TWO BROTHERS WITH A DREAM
Our plan to launch a business together was hatched above the tree line in the Rocky Mountains at the top of the world. We were both in our early years of college and had both recently discovered a love for craft beer. We were enthralled with the emerging craft industry so we decided, then and there, that one day we would open a brewery of our own. Fast forward eight years, we had traveled the world, developed our skills, and our passion for craft beer has remained just as strong. This is when we started to make a plan to bring Nomadic Beerworks to life. After a couple years of hard work, and long hours, we opened our doors. Spring 2019 we slid our first pint across the bar and we've been serving our South Austin community ever since.
THE COMFORT ZONE NEVER PRODUCED A GOOD STORY, OR PHENOMENAL BEER
Our restless thirst for adventure knows no bound. We encourage carefree and daring exploits because we believe whole heartedly that life is lived in the moments when you sit on the precipice of discovery. That moment of elated joy, which can only be felt when experiencing something great for the first time, is what drives us forward. We share our discoveries through the beer we brew. We invite all to sit down, enjoy a pint, and refuse to settle for boring beer!
BEERS TO A BETTER WORLD
We are inspired by the world and inspired to make a difference. This is why we work every day to come up with new ways to reduce our impact on the world.
Here are the environmental steps we've taken since opening our doors in 2019.
Eco Friendly and Conscious Sourcing - Our taprooms uses only biodegradable and recycled single use materials. This means that all cups, lids, straws, paper products, and even trash bags are all eco friendly. We take on the additional cost of these Earth conscious products so that we take less from our planet, and that traces of our business don't outlast the business itself.
Re-use and Recycling - We pioneered a program in which guests can bring us their PakTech can carriers to our collection bins for re-use if possible. We collect the tops, inspect them, and sanitize them so that they can be re-used for future beer releases. This eliminates additional plastic from entering our earth ecosystem, does not require additional fossil fuels for transport, and eliminates the cardboard packaging required for new toppers.
Wildlife Preservation - Nomadic Beerworks has raised funds to support local wildlife conservation and maintenance of trails in our city by making donations to the Austin Trails Foundation. More support for our wild places coming soon!
Beer Ingredients Never Get Wasted - After extracting all of the fermentable sugars and flavor out of the grain we use for brewing, there is still a lot of nutritional value in the "spent grain." Not ones to waste anything, we put this grain to good use. We have a partnership with a local farmer who feeds this protein and fiber rich grain to his cattle. Now that is some full circle thinking!
Future Plans - Here at Nomadic Beerworks, we never settle. We are committed to taking additional steps toward operating an even greener business and keeping Austin Beautiful. We've explored everything from renewable energy to Carbon Dioxide Re-capture technology because it is worth fighting to keep our community healthy and beautiful!
