Founded in 2011 by Bill and Jeff, Light the Lamp Brewery was built off a group of dads with two things in common; their love for hockey and great beer. Back in 2010, they traveled to Europe searching for the world's best beer. After having talked to some local brew-masters in Munich, the group of dads realized that the world's best beer doesn't come from a place; it comes from a mindset. Great beer needs to be accompanied by lively conversation, laughter, and most importantly memories. These brew-masters accepted the group of dads as their own, and even referred to them as their colleagues. They much rather enjoyed being called colleagues!
After years of research, development, and plenty of sampling, the colleagues began to brew their own beer. Up first was the infamous Red Line Ale that's still on tap today. Inspired by that love of hockey, Light the Lamp has always stayed true to it's roots in naming their beer. All of their craft beer carries a hockey title and a story, from the 1980 Miracle American Ale to the Shorthanded IPA, each beer has it's own journey.
