At OMB, fresh isn’t just a word, it’s our way of life. That’s why you’ll never see OMB sitting “out” at room temperature; fresh beer should never get warm. That’s why our delivery trucks are refrigerated and set precisely to 38°F. And that’s why we adhere to the oldest beer purity law in the world (the renowned German “Reinheitsgebot”) that says beer should only contain 4 ingredients: malt, hops, yeast, and water. So that’s all we use for OMB – no wacky flavors, cheap ingredients, or added colors, and absolutely, positively no shortcuts. If you want to be the best, you’ve got to brew the best, and you can’t let little details like time and money get in the way. Our goal is to do whatever it takes to make the freshest beer imaginable. You can call us control freaks. You can call us fresh obsessed. You’d be right on both counts. But when you taste our beer, we think you’ll agree that it’s totally worth it.
