Why Doctrine Brewing? What is the doctrine? What does it all mean? These are questions I often receive, and the answers are not simple.
When running a brewery, numerous factors drive decisions. It's tempting to focus on maximizing sales by making beers as accessible as possible. Cost reduction becomes a consideration when purchasing ingredients. There's also the constant desire to increase production for greater sales. Simply put, profit often takes priority over purpose.
However, amidst these challenges, it's crucial to remember our core principles. We stand for beer that is truly original, distinct from the ubiquitous offerings of other breweries. Quality ingredients are non-negotiable; while something cheaper may be acceptable, it will never match the same level of excellence. By trying to please everyone, we risk exciting no one.

Aging Our Beers
At Doctrine Brewing, we want you to experience our beers just as we intended them to be. That's why each of our beers comes with a best before date stamped on the rear of the neck tag. However, don't be discouraged if you find yourself enjoying our beers after this date.
The best before date is calculated based on assumptions of less-than-optimal storage conditions during the beer's journey from our brewery to your glass. It takes into account the time spent outside the fridge, and beyond this date, we cannot guarantee that the beer will maintain its original flavor profile. However, with proper care and storage, many of our beers can continue to offer delightful drinking experiences beyond their best before date, with some even developing fascinating new complexities over time.
Below is some storage advice for our beers:
This enchanting Baltic Porter only improves with age. Allow its strong roast flavors to mellow and new complexities to emerge. When cellared correctly, this beer can easily last several years beyond its best before date, providing an ever-evolving drinking experience.
Immerse yourself in the enchanting allure of "Will-o'-the-Wisp," our pilsner-style brew.
