We look forward to showcasing our Beers at our St. Charles Brewery or at many of our PRIDE Store Locations. Cheers!

Our Brewer

Alex started Home brewing when he was 18 with his Father and quickly realized that he wanted to become a professional brewer. He passed the Cicerone Exam a few months after his 21st birthday and at the time he was the youngest ever to obtain that certification. He first started at Finch’s Brewing Co in packaging and eventually moved onto Two Brothers starting in the packhall department then worked all the way up to Head Brewer. During that time, Alex took a sabbatical from Two Brothers and attended the Siebel Institute of Technology earning the Master Brewer Certification. Through that program he studied at the Doemens Academy in Graefelfing, Germany. Now at 93 Octane his vision is to brew WORLD CLASS American and German Style Beers through innovations in the brewing process that he has been developing for the past five years.


PRIDE Piper New England IPA



*Recipe revision with more hops! A well-balanced dry-hopped hazy New England IPA is made with Mosaic and Simcoe hops. Just like the traditional Piper would entice with his tunes we use great Craft Beer to entice our customers. Enjoy this beer while listening to your favorite band/musician at your next concert or festival.

10W-30 Stout



This medium octane Stout is dark, rich, and has a full body. 10W-30 is a lower octane version of its big brother 20W-50. With notes of dark chocolate, coffee, toffee, and roasted barley; this stout is ideal for the year-round dark beer drinker at 7% ABV.

Wheat Wine - American Style



Wheat Wine is a strong ale that includes 50% wheat in its grain bill. Similar to a Barleywine, Wheat Wine is sweet, malty, and high in alcohol. At 11.3% Wheat Wine is sure to keep you warm during even the coldest Midwest winter.

Cherry Red Vette-Blonde Ale with Tart Cherries



Cherry Red Vette is a light and refreshing Cherry Blonde Ale, brewed with a ton of Michigan Tart Cherry puree. Named after the iconic Cherry Red paint color of vintage Corvettes, Cherry Red Vette is guaranteed to turn heads as it cruises into your pint glass!

Turbo - Coffee Porter



When the turbo kicks in so does the flavor! This coffee porter has all the rich and chocolatey characteristics of a traditional porter but with an extra boost of craft brewed coffee. Coming in at 7%ABV, TURBO is a perfect way to either start or end your day.

Blueberry-Pomegranate Sidecar - Milkshake IPA w/ blueberry, pomegranate, milk sugar & vanilla



As the third Milkshake IPA in the Sidecar Series, Blueberry-Pomegranate Sidecar is brewed with a ridiculous amount fruit Puree, a heathy dose of milk sugar and just a touch of vanilla to compliment the sweetness. The tropical IPA takes control of the handlebars, while the fresh blueberry and pomegranate flavors sits sidecar; creating a silky-smooth ride!

(6) TDH Triple IPA - Triple Dry Hopped Triple India Pale Ale



As the 6th in a series of dry hopped IPAs, (6) Triple Dry Hopped Triple IPA is the highest ABV IPA we have brewed to date! Coming in at 11% ABV, this Triple IPA is loaded with an irresponsible amount of American and New Zealand hop varieties and then we added even more…and more…and more!

Hugger Whip



“Cruisin’ around in your Hugger Orange Whip back in the day was a classic. Inspired by the classic muscle car color Hugger Orange, this American orange Wheat Ale reminds us of another nostalgic piece of americana… the Dreamscicle!
