The Greek letter sigma is used as a summation operator in math, engineering, and in science in general. We wanted to name our brewery something that was personal to us and represented how much beer is a part of our lives, so we thought it was a good fit. Sigma, to us, means that brewing is the summation of our lives, and sharing it with others is what has made us whole.
At Sigma, we are just regular dudes that have all lead different lives, and over the years the one thing that always kept us connected was our passion and love for beer and home brewing. As we started brewing not-so- shitty beer at home, we started to wonder if one day we could make beer our jobs and not just our favorite pastime. From there, “The Brewery,” as it became known, was something that we all fantasized about.
About 7 years ago, we decided to stop fantasizing. We took a hard look at ourselves and knew that we didn’t have what it took to start and run a brewery, so we rubbed our hands together and got to work. We did our research, we (drank) did our homework, and we convinced not only ourselves, but others, that we (sort of) knew what we were doing, and if nothing else our passion and drive could make “The Brewery” a reality. We will be the first to admit we don’t know everything, but we are sure as hell going to enjoy learning from the process.
So come hang out with us and tell us if you think our beer sucks or not, cause either way, we are going to love what we do and we can’t wait to share that with you.
