Diebolt Brewing Company gets its ingredients from top-notch suppliers, and its metal tanks from outer space, where they're made. But its way of operating? That comes from somewhere else. With a grandfather who pressed grapes in his garage, and relatives making champagne in Alsace-Lorraine, the family who owns Diebolt has edible alchemy in their blood. While French flavors influence the brewery's beer styles and art deco look, the founders' experiences of growing up in small-town America influence the warm, communal vibe of the taproom.
The result: a friendly, conversation-filled hangout where beers are born, growlers are filled, and friendships are formed over frosty gulps. Though it always changes, the available brews might include the Figgy Noir that's made with Algerian curry; the Biere de Triomphe, which spends time in cabernet barrels; and the C'est La Saison, tinted with orange, white pepper, and toffee.
