If you've been following our other social media, you may know that last week @stbenjaminbrew and @christinabrews were in Denver for the Craft Brewer's Conference. Lest you think it was just a week of drinking beer, we were hard at work the entire time (well, most of the time). There was a trade show for buying [...]
Not a ton of changes to the brewery this week, but the place has been cleaned up and ready for our floors to be coated next week. The week after will be a big one, our equipment is being moved to the site! We will post a ton of pictures then, the brewery will be [...]

The beer will be brewed at Brouwerij Dilewyns with Anne Catherine Dilewyns, the youngest female brewer in Belgium. The drawing will be held [...]
I'm thrilled to announce that St Benjamin is no longer a one person operation. From now on the "we" in post will be the actual "we" not the royal "we". Christina Burris, formerly of Bombshell Brewing Company, has joined the brewery. You may have seen her posting online or pouring beer at events. She [...]
