Generations of scientists who tirelessly sought to understand the complex nature of taste, smell, and microbiology. With this inspiration in mind, we work tirelessly to pursue our passion of merging traditional and new techniques and flavor profiles to craft incredible beer, liquor, coffee and food.

Ology Brewing Co. was created out of, well… genetics. Yeah, that doesn’t sound very romantic, but the reality is true. Head Brewer and Founder of Ology, Nick Walker, was raised in a family of researchers and scientists who found their home in Tallahassee, FL at Florida State University in the 1950’s.

And if you didn’t think science was cool already, Nick’s father, Jim Walker, also studied olfaction — the study of smell. His research looked into how smell affects us psychologically.

Then, enter Nick Walker, who graduated with a B.S. in biology and worked as a nurse at a local hospital. He’s loved beer since before he could walk, and uses his incessant thirst for knowledge to study beer history and travel to learn from the most notable craft brewers.

We pursue what's different, undiscovered and unequaled.

You could say that Ology’s history really started with Nick’s grandfather, Lloyd Beidler, a prominent researcher at Florida State University’s psychobiology department, who forged discoveries into the science of how we experience taste. During his years, Beidler conducted experiments and made incredible discoveries, including the effects of Miracle Fruit, which, if ingested before eating something sour, would make the flavor in your mouth taste sweet.

In preparation for our 5th Annual Oktoberfest this weekend, we have two German Lagers dropping today! We`ve been letting these two sit for a while cold conditioning (lagering) for about two months for maximum enjoyment.

Festbier is THE Lager of Oktoberfest. Think large glass steins laden with this extremely drinkable liquid. This is not your typical Light American Lager, but also not the heavy and sweet Marzen. Festbier is 6%, has a great mouthfeel with notes of honey and fresh baked bread, and perfectly clean.

Helles Munich Lager sits at a light 4.75% and brings a slight malt sweetness to a balanced finish - soft bready notes with some delicate spice. Light and delicate while still holding on to notion that good German lagers have a depth that comes from good ingredients and processes.

There’s a Hazy aroma wafting into the taprooms. New Hazy dropping this Friday at all taprooms. A great companion to all the Festbier we’ll be enjoying during Oktoberfest at @ology_powermill this weekend!

Wafting Whiffs - 8% Hazy Double IPA
Loaded with Mosaic, Sabro, and El Dorado Hops. As soon as you crack open a can, you’ll be hit with a punch of tropical aroma. Pineapple, coconut, passionfruit, red berry, and apricot, all the favorite notes.

A massive amount of flaked oats and wheat meld with 2 row to create a soft base, made to highlight a stellar hop lineup. We started with two crowd favorites, Citra and Strata. Then we utilized a new to us hop blend from Hop Alliance and Pikimai Hops, NewZilla. Expect a pronounced nose full of passionfruit, strawberry, and stone fruit!

Update from our Head Distiller @slowdrams on two of our bourbon barrels that we’re really excited about!

The best things in life take time, and we’re patiently waiting for these 2 bourbon barrels to finish their aging. Bourbon has gone into an Apple Brandy Barrel and a Cherry Brandy Barrel. Once they have aged to perfection, we’ll be having a very special 2 bottle release.

Stay tuned for updates and release date, we can’t wait to taste the results!
