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.

This light body APA has notes of Pineapple, stone fruits and citrus fruits. Wingman acts as a reminder of the Pale Ales that got us excited about craft beer in the first place. 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.




“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!
