Ex Novo brews on a 10bbl system made in Oregon by Practical Fusion. Head Brewer Ryan Buxton is at the helm, brewing a mix of spot-on traditional styles and experimental and seasonal offerings. Ryan previously brewed at Epic Brewing Company in Salt Lake, and is a passionate creative turning out some amazing beer. We try to curate a taplist at the pub that has something for everyone, and you'll see it change often.
Our Chef Chris Greer likes to expand a menu beyond what is expected from pub food - often using new and innovative twists on comfort food. The menu changes throughout the seasons as we utilize the best the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
We are passionate about social justice and helping others, both locally and globally. We seek to partner with organizations doing good work and doing it well. We see these great organizations spending so much time seeking funds and we want to be a consistent fundraising tool for them. We make money from food and beer…and then give it away. It’s that simple. After covering our costs and building a small reserve fund, we donate our profits to charity. Once we’ve reached our commitment to our partners we’ll reassess and potentially add new ones. We're not superheroes or anything, just trying to do a small part in changing lives for the better.
