Pariah Brewing Company was conceptualized in 2010, founded in 2016 and opened for business on February 11, 2017.

"We are fanatical - and quite probably even zealots - when it comes to doing it our own way. Our way means we never, ever settle. Our way means the enrichment of all, not just the few. We do what we do with pride, passion, and purpose. If you're looking for something unique, progressive, challenging - but ultimately very rewarding - then our beers are for you, our fellow pariahs. Cheers!"

Brian Mitchell
Founder & CEO
