Patrick and Bryan brew small batches that allow them to focus on constant experimentation, and they have been known to create exotic beer styles such as their Hibiscus Saison, Squid Ink Black IPA, Chamomile Ale, Lemongrass IPA, and Szechwan Peppercorn Red ale. Their ongoing offering includes Squid Ink, the India black ale, and Nautilus, the hibiscus saison, and their beers are now available in more than 60 Bay Area locations.

Pac Brew Lab was recently featured in a new video series called Meet the Makers, which gives a closer look at this unique brewing duo and the laboratory they’ve worked to create:
