ABOUT

The Talking Waters taproom opened in July of 2016, but our love for brewing started long before that. It's quickly become a lifestyle that the three of us - Nick, John & Phil - are so damn passionate about. Our small team is connected to every step of the process and we're proud to be building a fun, adventurous, craft beer loving community in the place where we grew up.

Hear the full story of how we got this party started in that video over there!
