About Faith American Ale: Cuts through dust; cuts through a hard day’s work. Refreshes, slakes a thirst and the concerns of the day when the day is done. Beer that tastes like beer; With character and a hoppy flavor that does not overwhelm…Not a sweet or like a malted drink but beer that smells, looks and taste like life well lived; Like the fields and the sky and the sun have been brewed into every sip. This Ale is inspired by the Catskill Mountains and the countless days of recreation and comfort they have given my family.

About Calico Man IPA: In the early 1800’s, farmers wore disguises of Calico, a new material imported from India, in their fight to resist a corrupt system of rent for land they worked. They called themselves “The Calico Indians.” With Calico Man IPA, Faith American salutes their spirit and their place in the enduring fight for Freedom.

About Faith American Brewing Company, LLC

Faith American Brewing Company, LLC was founded in 2015 as the first step toward a dream that is decades old. Having visited the Catskills as a boy and spent some of my most precious days here, I always suspected I would have a future with these mountains. Twenty-six years ago, the land was bought that is the home to Faith American. Here in Delaware County, times have been challenging and the once prosperous region has suffered considerably; it was a dream of returning this land and even this region to prosperity, a dream that commerce could restore this magnificent corner of the world to a thriving and vital place in America's economy that gave birth to the idea of a brewery. It is our hope that Faith will create and sell beautiful beers of all varieties.

We will brew at the old dairy farm site and explore this marvelous craft, living in harmony with the land and the people here, harvesting our potential together as Faith American Brewing Company brings joy to our customers and revenue to the community. May fortune smile on this venture and the good people of our town, these mountains and our blessed nation. Free of shame and without apology, we thank God for the abundance in our lives and for this opportunity. For more information on Faith American Brewing Company visit
