The idea for Brewtus Brewing Company started in 2012 in John’s garage brewing on a home built Brutus-10 style brewing system. However, back in Christmas of 2005, Jason received his first brewing equipment kit as a present. Jason claims to have started brewing as a poor college kid who had a taste for $140 a case Belgian beer. The kit consisted of a couple buckets and a pot to boil on the stove and a couple other necessary tools. Determined to conquer the poor college kid blues, Jason set out on brewing beer to his own taste, never using a kit, and diving head first into a Belgian Dubbel style beer from a recipe the he created based on things he read. While, he recalls the beer being “drinkable” he decided to pick up and read every book and piece of information he could get his hands on.
