About Small Town Brewery
After home brewing for over two decades, Tim Kovac founded Small Town Brewery in 2010. Kovac’s brewing focus developed as he unearthed the lore of his unique family brewing history, which dates back to the 17th century. The story of his ancestor’s brewing practices – which included gruit-based recipes that use herbs, flowers, roots and berries – have inspired Small Town’s innovative offerings that pay homage to the roots of modern brewing. Small Town uses unique ingredients to create specialty beers with an unmistakable taste of nostalgia.
