Guiding Values

Our mission to is foster positive community change through the power of dialogue and laughter -- one delicious handcrafted beer at a time. The following values will guide how we monitor and manage our online and social media spaces and platforms.

Create a positive and safe experience for all. Together as a community, our health and growth will depend on a mutual respect for each other, adventure, challenge, hard work and a desire to make all who open our doors, pages and sites feel as though we are welcoming them into our own homes.

Connect our customers to each other to build and foster community. We are a community-driven, civically-minded company and believe in building strong relationships. In a world that is becoming increasingly disconnected, we seek to offer an oasis for personal connections – a space where people feel welcome, safe, cared for, appreciated and whose presence is a source of delight. We believe in the power of human connection and believe it is the foundation of our community. This space is intended to bring people together, not apart.

Empower our community to communicate about what matters to us. We strive to create and provide space to discuss, consider and engage in efforts that build community, improves our quality of life and encourages creativity and collaboration. We seek to leave our community better than we found it for generations to come.

Help our community discover quality, craft beer and food. We will use high-quality ingredients, innovative recipes, and provide exceptional service.  We are dedicated to cleanliness and innovation.

Encourage investment in our community. We believe that the community of Sandpoint is our most important stakeholder. As such, when our brewery succeeds, we aim to give back to the community in gratitude for the success of our business.
