A dash of barley, a pinch of hops

The first thing to know about brewing is that basically, it's cooking. The brewer is a chef, the brewery is his kitchen and the brew kettle no more than a pot. Ragtime is brewing beer like it ought to be...fresh, handcrafted by a local brewer and with the best ingredients available.

Ales vs. Lagers

Beers are generally divided into two categories, either Ales or Lagers. Traditionally, lagers have a crisp flavor with a clean finish while Ales offer a fruitier flavor that lingers. At Ragtime, we feature a variety of both Ales and Lagers, each having a character and richness all of its own. Ragtime brews beers that range in color from gold to auburn to brown and to black. The bottom line? Judge a beer based on taste, not color.
