  • How we went from "Wrought Iron Brewing Co." to "Good Robot Brewing Co."

  • Buying a Canning Line in the midst of a Pandemic

    Last May we had the unfortunate opportunity to celebrate our 5th birthday during a pandemic lockdown. When we opened the brewery and taproom in 2015, we couldn’t have possibly imagined this scenario in our five-year plan, especially given the well-known statistic that half of small businesses fail in their first 5 years.
