The story of St. John Brewers is an interesting one. A couple of college buddies get sick of 9-5 life on the mainland and move to St. John, get crappy jobs and start living in paradise. Missing craft beer popular back on the mainland, they start making their own and soon, St. John Beer is born. Today they have their own place, The Tap Room in Mongoose Junction in Cruz Bay and are serving at least 4 different types of beer, a root beer, and an energy drink called Green Flash.
St. John Brewers
From their website:
Presently after celebrating the 10-year anniversary of brewing that first batch of Tropical Mango Pale Ale, St. John Brewers have gone on to create and bottle several different styles of beer as well as a root beer and an energy drink. Their products are sold throughout the Virgin Islands as well as in several states in the U.S. Additionally, Vyas and Chipman own and operate The Tap Room, the flagship brewpub of St. John Brewers located in the heart of Cruz Bay, St. John. Here all their styles of craft beer are available to locals and tourists alike, and it is here that they can be found working on their next great brew.
What's next for Vyas and Chipman? The two are excited to continue expanding their brand and bringing an "island escape in a bottle" (or on draft) to the next island-hoppers or stateside island-dreamers for years to come.
