Phase 2 Brewing is the evolution of Brew LoCo, an independent coffeehouse and homebrew shop opened in 2014 by sisters Cathy Frye and Mary Battaglia. After teaching many brewing classes and helping brewers upgrade equipment, in 2018 Cathy and Mary built a brew house inside Brew LoCo, got a brewers license and opened Phase 2 Brewing. This "mini nano brewery" pours all of that advice and experience into super fresh, small-batch, craft beer.
Phase 2 beers are available only at Brew LoCo and only for as long as each batch lasts. Our flagship IPA is named Sibling Rivalry. The Citra and Mosaic hops in this beer vie for your attention while working well together. Seasonal beers like Silence of the Yams, a sweet potato ale brewed for fall/winter, appear on tap for a season and then retire for a while. New beers, some on cask, roll out often. To maximize your Phase 2 experience, join the Crescent Club for member perks like reserved bar seating and 20 oz pours instead of pints for our beers at Brew LoCo.
