Foghorn Story

Foghorn Esty and Steve
Esty on the left. Steve on the right. Cool payphone far right.

Foghorn Brewery is the dream of Steve & Esty, two New Brunswick dudes from very different backgrounds. Steve comes off a twelve-year post-secondary academic career resulting in two undergrad degrees, one masters degree & most of a PhD. You’d think all of this education would be enough to deter him away from his dream of owning a brewery. Esty’s reputation as a New Brunswick brewer is unrivaled only by his passion for craft beer. After putting his name on some of New Brunswick’s best known craft beers, Esty figured that the Valley was ripe for a new brewery. Esty & Steve connected, and Foghorn Brewing Company was born.

The result? One foggin’ sweet spot in the Kennebecasis Valley serving some of New Brunswick’s most innovative and delicious craft beers.

And what about the name? It’s not about being the loudest, and it’s not about being the biggest. The foghorn is an icon that represents innovation in New Brunswick. It was invented right here in 1835, the foghorn is a guiding light that keeps us focused on improving what we do, and growing through innovation. Whether it’s in the beers we develop or the partnerships we pride ourselves on, we’ll make sure it’s a foggin’ cool ride either way.
