We’re three friends with one shared passion for creating exceptional beer, each bringing a different level of expertise and background to this wild but exciting endeavor.

We aim to provide the best product possible while creating a positive impact in our community and respecting every aspect of the beer industry and our fellow brewers.

The name Cushwa is a local reference to our Cushwa Basin landmark located on the C&O Canal. The canal features 184.5 mile long towpath now popular with locals tourists and who enjoy the recreational activities it has to offer.
