TEMPEST

(noun - a violent storm, commotion, disturbance)

IT’S THIRTEEN YEARS SINCE THE FIRST BEER BEARING THE NAME TEMPEST WAS CREATED WITH A COBBLED TOGETHER KIT IN AN OLD DAIRY FARM IN KELSO. THE UNPREDICTABILITY OF WHAT WOULD FOLLOW AND THE VOLATILE NATURE OF BREWING MADE FOR THE PERFECT STORM; AND THE NAME TEMPEST PARTICULARLY APPOSITE.  

THAT TURBULENCE CONTINUES TO EXCITE AND DRIVE US YET OUR BREWING PHILOSOPHY HAS NEVER ALTERED: TEMPEST MAKES BEER WITH A TRANSCENDENT QUALITY, BIG ON FLAVOUR, TOTAL RESPECT FOR THE INGREDIENTS AND A RELENTLESS DEDICATION TO QUALITY AND CONSISTENCY. 

THE TIME IS RIGHT TO REINFORCE THAT PHILOSOPHY AND BECOME THE FORCE OF NATURE THAT CHALLENGES A MOVEMENT THAT INCREASINGLY PLACES STYLE OVER SUBSTANCE.
