Our Story

We're Merlin U Ward and Mimi Ortega and Wartega is our brainchild. We're a husband and wife team brewing beers with ancient ale ingredients. Ales were once brewed with all sorts of ingredients from the regions around the brewers that made them. The basis for Wartega beers is combining the culinary, historical and cultural ingredients for beers with uniquely bold flavor!

We hold Wartega beers to two key rules: The beer must be balanced, and the beer must be interesting. Thus, our beers are brewed with fruit, spices and herbs, while still respecting beer making fundamentals–balance and drinkability.


NEWS:

Wartega is currently homeless. Our combined tasting room with Industry City Distillery is closed. We are continuing to experiment and build new recipes, but are not currently distributing in NYC. We’re taking this year to concentrate on our family and new baby girl!

Keep an eye out for new releases, and join our mailing list to be the first to get word! We appreciate your support over the last few years and we hope to pick up production again soon!
