Man Skirt Brewing got its name back in 2008. I had been home brewing for a few months and needed a label for my bottles. I wanted it to be something different, something fun, and something that spoke a little bit about me.


So I thought hey, I hate pants and I love my Utilikilts! My wife came up with the original logo and Man Skirt Brewing was officially born. The artwork and website were later updated by the ever-talented Justine Sherry. Both the beer and the brewery name were a big hit, and I continue to wear my Utilikilts around the brewery.
