About Noble Stein Brewing
Noble Stein Brewing Company is a craft brewery in Indiana, PA. The brewery is owned and operated by Zack Morrow and Ben Harley. It all started in a garage. We had both homebrewed before. Then, one day we brought all of our ideas and recipes together. We started out using homebrew kits in a simple five-gallon kettle, but our excitement and want for more grew rapidly. So, we began using a mini brewing system featuring a 20-gallon hot liquor tank, mash/lauter tun, and boil kettle. With a strategically engineered, gravity-fed brewing system, we began experimenting with multiple varieties of hops, malts, yeasts, etc. until our beer recipes were perfect. It was inevitable that the idea of a brewery would cross our minds one day and, when it did, it felt like a noble idea to pursue. With several years of collective brewing experience, we decided to start brewing with the intent of bringing Indiana the beer they deserve.
The name Noble Stein originated with a discussion of the values and ideals that we possess and believe are essential to producing quality products. Noble concisely indicates a strong sense of integrity among our team. The beers that we produce maintain this same trait, with no compromises in the production process. Noble also reflects a certain level of reverence and appreciationan exceptional quality, if you will. This level of appreciation continues to flourish in the craft beer community, and we aim to sow additional seeds to support this movement. Coincidentally, Noble also refers to a family of wild European hops, tying beer in nicely with our name.
