True to its name, Revision Brewing isn’t afraid to make hard decisions.

A clear-eyed approach has been part of the brewery’s DNA since year one, when the company scrapped its original plan to set up shop in West Sacramento, California, and instead went 140 miles northeast to open in Sparks, Nevada. Despite that significant initial speed bump, Revision was off to the races once it opened its doors in 2017.

Revision CEO and founding brewmaster Jeremy Warren learned much in the five years he spent opening and growing Knee Deep Brewing in Auburn, California, and he applied what he learned to his new venture. Accolades soon followed. Less than a year after its grand opening, Revision won gold and silver at the 2018 World Beer Cup in two of its most contested categories: American-Style India Pale Ale and Imperial India Pale Ale. With its reputation as a hop-centric powerhouse cemented, the brewery grew production volume by double and triple digits for its first three years, according to data reported to the Brewers Association, ending 2019 just shy of 20,000 barrels.
