mean time I'm working to perfect our recipes. I can't wait to share the beers we create with New York! I hope you love them as much as I do.
