by Ryan Gerstel:

Sole Artisan Ales has been producing outstanding, high quality beer since its conception in 2015.

The Pittstown, PA microbrewery was founded by Head Brewer, Joe Percoco. Percoco's passion for quality beer took him from his farm in the Appalachian Mountains, to historic breweries across the pond in Europe to learn both new and traditional brewing techniques from adept Brew Masters.

Equipped with newfound brewing knowledge, Percoco returned to the states and created Sole Artisan Ales.
