Escutcheon Brewing Company

"Mind Your Draft"

Escutcheon Brewing Co. started with the friendship between two guys who both really like beer. John Hovermale and Art Major met while John was working to open a different brewery in Winchester. While that venture didn't work out, their friendship did...

John, a master brewer, began over 15 years ago and has worked for breweries in Vermont, Maryland and Mississippi. Art is an accomplished entrepreneur who has founded other successful businesses. Their combined background and experiences, not to mention their passion and drive to create good beer were the perfect ingredients to build Escutcheon Brewing Co.

John brews the beer. Art keeps the lights on. John developed the recipes and brewery design. Art built the branding. Both drink the beer...

What is up with all the weird, hard to pronounce words?  Well, Art spent some time in the merchant marine and wanted to incorporate that experience into the brewery, hence the nautical theme.  The brand name, the beer names and the taproom design all reflect Art's time in the industrial maritime industry.

Good beer brings good people together. We have a lot of fun working together and taking our beer very seriously.
