ENKI Brewing is the 20+ year culmination of the friendship between two beer lovers, John Hayes and Dan Norton. ENKI’s mission is to “Make the World a Friendlier Place – Two Beers at a Time” just as John and Dan have been enjoying and sharing beers with old and new friends, alike.
Our mission is to "Make the World a Friendlier Place -- Two Beers at a Time". Being friendly is even part of our business strategy! Because ENKI friends are so important to us, we have a Frequent FOE, or Friend of Enki, program. For every 10 Growler fills, you get one FREE! New rewards, limited release specials, and other surprises await our FOE's, too!
Come by the Tap Room and ask an ENKI team member to get your punch card!
As cooler weather nears and the leaves begin to change, ENKI Fest fall seasonal, makes its debut. The premier German influenced ale draws on classic ingredients such as Vienna malts and Hallertau hops. A chewy, rich malt bill is complimented by a smooth finish and subtle, yet, spicy hop aroma. ENKI Fest pours maple syrup in color with a light, tightly laced head.
You can find our tap handles popping up in local bars and restaurants throughout the Metro area! We also sell our kegs to liquor stores for those of you with home keg systems. Ask your local liquor store for our kegs. Read our ON TAP page to find out more. Check often, as our list is always growing!
Our tap room is open Wednesday through Friday, 4-10, Saturday noon -10, and Sunday noon - 6 pm for regular business hours, but we often have special activities going on in the tap room. We're collaborating with local restaurants to bring in their menu items, releasing new and exciting beers, and involved with community events. Beyond our tap room walls, ENKI Brewing is participating in festivals, special events, and samplings all throughout the west metro area. Come join us for a beer and to make some new friends.
