sisyphus-logoOur beers list is always changing. Sisyphus Brewing aims to educate beer drinkers about the variety of styles, ingredients and the brewing process. We want beer to be onsite only. Our plan to grow will be to build out a 100 seat theater that will feature comedy and live music. Sisyphus Brewing aims to: 1) Offer new beers on a weekly basis 2) Offer live entertainment in the form of live podcasts, comedy, and music 3) Create an atmosphere of education and beer enjoyment The name Sisyphus Brewing comes from an ancient Greek myth about a man who defied the gods in order to return to the world after he had died. His punishment for this act was to push a rock up a mountain for all eternity. When the rock reached the top of the mountain, it rolled back to the bottom, forcing him to start all over again. Albert Camus, a French novelist, compared the human experience to that of Sisyphus, claiming that we find ourselves in a similar situation, toiling meaninglessly on the side of a mountain. However, lucky for us, we have delicious beers along for the ride. See you soon.


chankAlphabetician. Builder of Fonts. Chank Diesel. That’s me. And I create everything from custom fonts for corporations and ready-to-buy fonts for professional designers to the occasional free font for the masses. My fonts are seen everywhere, instantly setting the intended tone for packaging, advertising, video games, publications, you name it. It may only be 26 letters (well, uppercase and lowercase, plus a fistful of symbols) but what they say is more than what they spell. You’ve got a project. A vision. The letters A-Z. Now, what do you want to say? [email protected]
