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.


20W50 Stout



Dark rich and full bodied. Strong notes of light and dark chocolate along with coffee, toffee and roasted barley. Smooth finish with hints of alcohol.

Joy Ride



A Blood Orange Hazy IPA.

Running On Empty



This light body APA has notes of Pineapple, stone fruits & citrus fruits. Excellent for the hot summer days, Running On Empty really brings us back to the Pale Ales that got us excited about craft beer in the first place.

Test Drive - West Coast IPA



This medium body West Coast Style IPA is a classic rendition of the IPAs that started the hop-head movement. Characterized by bitter citrus notes followed by piney resinous undertones.





Imperial apple strudel Berliner Weiss, made with Waldmeistersirup.

An Elmhurst Brewing Co. Collaboration

Coming Soon




Brewed to reduce the amount of Gluten, this golden ale is easy drinking and is an American classic known for its simplicity. Developed in collaboration with Folds of Honor, a portion of every beer sold goes in support of the families of our fallen and disabled service members.

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.
