Our Story

At Kindred Spirit Brewing, it’s all about beer and people.

We love brewing beer, but our true passion lies in building a vibrant and welcoming community. We recognize that our customers are the heart of our brewery, and we invite everyone to come see what we’re all about and join their neighborhood.
