“ A sincere artist is... one who tries to create something which is, in itself, a living thing..
Stillwater Artisanal Ales
Brew Master: Brian Strumke
although packaged within a medium often overlooked for its artistic merits, our desire is to offer something new and intriguing
The goal of Stillwater Artisanal is just that, living art.
We present more than just a fine crafted beverage, rather an occasion that evokes an emotion and inspires contemplation. For art is not a sum of actions but
rather an approach to life.
We draw our inspiration from the world around us, whether that be a season, location, or even humanity itself. Our intent is to encapsulate this muse, exhibiting an artistic rendition to the best of our abilities.
Stillwater Artisanal is the nomadic ‘gypsy’ brewing venture headed by Baltimore native, Brian “Stillwater” Strumke. A former internationally renowned techno DJ and producer who rather quickly made his mark in the homebrewing community for his often odd concoctions and unconventional brewing methods. Competitions often yielded wins in the more esoteric categories.
Traveling the world to collaborate with various breweries hand-crafting small-batch, authentic ales. Within its first year, Stillwater Artisanal was awarded ‘#2 Best New Brewer in the World’ by international beer rating resource
Ratebeer.com and to this date has always made the global top 100 brewers in the world.
