from pipe dream to pint glass

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Originally a home brewer, Derek DeFranco decided to pursue his dream of sharing great beer. The journey hasn’t been easy - but when you’re following your passion, everyday is a victory.

He’s our namesake. As a right handed twin to his left handed twin brother, he is the Mirror Twin. He pushes and pulls the way we think of beer. The way we taste beer. And the way we celebrate with it. He challenges the standard, and sets brand new ones. Keep dreaming. Keep challenging. Keep pushing. Keep drinking.

The Neighborhood

There's nothing quite like the community created while enjoying a good beer. Great conversations, new friends and good memories are all part of the experience. We want to take that experience out of the taproom and into the community. National Avenue is one of Lexington's re-emerging areas and we couldn't be happier to be a part of its growth.

If you have an idea or unique opportunity for us to give back to this great community, we would love to hear more about it.
