Sceptre Brewing Arts has had an interesting life. Originally opened in 2017 as Oak Brewpub, it quickly closed. Then it reopened... then closed again. After closure #2 the owners of Atlanta's Argosy beer bar scooped it up to open Sceptre. What a ride. Trevor Jones knew the owners from Argosy. He's brewed with Atlanta Brewing Co. (Red Brick Brewing at the time) and Orpheus. Sceptre's beers use 100% craft malt and, when possible, craft malt sourced from the Southeast.
We chat about Sceptre's first year, what's coming up from the brewery, their collaboration with ATL Beer Gang to brew Black is Beautiful, craft malt, and wrangling wild lager yeast. Good times.
Trevor Jones relaxes in the Beer Guys studio after sharing and discussing some of his beers.
