Respect for the Centuries of Experimentation
Lightning is dedicated to exploring and perfecting the classic craft beer styles that master brewers have been calibrating for centuries. We’re proud to reach these artistic goals, and extend them further, not only with clear scientific reasoning and methods, but with gratitude to the generations of brewers who’ve come before us.

Painstaking lagering and fermentation evoke the finest flavors
Where other craft breweries speed up their maturation and intensify flavors by using additives, Lightning gives beer the time it takes to develop these distinctive notes . . . naturally. Our infinite patience results in flavors our fans tell us they never imagined could be in a beer. Lightning trods the hard road, choosing the most difficult fermentation and lagering processes because it’s so much more satisfying to be great than to be fast. Crazy, yes, but crazy with great craft beer in mind!
