About Monkey Wrench Brewing
Monkey Wrench Brewing is a dream becoming reality! Our craft brewery, beer garden and taproom will be opening soon. We are bringing our passion and vision to the world...live from Suwanee, GA.
If you're like us, you do things your way– and that means wrenching it up a notch! Our team of hop heads (hailing from the South) has spent many years working hard and making sacrifices to bring MWB to life. The new craft brewery is under construction and will soon become your second home!
Monkey Wrench Brewing is located in the vibrant town of Suwanee, GA and just five minutes south of the amazing Suwanee Town Center. Later this year, you will be able to walk, bike, and drive over to experience our taproom and beer garden. You'll even be able to host your own event at the brewery! We look forward to throwing a Wrench in the mix with our business and community.
Since 2011, we have soaked in the craft beer industry, shared our story with thousands, met cool craft beer fans like yourself, all while establishing a brand that stands for something. MWB has been featured in articles, magazines, websites, and has promoted at many beer festivals since 2013. We've done our homework (plus extra credit)!
These craft beers are some examples of the treats we have up our sleeves for you, with plenty of delicious surprises along the way! Our goal is to share amazing beer in a fun gathering place for the community to rock together. There is going to be a lot of good times ahead in the taproom and beer garden!
We are passionate about pushing the envelope to make many new memories for years to come. Stay tuned in for the details on our progress as we go from backyard to the big leagues!

Creative Dude & Co-owner
"Being lifelong fans of beer also means advocating for good times with good people. That's what it's really about: community. That's why we keep dreaming and why we keep building. It's in our blood to throw a Wrench in the mix. Champions."
A special shout out goes to the family and friends that have pitched in along the way. Thanks for your support– it takes a village to raise a brewery!
Story Behind the Name
As Wayne recalls it: "On a sunny afternoon in Snellville [GA] I was hanging out with a few buddies in my tool room and bar in my basement. We were having a good ole time tasting my latest creation: a freshly home-brewed IPA! They all knew about my plans for a brewing company...also that I was having a helluva time selecting the right name for it! I had been searching for weeks on end by now.
So while pints were being emptied and refilled, we joked and brainstormed about branding, life and such. We actually came up with some decent names, along with some really really bad ones. There were a few sessions like this again over the next weeks but still nothing seemed to click for me yet. Damn frustrating!
As ideas came and went, I began to doubt my instincts on the name game. In a spontaneous moment of clarity– it suddenly hit me! Joe and I realized that my answer had been hanging on the pegboard right there in front of me all along: the trusty monkey wrench!
It made so much sense; I have been known as a self-learner and to throw a wrench in the mix, especially with my beer recipes. Plus, it felt like a true homage to the tools that helped me become a good brewer. We still love to "wrench it up a notch" with our ideas and experiments because that's what makes us...us. So, there ya go and now here we are!"
