Our Beer

International Award Winning Beer.

Tepache Tamarindo Indigenous Beer  wins International Gold Medal in  2017 Denver International Beer Competition  


We can think of nothing better than creating original and seasonal craft beers for people who love trying new things.  My Basic Style is Borderland Avant-garde, infusing the flavors of the region, creating beautiful styles of Indigenous beer.  We are not defined by one style or niche and do not always adhere to traditional brewing styles or practices.   The Hallmark of Sun Brewing is creativity and Imagination for our original brews.  

Our Story

We started our journey back in the garage of my house. Our first batch of beer was nothing great.  Through a lot of hard work and passion we continuously make process improvements to create original brews from our environment for a flavorful regional beer.  There is a lot of love that goes into brewing the way Sun Brewing creates beer; everything from our cool ships for my Spontaneous Ale Projects or my Ice Lagers to my Borderland Avant-garde beers.  


For me, there is nothing more intimate than crafting something home made from someone's hands to another's. 


David A Slocum's Background.

 

My father is a retired military officer, which allowed me to travel a lot moving every two years or less growing up.  This was a great life’s experience because I was able to see many different cultures and meet lifelong friends from different places and to see the different cuisines and drinks.  

I followed in my father’s footsteps and I’m a former Marine who joined right after 911. Oorah Marines!  I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Middle Tennessee State University and I’m currently a Software Engineer.  

If I was ever from a place then it would be El Paso, all things considering... even though I've lived in a lot of places in my life and every place I've lived has a special place in my heart, I'm an El Pasoan,  I went to Morehead Middle School, Coronado HS, UTEP and I've lived here for almost a decade since I got out of the Marines. I've made El Paso my home.   

I started Sun Brewing while having a day job but I’m going to start a business doing something that I love !  I'm just a home brewer brewing Good Beer and cooking my comfort food. .


Manifesto for Sun Brewing

 

We are brewing Beer, cooking Food and inspire others do it.  Brewing is all the subjects… Art, Science, and History.  Brewing & Cooking like Art, is subjective through its creature.

   

Through this art work we have come to value:


  • The Beer Brewing Process over the end result
  • Creativity and Originality over standardization
  • Revolutionaries over the establishment and status quo 
  • Sincere Customer Service over routine customer service


While any business could function with basic items on the Right and there is value with the items on the right, we strive with the values on the Left more. 


We follow these 10 Commandments:


Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through our Borderland Avant-garde style, culture and genuineness.


Welcome all people, come as you are.


Strive to deliver beer innovatively and to more customers... but always keep Sun Brewing's culture.


Build more relationships with all people of all backgrounds... not just “craft beer establishments”.


The best method of relationship building is to have face-to-face conversation.


Geniune relationships are the primary measure of progress.


Continuously strive to press the limits and to experiment.


The art of Simplicity is essential, stick to our core values.


The best ideas and designs emerge from Collaborations.


Routinely, have a Beer with coworkers and build a Sun Brewing family.
