About Brewery Extrava
Ex.trav.a means arising out of a Journey.
Ex.trav.a is a celebration of life’s Journey and the memories created along the way. We believe the most impactful experiences in life come from a willingness to explore, examine and interact with the world around us and especially when we are sharing that Journey with others. Come on a Journey with us!
Our Brewing Philosophy
The beers we create are heavily influenced by time spent in Belgium and the Netherlands and the great memories we have of the places, people, AND beer we had the good fortune to cross paths with during those Journeys. They left a lasting impression on us and we hope the beers we are inspired to craft will leave a lasting impression on you.
We believe our role in creating great beer is to allow each ingredient to shine through. We carefully select each ingredient and then strive to create the perfect environment for mother nature to work her magic.
Because beer is made from natural ingredients the characteristics (or terroir) of those ingredients, and collectively of the beer brewed from them, will vary based upon the geographic area each ingredient originates from as well as the weather patterns present during a particular growing season. We believe terroir and the natural variation each ingredient contributes to a particular batch of beer should be embraced and celebrated.
As brewers we simply focus on providing each ingredient with an environment that allows it fulfill its potential to influence the flavors, aroma, and quality of the final product. Our job is to partner with mother nature to coax each ingredient to contribute as much as possible to our collective enjoyment of the final product.
Tradition defines the boundary for our core beers which pay homage to many of the traditional beer styles of Belgium. Its also the starting point for our journey.
Innovation means always challenging ourselves to evolve as brewers, hosts, business owners, and individuals. To strive to create unique and memorable experiences for our customers and employees.
Quality means paying attention to detail, exercising patience, learning from our mistakes, expanding our knowledge, and above all else committing to doing our best each and every time.
