2nd Shift Brewing was founded in 2009 by Steve Crider in New Haven, Missouri. Surrounded by the rolling hills of central Missouri, Steve and his wife Libby made the best use of space until it was clear that we needed more space. Steve and Libby looked for over two years at new spaces in the St. Louis area until they found a small warehouse in the historic Hill neighborhood of St. Louis. They opened a small tasting room and expanded their staff from 2 to 9. Their new space not only allows them to interact directly with the customers, but also gave them the ability to continue to grow. They've added three additional fermenters (with plans for more) and three locally-made Foeder Crafter foeders. All of this expansion means more beer.
2nd Shift brewed about 800bbls in 2016, 2000bbls in 2017, and plans to double that again in 2018. We plan to add a couple more fermenters along with additional foeders and possibly a canning line as well.
