Who Are You?

Good question.  Short Throw Brewing is the culmination of talents from owner and head brewer, Brandon Tolbert.  Brandon gained notoriety during his time as head brewer at The Answer Brewpub.  In 2015, the Answer was awarded Best New Brewery for the state of Virginia with Tolbert at the helm.  He parted ways in 2018, and has since worked at Final Gravity Brewing and Ardent Craft Ales, while trying to establish his own brand.  He completed that goal in late 2019, partnering with the Twelve Percent Beer Project, to launch Short Throw Brewing.  And here we are.  In Jan 2021, RateBeer announced that Short Throw was named 8th Best New Brewery in the world, 2nd Best New Brewery in the United States, and once again for Tolbert, the Best New Brewery in the state of Virginia.

Who does your label art?

Excellent question.  Our label art is masterfully executed by Portland, ME native, Ryan Adams.  He is a professional painter and muralist by trade.  "He began emulating the work from his comic books as a child, but when he received his first copy of 'Subway Art', at age 10, his life became consumed by bright colors and bending letter forms."  Indeed.  You can, and we encourage you to, follow him on Instagram: @ryanwritesonthings or visit his website:
