The ice cream we scoop onto our cones (still handmade today!) and into our sodas & sundaes has to be the best-- the creamiest-- and dreamiest.

    Smartmouth Brewing Co. is a craft brewery that prides itself in the craft of brewing. We start with the finest whole malt, adhere to stringent processes, and geek out to the science of brewing. This makes our beers what they are – smooth and clean. We have three flagship styles: Alter Ego Saison-brewed in the farmhouse style of a Belgian Saison, is an effervescent and refreshing beer with fruity notes, a hint of pepper and a dry finish; Murphy's Law Amber-Balanced malty essence comes through with a subtle roastiness. It is countered just so by hops that keep it smooth; and Rule G IPA - Unfiltered and outrageously dry-hopped, this beer has a big hop nose and a dry clean finish that accentuates its citrus and grapefruit undertones. We also have rotating seasonal and special flavors. We invite you visit the brewery for tastings and tours.
