Historic Brewing Co. started in 2013 in Flagstaff with the purpose of bringing an unparalleled experience to the market. Despite a limited knowledge of the beer industry, founders the Kennelly family found a home amongst the remnants of the Mogollon Brewing Co., in Flagstaff’s east side.
Historic hired brewmaster Ryan Burac and apprentice Zack Stoll to create their line of beers. They initially rolled out two mainstays, the Piehole Porter and their hopped-up pilsner, Everyday Special. Throughout this period the company quickly expanded their operation and in 2015 demand for their product surged and the Kennelly family expanded their brewhouses to downtown Williams with Historic Barrel + Bottle House. At the same time they filled the bar space of three other locations including the Grand Canyon Wine Co., Staion 66 Italian Bistro and Canyonlands at Bearizona. In 2019 Historic began canning operations and now has state-wide distribution. Their beers can also be found on tap in several bars across northern Arizona.
In stride with Historic’s success, the company gives back by doing community brews for organizations and non-profits to help raise money and spread awareness for causes. Since 2018 Historic has had a collaborative with Grand Canyon Conservancy for which they ran a five beer series to help increase awareness for the Grand Canyon community. Ten percent of keg sales on GCC themed beers go towards the Conservancy’s efforts.
