Regional Craft Brewery
Brewing Boldly in the Heart of Pennsylvania
Our goal is to provide our small hometown of Mifflinburg, and the rest of our market, with delicious and approachable craft beer. You won't find any gimmicks here - just damn good beer.
Rusty Rail Brewing Company began with a group of passionate craft beer drinkers and a shared dream. In 2013, that dream became a reality with a small batch of beer brewed in the parking lot outside of our brewery in Mifflinburg, PA. Since then, after over two full years of construction and rigorous recipe trials, we have graduated from a ten gallon pilot system to a 15 barrel (450 gallon) brew house with 300 barrels of fermentable space.
We may have graduated to a bigger system, but our Head Brewer and the rest of his brewing team, prides themselves on brewing these large batches of beer with the same artisanal attention of small-batch brewing.
Our 15 barrel brew house allows us to produce up to 8,000 barrels of beer per year and, with our 12-spout Gai rotary bottling system, we have the ability to fill 3,000 bottles per hour (two cases of beer per minute).
Our beer is available for distribution in 1/6 barrel kegs, 1/2 barrel kegs, two 12-pack cases and 24-pack cases throughout a majority of Pennsylvania and now in New Jersey. Our goal is to cover the entire state of Pennsylvania by 2017 and to have a solid presence throughout the tri-state area by 2020.
As Rusty Rail Brewing Company continues to grow, our mission is to never lose the look and feel of a small, hometown brewery. You will be able to find our entire team, from our sales and marketing group to our brewing and operations staff, out in the market working tap take overs, beer tastings, beer dinners and other events. To us, it is just as important to put a smile on your face as it is to put a beer in your hand.
