With a few short sentences on their website, High and Mighty Beer Co. captures the full attention of anyone interested in beer and clever writing. We're not just brewers - we're beer-evangelists. We're the Clergy of Zymurgy, the Priests of Yeasts, the Joyful Congregation of High Fermentation. Amen, man.
High and Mighty Beer Co. begins with Will Shelton of Shelton Brothers, a much-admired beverage importer known for getting the good overseas shit. In 2006, Will relocated to another tier in the distribution system by brewing the first batches of High and Mighty beer at Paper City Brewery in Holyoke, Massachusetts. Beer of the Gods, a German-style ale, was the first release, followed by the India pale lager Purity of Essence, St Hubbins Abbey Dubbel, and Two-Headed Beast, which have been added as year-round offerings, with a holiday seasonal called Home for the Holidays.
Unfiltered and unpasteurized with a temperate ABV, High and Mighty beers embody the time-honored production spirit and sessionability of European brews. Yet, the brewing philosophy is decidedly American, with adventurous concoctions that elude the rigid categorization of conventional style guidelines.
