THE PASSION FOR BEER
Although just coming to fruition in 2015, plans for Bowigens started many years and many more beers ago. Long-time friends Kevin Wigen and Bobby Bowen met while playing in bands in the Orlando area. After years in the music scene, the two decided it was time dive into a new adventure. Brewing was a natural choice, as both fell in love with the creative aspect of it.
Bobby , who was living in NYC at the time moved back to Orlando and started working at a local brewery. After a lot of time learning the ropes, Kevin and Bobby agreed it was time to take the next step. The two begin brewing beers out of Bobby's garage, building equipment and cleaning — lots and lots of cleaning. All the while, perfecting their recipes and planning the next stages of their business.
We love being able to create our beers and share them with people. It's the ultimate medium. For people who say they just don’t like beer, we say you’re wrong — you just haven’t had the right one yet! It's the most versatile drink on the planet, and we can’t wait to share ours with you.
Bowigens is a craft brewery and we take the word craft very seriously. We rely on a strong balance between art and science. We pride ourselves on being artistic brewers. Quality is of utmost importance to us, so we will never put out anything that we don't stand behind 100 percent. We don’t believe in putting limitations on our beers. We brew for taste, not for style — and not for antiquated brewing “laws.”
Three years and a few award-winning beers later, the two finally realized their dream of opening their brewery. They settled on a location for their brewery and taproom in what was an old pizzeria in Casselberry Florida.
