Not Cheaper, Just Better. Founded in Milwaukee, WI, this brand is built on the history of both beer and manufacturing. Spike brings the craftsmanship and business back home - designing, engineering, sourcing, fabricating, and welding all right here in the USA. Spike supports the national economy from start to finish. Sanitary TIG welding, dual stage stepped false-bottoms, actual 1.2mm steel thickness, and push-to-connect fittings make Spike Brewing's equipment the best on the market!
