Every brewery has their humble beginnings. Our story began in Jim's garage in Sparta, New Jersey where he has been perfecting his craft over the past few years (well, there and Germany.... seriously, Germany). During that time, we were operating as Sparta Brewing Company. It was a great brand with a logo featuring a small bird design based on the piping plover of the coastal town of Newburyport, Massachusetts, a temporary candidate location for our brewery.
The brand has evolved considerably ever since. We probably suggested and explored well over a hundred names within our team before unanimously and enthusiastically landing on Oak & Iron. We'll tell that story soon - we think you'll like it. In the meantime, here are some highlights of beer labels from our year as Sparta Brewing Company.
