Strike Brewing Company


About Strike Brewing Co.

From their website (Jan. ’17):

“What’s in a name? In our case Strike Brewing Co. is the culmination of a dream that was forged on a baseball field. After a storied run through college, single, and double A baseball, Drew Ehrlich, our award winning master brewer, was ready to launch his next adventure.

“In July 2008, he and Jenny Lewis (collegiate swimmer, serial entrepreneur, and our CEO), were celebrating a birthday and giving her future husband (Drew’s best man and former teammate), a hard time about his allegiance to watered-down beer. Jenny and Drew asked, “Why not brew session beer for everyone that tastes good?”

“Thus Strike Brewing Co. was borne from that fiery discussion. Drew knew he could balance superior malty flavors with a variety of hops to create truly wonderful and unique beers. Far better tasting than any mass produced beer. With a burning passion he set off to do just that.

“Fast-forward to 2011 and our first Session Series-Blonde, Brown, Porter and Wit started rolling of the line. Later that year we added an IPA, Double IPA, Imperial Red, and Stout to the line-up. In 2014 the Strike brewing Co. Warehouse taproom opens. In July 2015 we launched a venture with the renowned NHS, Inc.’s Santa Cruz Skateboard Company which produced our Red Dot Classic Blonde Ale. An immediate hit, plans are already in motion to collaborate with other NHS brands as well.”
