Stillwell gets down to business at its new brewing location

Just brew it


Something new is brewing at Stillwell.

The Barrington Street beer bar is starting its own brewery in the warehouse of Propeller Brewing’s Gottingen location.

“We make beer in other people’s breweries so far,” says Chris Reynolds, one of three co-owners of Stillwell. “North, especially, have been really kind to host us.”

Crush, Two, Three and Millie are a few of the beers they’ve created at North up to this point.

However, Reynolds realized Stillwell wasn’t “really earning any return” on the beer it was producing. So, the team started renting space at Propeller to make what he describes as a “slow, old-fashioned style of beers.”

Reynolds is in charge of the brewing and recipe development. He says his style of brew is largely inspired by the easy-drinking beers currently on tap in Belgium, Germany and the US. Many of the Stillwell-made beers will be low in alcohol, along with being oak fermented and bottle conditioned. 

They’ve already begun their brewing, but they don’t expect bottle releases to be out until well into the summer.
