Why Choose Faculty?
Much like a college or university, Faculty Brewing Co. is a platform for idea-sharing and education. We are completely open-source, meaning all of our recipes are shared publicly in an effort to encourage discussion and constructive criticism, as well as encourage home brewers to replicate our brews. You can find our recipes on all of our can labels and listed on our website. Our goal is to foster a sense of empowerment in people to ask questions, discuss, learn, and create.
As a brewery, we aim to make all decisions through a green, inclusive and sustainable lens. From our packaging, tasting room snack options, and water usage, we put an effort to make decisions backed by what’s best for the environment. Our packaging is all recyclable or compostable. We use some of our spent grain to make cookies that we sell as a snack option. Plus, we proudly offer growler fills so you can purchase one from us or bring one from home to fill with beer or Oddity Kombucha. It’s just 5% of the carbon footprint to fill a growler than it is to recycle an aluminium can or glass bottle.
With inclusivity and coherence in mind, our beer cans each have a pattern to give you a visual representation of the complexity or intensity of the beer. Numbers are also assigned to indicate the beer’s character. Based on the functionality of school course numbers, 101 Lager is the most approachable, with 415 West Coast Pale Ale in the middle, and our bottle-conditioned Graduate Series in the 900s.
To support our local community, a member of our team chooses a local charity that’s close to their heart. This remains our chosen charity for the month. On Thursdays, we launch an experimental beer and $1 of each 355ml glass of it sold that day is donated. We call this Experimental Beer Thursday (EBT)! Our tasting room beers are served directly from tank to tap, so they couldn’t be any fresher. This also saves a lot of water that would otherwise be used to wash kegs.
Together with our sister brand, Oddity Kombucha, we aim to grow the craft beer and kombucha market share by helping consumers learn and make educated decisions. We are community builders through fermented drinks. We connect with our customers through beer chat, knowledge, and education. We want to encourage idea-sharing within the community through our space, classes, and brews.
