SOME BREW FOR MEDALS, WE BREW FOR THE ART OF BREWING.
That’s because 20 years ago, while on a camping trip to the mysterious mountains of Isle Royale, our brewer stumbled upon a 1000-year-old sacred North American Ninja Scroll (NANS). Within the scrolls chard remains lay instructions to the secret Ninja ways including Ninjaken sword, time travel and the mythological healing black lotus tonic. Together with the essence of their martial arts, the scroll also contained incredible brewery notes documenting the tasty libations once brewed by the ninjas. After many years of studying and deciphering the sacred scrolls, our brewer took away one golden rule of the Ninja: While engaged in any endeavor, in order to be a master who creates happiness and health, one must truly be in present in any activity they pursue (ZEN). Thus the only true reward of any task is the reward of doing the task for the sake of doing it. Well, that and seeing thousands and thousands of people smile in delight after drinking a brew that took all your love and attention to produce. That’s pretty rewarding

THINK GLOBAL, DRINK LOCAL
Mark Harper, Michael Allan and his wife Jodi Allan (Mark’s sister) founded Black Lotus Brewing Company in 2006. Their family business formed when Mark (a school psychologist and musician) and Mike (a financial planner and banker) both longed for more creative and spiritual control over their careers. Disheartened by massive corporate entities serving up inferior products, Mark and Mike, together with Jodi (a high school educator) created the philosophy: “Think Global, Drink Local. “
Under this philosophy Black Lotus is committed to providing quality-handcrafted products to each and every one of its customers. Furthermore, these products are to be served to the customer with timeliness, friendliness and individualized care. In addition, Black Lotus is committed to the notion that this care should be extended to the community at large and the world when possible. This is accomplished by supporting charitable contributions and activities that bring the world more creation, more compassion, more art, more tastefulness, and more peace.
