RICK STIDHAM HAS BEEN BREWING BEER FOR OVER 20 YEARS…
When friend and now brewery co-owner Jerry Nawrocki expressed an interest in homebrewing, Rick bought him his first homebrewing kit as a birthday gift. It turned out that Rick took to the hobby himself and continues brewing today, more than twenty years later. Rick honed his brewing skills with every batch and over the years gained recognition as an award-winning homebrewer, taking home multiple best-of-show awards in competition.
When Rick decided to create the brewery, Jerry was the natural choice for business partner, having started Rick’s passion for beer with a curiosity of his own and the two having been friends since high school. Together they started Akasha Brewing Company.
From humble beginnings brewing 5-gallon batches in a kitchen at home, we now brew 15 barrels at a time, and serve up to 15 of our own beers, brewed on-site, at any given time. From the light, crisp, and drinkable Fehr’s XL to the tart classic Gose, the taproom lineup has something for all beer lovers.
All of our beers are unfiltered, unpasteurized, and vegan-friendly.
