About Us

mis·tress ˈmistris/ noun  – a woman in a position of authority or control

We launched Mistress Brewing Company based on our love of making great home brew and an even greater love of consuming it. We often bounced around the idea of starting a company together, specifically creating something we are very passionate about.   After several years of research, education, and home brewing we knew this was what we had been looking for all along.  With the support of our families we decided to take the plunge.  In January 2016 we found a home for our dream right in our own backyard – central Iowa.  In September our first keg was sold to I-35 Spirits in Ankeny.

Thank you to everyone that has provided their time, effort, and support to make this dream a reality.

We look forward to sharing our dream with you.

Owners of Mistress Brewing Company and Creators of Good Beer Behaving Badly

For those of you that want to know why we are called Mistress Brewing Company…  Well, when we discussed with our families the time and effort required to make beer for others Shawn’s wife said:

“This is going to take so much time and attention the brewery will be your Mistress.  You should name it that.” – and the brand was born.

 We are proud to be part of the Independent Craft Brewer’s Association.
