Ordinem Ecentrici Coctores = Order of the Eccentric Boilers
Yes, we know. Ben Neidhart did that on purpose as the name is not grammatically correct Latin. Rather the name & symbols of the brewery are a spoof on the secret societies of yesteryear.
In old brewing literature fermentation was often called boiling as the vigorous bubbling drew comparisons to the boiling of liquids. As advanced as brewing science has become, sometimes we are still just as clueless when it comes to the science behind the actual creation of complex flavors and aromas.
Opened in June 2014, Ben wanted to create an unusual brewery stemming from neither here nor there. We take influence from the great lost brewing traditions of the areas going from Northern Germany across to Belgium combining them with modern brewing techniques.
