Sun Brew History

  • Founded February 2014 by David A Slocum
  • Will be the first Authentic Craft Brewery in El Paso County with my Borderland Avant Garde Style of Brewing.  In the 1800's with The Harry Mitchel Brewery would be the first  Brewery in El Paso.  Jaxon's was the first to make craft beer in El Paso.  What I mean by authentic is that all my recipes are original crafted for a Borderland flavor not commoditized.  No extract brewing or contract brewing... 100 percent all grain brewing.   Sun Brewing Co is a brewery with the intent to distribute.
