Isley Brewing Company is the true definition of microbrewing. Owned by Richmond native Michael Isley,we opened our doors on October 26th, 2013. Mike immediately hired head brewer Josh Stamps and began the brewing process on a three barrel brewhouse while fermenting in seven barrel fermenters. Our very first beer at Isley was 'The Bribe' - still our one and only 'flagship' beer - a delicious oatmeal porter that will quench your thirst and soothe your soul.
We started distribution within about three months of opening and have been in many restaurants in and around central Virginia. We've practiced controlled growth during our first year, slowly adding in additional fermentation space, and more kegs.
Our goal here at Isley is to embrace the talents of our professional brewer with the passion commonly found in home brewing to create a true crafted beer. Our intent is to think outside the box every time and push limits while not following the path that others tend to follow.
Come try the fruits of our labor!
