The ambitions of the Gigantic Brewing Company are simple, or as Ben Love and Van Havig put it: making “the best damn IPA” in Portland. This goal is complemented with the brewing of experimental seasonal beers, that are often one-off brews. Gigantic doesn’t follow formulas of known beer styles, but relies on the intuition and talent of its brewers.
Quantity is not important. The eccentric Love and Havig want to focus on making exceptional beers, not huge volumes.
Love and Havig’s group of friends includes some successful artists, which explains the striking artwork of the brewery.
