Bringing Faith, Craft Beer, Pizza and Community Together

Good News Brewing Company Logo


We met in a Bible Study and started brewing beer together with our friends and family. We crafted our skill of making beer and pizza, and now we are sharing it with you.

  • We are not a restaurant and we are not a bar. We are a brewery that serves wood-fired pizza.

  • We are a gathering place where families, friends, outdoor enthusiasts and dog lovers can come together and share Good News over a pint.

  • We are about making friends, and having fun, and providing hospitality for your party, wedding or other special occasion.

  • Have you ever been to a place and asked someone for a beer and they said, let me find your server? That won’t happen at our brewery, as we believe in teamwork and we are all here to serve you.

  • Overall, we are driven by our faith and want to be generous and cheerful givers to our community.


Are you looking for a fun, laid-back place to meet with friends or family? Need a place for date night? Looking for an outdoor venue that is family and dog friendly? Need a fun and unique spot to host your party, wedding, or special event?
Gather with Good News Brewing!


Are you a pizza enthusiast and want to try a new take on artisan pizza? Looking for a place to eat where the whole family will enjoy? Have you ever experienced sourdough wood-fired pizza?  Have you ever had our Vampire Deathwish Pizza, our number one selling pizza?
Eat with Good News Brewing!


Are you a craft beer enthusiast and enjoy classic and unique beer styles? Looking for those seasonal beers?  Thinking of Pineapple/Passion fruit in the summer, Pumpkin and Oktoberfest in the fall and Persimmon Christmas Ale for the Holidays?  Have you ever experienced Hazelnut Coffee in a stout beer?

Our work


It all started in 2003 when Dan received his Mr. Beer kit for Christmas. The beer made it to the fermenter and it sat there...for five years. He gave up on brewing until he heard about a local Homebrew Store and started brewing extract kits in a turkey fryer. Although more successful than the Mr. Beer kits there were more bad batches than good ones. Ask him about the root beer flavored brown ale (this was before root beer ales were cool).  At about the same time, Matt also started brewing extract kits at home and was having more success than Dan. The only problem was he was the only one that liked the beer because he was always putting peppers in his brew. We still can't get him to stop. If you ever have one of our beers with smoke, pomegranates, rhubarb or something else crazy, you can thank Matt. Dan started getting better at all grain brewing then had the crazy idea of doing electric brewing in the basement. It was going great until he almost burned the house down and flooded the finished basement with wort.
Around 2014, Matt joined Dan’s Mission Community (Bible Study) for their church. Dan showed Matt his all grain electric brewing setup (it was a mine is bigger than yours moment) and Matt felt the challenge. He left saying if this guy can do it, I can do it bigger and better...and that he did. Long story short, he did.  Dan and Matt soon started brewing beer together in Matt’s basement.
A few months later, Dan and Matt’s group did a book study called Flesh by Hugh Halter and learned the power of sharing The Good News by being human. This means having fun, celebrating, being in community, and having parties. Remember how Jesus did that thing where he turned water into wine? Once a month they had a monthly brew night where they would invite friends, family, strangers, and strange friends to party and brew and gather. They would always brew an extra five gallons to give away and share. They would share good news, stories, laughs, and beer.
Now, with the help of our head brewer, we have the opportunity to share Good News with you, because Everyone loves Good News.
