Ryan Murphy

Expertise: Homebrewing, English Ales, Experimental Brewing, Commercial Brewing

I was born and raised in Northern IL and now reside in the great city of Chicago. I have been brewing heavily for little over a year and a half focusing on contemporary, historical, and progressive English Ales.

Some of my go-to styles to brew include a variety of Porters, Milds, Bitters, Stouts, and Pale Ales.

I also brew a bunch of one-off experimental beers such a triple decoction RoggenBock and a 100% Rye mash ale.

One of my other main focus areas is in commercial brewing.

I am currently working on a nanobrewery startup that will go live hopefully in the next one to two years. The goal is to bring the flavor and many times sessionable ales of England to the US beer scene.

Ryan Murphy’s brewing journey, deeply rooted in the love for English ales, showcases an experimental spirit. His brewing portfolio, rich with a variety of traditional and experimental beers, reflects his passion and drive to contribute to the US beer scene through his upcoming nanobrewery venture/

“Brewing is about transcending boundaries, whether they are of traditional styles or geographical origins. It’s about bringing the heart of English ales to the US, one innovative brew at a time.”
