About Parkside Brewing
Parkside Brewing Company was established in the Fall of 2015 by Paul Kay, Shaun Ryan, Andy Jameson, and Wade Lancaster. Our goal is to bring high quality craft beer to Burlington, Iowa and the surrounding communities. Paul and Shaun, whom each are award-winning home brewers, developed a passion for creating unique and flavorful brews that they have long-shared with their family and friends. They met as members of the local home brewers club known as the Burlington M.O.B (Makers of Beer), and formed a friendship around their interest in brewing. Andy and Wade are longtime friends of Paul, and each share a fondness for craft beer and the craft beer industry. Paul introduced Shaun to Andy and Wade, and as they say, “the rest is history”.
A genuine passion for high quality beer and the opportunity to fulfill a need for fresh, high quality, locally brewed beer in the Burlington-area market has set the four of us on a path to produce, market, and serve the highest quality craft beer in the region. Paul and Shawn will oversee operations at Parkside Brewing Company. Andy will manage finances, and Wade will direct marketing and sales activities for the company. We each bring different skill sets that will help set Parkside Brewing Company apart from other breweries and brew pubs.
In addition to the highest quality craft beer, Parkside Brewing Company plans to offer artisan pizza, tapas, and appetizers in our brew pub. Using spent grains from the beer manufacturing process, we plan to offer a unique food experience not readily found in the Burlington area today.
