Taproom FAQs


Tom Kowalke – Fredrik – Impulsism – For every beer released in the first couple of years of Karben4, Fredrik created a painting to go with the beer. We weren’t packaging at the time, so we loved the idea of having this visual connection to the beer. We would host a party every time we released a beer to show off the new art. We also used the painting as sound panels. We loved the way that we could have different ways for guests to plug into the brand, visually with the paintings, reading the colorful beer descriptions that Ryan wrote, as well as tasting and smelling the beer.


Maybe…Make us an offer!


Yes. We are exploring other taproom locations and hope to maybe someday build a new production facility.


A lot of reasons. Quality of product is a big reason. First, cans keep the beer away from light contamination. That is just not something that bottles can do as efficiently. Glass failure is also a deciding factor. When glass “fails” it is a lot more dangerous than when aluminum fails. Cans are also easier to package and store, more efficient spatially, and are more efficient in recycling. Finally, we have made the move to a more automated packaging process and simply didn’t have the room to install a packaging line for both cans and bottles.


After almost dying of “humane methane” (farts) we decided that shelling thousands of eggs wasn’t worth it anymore. We’ll let those continue to be holiday treats.
