Archetype Brewing began in 2016 as an idea, coming to fruition in early 2017. As the founder, Brad Casanova and COO Gaines Myer, we are no strangers to craft beer, having worked (and drank) in the industry for nearly two decades in the most highly regarded geographical beer region of Western North Carolina.
Our focus is to produce clean, true-to-style American and Belgian-inspired ales as well as a line of mixed-culture ales. We believe creativity is one of the driving forces behind the craft beer industry, but we also believe quality should come first. Because of this, we strive to make high-quality, creatively complex beers to stand alongside our flagships.
In our travels we’ve met a lot of different types of people, had a lot of different beer, and seen a lot of weird things. One thing remains constant – Beer brings people together. We also believe that there is a beer for just about everyone; whether you’re an everyman, a lover, a ruler, or an outlaw, our goal is to substantiate that belief.
