Rare Form Brewing Company is a small five barrel brewery with a sole devotion to finely made craft beer.

Our passion is to explore, invent and experiment within the realm of the ale. We get very excited about the brewing process and see it in parallel to many other creative processes. For this reason, we see brewing as an art form.

Bringing together the several geographical sensibilities in which we have lived and loved – the Midwest, West, Northwest and now the Northeast – Rare Form Brewing Company creates beer that speaks to our experiences, interests, and stories from these places. We reflect on our history from these regions in shaping our recipes as well as in how we designed our taproom.


Beer selections from Rare Form Brewing Company:

  • Satan’s Gut Oak-Aged Imperial Stout
