We work hard, but we also have fun. Heck, we have fun while working hard.
Everyone at the brewery starts early and works late, dedicated to making great, consistent, creative beers and providing a great beer experience. We all have one thing in common: We love beer and we love RBC. If you’re invested in your product, your work is fun. It’s that simple. Often you’ll find us hanging out around the taproom after our work is done, just because we love it here and we love each other. Feel free to say hello!
We believe in quality
While much of our beer is unique and experimental, we hold ourselves to the highest quality standards. We don’t send something out to the market unless we’re confident it’s as good as we can get it. Our brewers are trained professionals with a passion for the craft, and we hold monthly trainings to make sure each member of our staff – from the guy who sweeps the floors to the taproom manager and everyone in between – is learning about our craft. Everyone who wears the RBC staff shirts can talk about our beers, and that’s because we want to make sure you’re getting an accurate picture of what we’re serving, no matter who you ask.
We’re committed to creativity
You may have noticed some of our flavors lie outside the realm of the ordinary. There’s our Loganberry Wit, with that Crystal Beach and Aunt Rosie’s flavors we all remember from childhood; our vanilla cappuccino pumpkin ale that’s reminiscent of a nice, spiced pie; and we can’t forget our Sponge Candy Stout, made with real sponge candy from Watson’s. Our brewers are creative guys, and they love playing with tastes to see what translates from plate to pint. That’s where our experimental brews come from, many of which become favorites. Sometimes we discover a hit, sometimes we head back to the drawing board. So let us know if you love one of our one-offs. It just may make it to our year-round menu.
We create an atmosphere we love, and hope you enjoy it too
We tried to create two unique, different spaces at our Niagara and Chicago St. locations. You cannot go wrong sitting in the beer garden surrounded by flowers and trees at Niagara St. or taking in the production brewery from the 2nd floor mezzanine at Chicago St.
Since we spend so much time at RBC, we wanted to make sure it was somewhere all of us enjoyed. We like to have fun and drink beer and our taprooms experience revolves around the kind of stuff we enjoy, with the hypothesis that you’ll like it too.
So stop in and say hey. We don’t bite. (Well, most of us.)
We are always happy to talk about what we do when you’re not around, to make the delicious beer you enjoy when you are. Don’t ever be afraid to approach any of us and ask a few questions, be it about our brewing process, the beer itself, our taproom and atmosphere, or whether we’re Star Wars or Star Trek fans. (We have lots of opinions, promise.) Everyone at RBC is passionate about our product, this place, and a lot of other things, too. RBC is a place to make friends over a pint or two, so don’t be shy!
