Black Shirt Brewing Co.

Standing out is tough in a city where beer drinkers can simply walk a few blocks from their front doors to find quality suds in a multitude of new breweries. Since opening in 2012, Black Shirt has drawn crowds by aiming for continuous improvement in its beer lineup and offering value-adds like a killer back patio complete with a stage for live bands and a pizza kitchen with food that’s far more than an afterthought. While founders Branden, Chad and Carissa Miller started with a red-ale theme, the brewery has managed to use these self-imposed restrictions to turn out some of the most creative and consistently excellent brews in town.
