About the Brewery
About the Beer
Welcome to the site of Hop and Sting Brewing Co.
The name Hop and Sting pays homage to the tale of the Frog and the Scorpion. In this story, both creatures stay true to their nature despite knowing the consequences could be dire. While this story does not have a happy ending, it poses an interesting question: Do we play it safe while denying what is in our hearts, or do we risk it all to do what’s in our nature?
We started Hop and Sting Brewing Company because brewing great beer is our top priority. Our focus is on the quality of our beer and the experience it brings to the beer drinker.To do this, we are willing to risk it all. Why? It’s our nature to brew.
We brew high quality, small batch, craft ales and lagers which will be available in both draft and packaged forms. We are dedicated to producing only the highest quality beers, based on a foundation of education, experience, discipline, and attention to detail.
It is our belief that a brewery should start small. This allows a brewery to focus on the details that are extremely important to the overall quality of a beer and business. Staying small also gives us the flexibility to offer more variety, rather than simply 3-4 “flagship” styles. Our business strategy is to earn our reputation with craft beer consumers by making beer they demand rather than getting by on our size, looks, or a gimmick. We will grow in size only when demand warrants it, and only if our quality standards can withstand it. We believe this strategy will provide our customers with a unique and evolving experience.
Availability:Draft and cans (cans limited)
