Special Bier crafted by Special People

A Craft Brewery that provides training and meaningful
employment for adults with Special Needs.


We’re more than a craft brewery.

Founded by 3 families with deep connections to the Special Needs community we exist to improve the lives of people with Special Needs. We know that with support and inclusion any individual with Special Needs can excel at what they do.

Our Brewery will provide the support needed to ensure that the working for Spectrum Bier will improve the skills, independence, fulfilment of all our employees. We will also have a lot of fun along the way! 


Our Story

Spectrum is more than a brewery; it’s a mission dedicated to helping as many people as we can find meaningful lifelong employment. We know from personal experience that given extra care, time, and understanding people with Special Needs can become people with Special Talents. 
Success for us will be the day when an employee leaves the Spectrum family to get another job, fully confident that they can succeed as an independent adult. 
At Spectrum, we see and nurture the unique strengths of each employee, this is reflected in our beer which is made with love and superhuman levels of attention to detail and precision.
