At Beech Bank Brewery, we believe the best beer is locally made from the freshest ingredients we can find.  We think our local community wants and deserves a quality product.  In short, we want to make the best beer we can for the best customers we can think of; our neighbors.  And, if the neighbors mean the universe, so be it.


  • Beech Bank Brewery will be a responsible citizen and neighbor.  We want the best for our community and our customers.  In return, we want our customers to choose us again and again.  

  • Beech Bank Brewery will not release a product we are not fully behind.  If we don’t like it, it never sees the light of day.  And, we’ll test it thoroughly to make sure!

  • Beech Bank Brewery will always use the most local ingredients we can find; local, state, country, then the rest.  We’d like to eventually be able to say the only thing imported was the sun light and the rain.

What’s in a Name

It all started in 1850 (or 1853 depending on our Google skills) with a little poem, by a little-known poet, in a little-known settlement called Beech Bank.  That’s when Sara T. Bolton wrote a five-stanza poem that inspired our brewer to paddle his own canoe.  The spirit of this poem is captured on a plaque in the park of Beech Grove and in the heart of a brewery called Beech Bank.

Paddle Your Own Canoe

By Sara T. Bolton

Voyager upon life’s sea,
To yourself be true,
And whatever your lot may be,
Paddle your own canoe.

Never, though the winds may rave,
Falter or look back;
But upon the darkest wave
Leave a shining track.
Paddle your own canoe.

Nobly dare the wildest storm,
Stem the hardest gale,
Brave of heart and strong of arm
You will never fail.
When the world is cold and dark,
Keep your aim in view;
And toward the beacon work,
Paddle your own canoe. …

..Would you crush the giant wrong,
In the world’s free fight?
With a spirit brave and strong,
Battle for the right.
And to break the chains that bind
The many to the few
To enfranchise slavish mind,-
Paddle your own canoe.

Nothing great is lightly won,
Nothing won is lost,
Every good deed, nobly done,
Will repay the cost.
Leave to Heaven, in humble trust,
All you will to do:
But if succeed, you must
Paddle your own canoe.
