Toppling Goliath Brewing Company started in May of 2009 with Clark and Barb Lewey after months of dangerous experimental home brewing projects that claimed the Lewey’s garage. As the recipes gained favor with family and friends, they decided to build a small nano-brewery “on the hill” in Decorah, Iowa. Brewing 3 times a day, for almost 2 years on a ½-barrel nano-system, led to a demand that could not be kept up with. When a 10-barrel system lost its home in Washington State, it relocated to NE Iowa and became the workhorse of our brewery. Soon, it too was incapable of keeping up with local demand.
Today, brewing on a new high-quality, 4-vessel, 30-barrel system; and packaging on a new state of the art filling line, the demand still outpaces supply, but not their eagerness! Their brews are mainly distributed throughout NE and central Iowa, and SW Wisconsin. A pleasantly quenching California Common lager, refreshingly clean hop forward ales, bold double IPA’s, barrel and wood aged beers and attention-getting imperial stouts have become the foundation of their quest to make big beers In small batches.
