For about a year Joe & Snapper had been working on renovations of the 815 Water St. property which is located in the heart of downtown Hillsboro. At the same time, Joe had been perfecting his first home brew. As the renovations progressed so did the beer recipe. Oct. 2012, Joe told Snapper "I think I got it! I think this is the one." Then the unthinkable happened. A few days later Joe was in a fatal car accident. Now what? Well, in true Verbsky strength and perseverance, you take the secret recipe, brew it & share it with everyone. Joe Beer was born. Not long after, 2e Brewery was established so we could continue to brew Joe Beer as well as experiment & expand to other brews. Today, 2e Brewery is in a new location, 206 E. Madison St. (yes, more renovations) & produces 26 brews & seltzers. Through organic growth, hard work & commitment we service over 230 locations that offer our beer on tap & over 450 locations that offer our beer in cans. This is a fun journey. Thank you Joe.
