What's in a name?

Back in our homebrew days Lyle and brew-buddy Paul Singleton would make a 5 gallon batch that they had hoped would amount to 2 cases of 22 oz bottles. As luck would have it, they would always come up just two bottles short of their goal. Almost every time they would say to each other, “we’re two shy again!” Two Shy sort of stuck as an unofficial name.

Later on, two of our friends (Paul and Erik) who began brewing with us left for other ventures. Missing them, we felt we were Two Shy of our original brew crew.

Now we feel that the name fits and it’s an allegory of life. Sometimes life doesn't turn out exactly as you had planned, but coming up Two Shy is still pretty great.

What we stand for

It should be interesting, diverse, and challenging. When we started out, we were unhappy with the state of American beer.

For us, beer means more than just a hoppy IPA and a few porters. We see beer as a landscape full of interesting possibilities. From deep dark stouts to rich creamy Belgian trippels; beer represents a spectrum of possibilities.

At Two Shy Brewing, we stay true to our origins. We know you’re like us - lovers of good beer. Beer that stands on its own. If you’re a lover of beer like us, come and enjoy a cold one at Two Shy Brewery.
