The Brew House is a place for art. It is a place where a residency artist can work when inspiration strikes at two in the morning, a place for a third grade field trip to see what the community is doing, and a place to rediscover your love of creation and appreciation of art on a day off. We’ve separated this site into three main places: Live, Work, and Play because the Brew House is something different for everyone.
