Dark Sky Brewing Co. co-owner Ryan Sandlin first floated the idea of opening a brewery to his wife and now business owner Laramie Sandlin while delving into the craft home brewing. Dark Sky took shape in 2014 with the idea of creating a coffee-shop-style space where people could work, create ideas, have community events and congregate together.
Originally operating within 300 square feet of brewing space and 2000 square feet of taproom space, in 2016 DSB expanded to 1200 square feet of brewing space and 5000 square feet of taproom space. With increased demand for their product and DSB again expanded in 2022 to 6000 square feet of brewing space and 10,000 square feet of taproom space. Alongside this most recent expansion Dark Sky opened a spin-off concept, Atmosphere Kitchen and a beer garden at their downtown Flagstaff location. Atmosphere offers a delectable and eclectic take on classic pub fare that pairs well with their seasonally rotating beer menu. Dark Sky continues to adhere to the original qualities that the Sandlin’s wished to embody in their business concept. Thank you Dark Sky for your contribution to Flagstaff’s downtown and brewing community.
