Big Rock

Big Rock Brewery has been at the forefront of the craft beer revolution since 1985. Our three initial offerings have grown to ten signature beers, ongoing seasonals, four ciders and custom-crafted private label products enjoyed nationwide. We believe today, as our founder Ed McNally believed in 1985, that to raise one glass is to raise an entire industry.
Big Rock Brewery. Craft for All.

We are river surfers.
