The heart and soul of the brewery is our team of award winning brewers.

 Their steadfast dedication to quality, passion for innovation, and unyielding commitment to brewing world-class beer is the driving force behind everything we do. Every time you raise a glass of Karl Strauss beer it’s a little “Thank You” to this gang of talented artisans.
