At Discretion we care deeply for the world we live in and believe our beer should be responsibly-made. That’s why our beer is crafted from ingredients that are carefully sourced to support sustainable farming, and why we harness the power of the sun to brew our beer. Whether you choose an old favorite or one of many seasonals offered throughout the year, you will find goodness in your glass — consistently exquisite, solar-powered, and delicious.

Matt’s unique voice and intricate playing style always gets the audience on their feet and feeling their groove.
