The narrative of 3 Sons Brewing Co. originated with the bond between Corey Artanis and his son, Joe, who were united by their familial ties and a mutual passion for beer. This connection spurred them to pursue an audacious dream: founding a unique brewery that would stand as an homage to Corey’s trio of sons.

Inaugurated in 2019 after an extensive construction period lasting three years, the doors of this esteemed brewery swung open, inviting enthusiasts into an establishment brimming with remarkable beers crafted by 3 Sons Brewing.

Local tip: Since this road has heavy traffic, be on the look out for the “big orange” in the parking lot. If you pass the destination it can get annoying to do a U-Turn and get back on Federay hwy.

Upon entering, visitors are welcomed into a generous taproom space that provides sight lines to fermentation vessels situated beyond the bar area. This setup deeply engages guests in the intricate world of brewing at 3 Sons Brewing Co., thereby elevating their experience with each sip they savor.
