Circa 2013, Joe’s Brew appeared in the physical realm from a distant sci-fi steam-punk world conceptualized by Joseph Viray and co-created by artist Franco Perez. This tight bar feels more like a tasting room for the microbrewery upstairs. With ingredients imported from Germany, this proudly local under-rated craft beer is low-key making waves in your favorite bars for the past 6 years.

Owned by Marco and Joseph Viray, Joe’s Brew is a no frills, home-grown beer initially crafted for friends but has since grown more popular over time for its rich, crisp, and hoppy taste. In retrospect, I have been enjoying their beer unbeknownst to its local origins. I’m happy to have had the chance to learn and meet the man behind the brew.
