Here’s a Little About Us

PHBC: Obsession Curiosity Discovery

What started as a burning desire to brew classic world beer styles in the garage for ourselves became an obsession to consistently craft technically flawless interpretations of modern beer to share with everyone else. That obsession—intertwined with a deeply intellectual curiosity—compelled us to think bigger in every facet of what we were doing. Today we stand at the threshold of a new brewing frontier. We invite you to take the journey with us.

Rolla R&D Brewpub: Conversation Education Celebration

Our story begins in downtown Rolla, Mo. where we discovered most of our favorite conversations started, ended, and centered on great beer in great places with great people. Our cozy brewpub, just a few blocks from Missouri University of Science and Technology, gave us a rich environment to fulfill our passion to research well-crafted beer, collaborate and communicate in an inclusive and inviting atmosphere, and celebrate everything from birthdays to funeral wakes and all the life in between.

St. James Taproom Brewery & Gardens: Exploration Collaboration Fermentation

In 2014, part of our local conversations led to a unique collaboration with one of the world’s most awarded wineries, St. James Winery. While collaboration is alive and well in craft beer, most are done from a distance and on a short-term basis. Our collaboration is a long-term partnership where customers have a place to experience beer and wine production on a fermentation campus where they can taste beer, wine, cider, eat great food pairings, and enjoy the endless possibilities of new flavors in a gorgeous restaurant and gardens.
