OUR STORY

In the beginning, Alga was just two guys making beer on a stovetop, but that quickly turned into an obsession that couldn’t be ignored. Soon the one gallon setup increased to five gallons, and from five gallons to ten gallons and so on. What originally was just a fun hobby that provided us with something to drink was now turning into something that people actually WANTED to drink. Fast forward to today, Alga Beer Company is the culmination of all those days spent over stovetop and the apartment balcony with a propane burner. Alga Beer Company produces five year round styles, a slew of seasonal offerings, and special release every now and again. It’s been a whirlwind journey to get to this point, but it’s nowhere near over. Those days of giving away beer at art shows and crawfish boils helped form this wild idea, and we’re thankful for every opportunity and person we’ve met along the way. So, with that said, give us a try. We hope you enjoy!
