Strange Craft is the realization of a dream by an out-of-work IT Tech. Suddenly unemployed, he needed a Plan B. So with his retirement savings, home brew recipes, and 20-gallon home brew equipment, he set out to open Strange. The love of brewery began with Tim’s first batch for his wedding in 1997. After his third batch boiled over and flooded the kitchen, he was moved to the back deck. A chance encounter with a CraigsList ad in December 2005 for a professional brew sculpture lit the flame that eventually became Strange Brewing Company, now Strange Craft Beer Company.
Strange opened on May 19th, 2010, as a one-barrel microbrewery. Starting out small allowed him to focus more on the recipes than on running and building a small business. Brewing one barrel at a time allowed Tim to experiment and tweak, refining recipes for the day when a larger brew system would be employed.
