This St. Thomas favorite opened up back in 2015 as a small batch, tap-only brewery. Located in the heart of St. Thomas’ vibrant Frenchtown, it is the best place for craft brews on the island. Founder and brewer Kevin Brown is a former home brewer who went on what can only be described as a beer pilgrimage to Belgium, where he tasted his way through all 507 Belgian beers. Impressive. He brought his newfound knowledge back to St. Thomas and created one of the island’s most exciting craft breweries.
