Welcome to the MEPS program.  MEPS is Knee Deep’s Monthly Experimental Pilot Series program.  Every month Knee Deep will be brewing a small, 15 bbl. brew of something crazy, different, something one of our fans contributed, or simply anything the brewmaster wants to brew.  If one of our fans contributes a beer idea/recipe we will invite that person to come to the brewery and brew the beer with us at the Lincoln, CA brewhouse. The contributor will also be intitled to take some of the finished beer home.

Distribution will only be in 1/6 bbl. & 1/2 bbl. kegs to select retail locations in Nevada and California.  If you’re a retailer (bar, tavern, pub or resturant) please contact us if you would like to particapate in the MEPS program.

If you have an idea for an amazing beer or have any questions about where our MEPS beers are being poured, please contact us at:
