At 93 Octane our goal is to produce great beer for everyone to enjoy. We have a passion for Craft Beer and we constantly strive to find the best Local Breweries to carry at our PRIDE Locations. The name of our Brewery is a play towards our Roots. We have been running Gasoline Stations for over 40 Years as a Second Generation Family Business. We look forward to showcasing our Beers at our St. Charles Brewery or at many of our PRIDE Store Locations. Cheers!
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.

#8 DDH Black IPA
As the 8th in a series of dry hopped IPAs, (8) DDH Black IPA is dry hopped twice with Chinook, Citra & El Dorado hops and brewed utilizing roasted malts. This Black IPA is both hoppy and roasty at the same time. It is the perfect wintertime IPA.
Burn Out is a smoked lager, golden straw in color, with an aroma of crisp embers over a smoldering campfire. This beer is built off a base of beechwood smoked malt, straight out of Bamberg, Germany, along with a complement of light, slightly sweet malt character. The result is a wildly complex, yet easily crushable fall-time lager. Our Helles Rauchbier is collaboration with Brother Chimp Brewing Company out of N. Aurora, IL.
