Familyhood Reunion Anniversary!

What do you think when you think of Home?

We think of you.

WE WILL BE HAVING A VIRTUAL B-DAY THIS YEAR. STAY TUNED FOR NEW DETAILS TO FOLLOW.


Home Brewing Company is celebrating it’s 5th anniversary with brews and merch!
The Homebrewer: Supplies & Resource celebrates it’s 8th and we’re giving you deals on Deals on DEALS!!

Now we like to think of ourselves as classy folk,
so we’ve decided to base a theme off of traditional anniversary gifts and even extended to the United Kingdom for some inspiration.

5th Anniversary gift is Salt: As enthusiasts of those malty European brews, this is inspired by UK tradition.
Salt signifies value and essential to life (Just like our love of beer and camaraderie with you all)

8th Anniversary gift is Wood: Symbolizing a durable, long-lasting and solid relationship.
(Which we feel like we have with you all <3)

So what does our anniversary look like you might ask?


Friday: PAR-TAY time! All day we will be releasing some of our favorite brews that bring us joy. Jacob is also brewing away to bring you some of the best Home Brewing Company has to offer 😉

Introducing our newest installment to Home Brewing Company:

Nomadic Phases: Specialty Bottle Series

We often pull aside small portions of our larger batches to experiment with various other aspects of the brewing process and myriad ingredients. In the past we have released these as simple blank bottles, with a simple tag that only lists the name of the beer and it’s abv. These are some of our favorite beers, and we love opening them for special occasions. It’s time that we gave these beers the attention that they deserve, so we are rolling out a new bottle series dubbed Nomadic Phases. This series of beers will feature various styles and various ingredient/process experiments. The binding factor will be that they are all special to us, and fantastically interesting and delicious.

  • Nomadic Phases with Nectarines – 6.4%
    Saison with French Oak, Nectarines, Peaches & Brett Lambicus
    This bottle features a  portion of our saison fermented with nectarines, peaches, french oak, and wild yeast that we brewed in collaboration with Nomad Donuts. We then bottle conditioned that beer with Brettanomyces Lambicus. The result is a slightly drier saison, with accented notes of stone fruit and white pepper. The first beer – and namesake – for our Nomadic Phases Bottle Series.

Saturday: Getting down to the nitty gritty and do some good ole’ fashion learning, with copious amounts of beer of course.

Can Release Party: @theSherbertPervert IPA

The Sherbert Pervert IPA:

This beer is a Sherbert IPA. We don’t really know if that exists… but well… it does.

Lactose, oats, and a blend of our favorite European base malts provide a hint of bread, toast, & pastries, and a rich and full bodied mouthfeel.

A perverted amount of citrusy and fruity hops, but with low bitterness keep this beer drinkable and refreshing.

We’ve also created some special glassware for the occasion.

More details to come… but we’ll see you there!

Dry-Hop Experiment

Jeff from Mash Heads, a homebrew club in San Diego proposed an experiment in which we dry hopped bottles of beer with different varieties.

We had a keg of Mission Brewing light lager to work with, an ideal base for our experiment. We filled 15 22 oz bottles using a ratio of 1/2 oz per gallon, many higher gravity IPAs use 1 oz per gallon.

Jamie and Tricia from Mash Heads were kind enough to host the tasting at their house. There were about 12 Mash Heads present.

For info about the hops we used, and some tasting notes check out Jamies blog at The Cask & Barrel.

Brewery Visit: Barrel House Brewing Co.

Molly and I had a chance to take a nice drive up to Paso Robles (pronounced row-bowls for some). We spent three days visiting several wineries (I’ll leave the wine reviews to molly’s Bar We There Yet??). We had a chance to visit the wonderful Firestone Walker, where we enjoyed a private tour, and several tastings. Among our usual favorites from this brewery, we were happy to try the Velvet Merkin (Barrel Aged Velvet Merlin – coming in bottles soon).

While searching for other breweries to visit, we came across news for the grand opening of Barrel House Brewing Company, just a mile or so south of Firestone Walker. We were excited to see another large brewery open in the area, but bummed that we would be heading back home just one day before their February 23 Grand Opening. We sent them an email, asking if we could stop by for an early morning visit on Friday, and they graciously obliged.

Barrel House Brewing Co.

Chris took us around the grounds including a beautiful garden, waterfall, and stage for live music. We sampled their Kolsch and their IPA. both were clean and true to style. They talked about getting used to brewing on a much larger system, and the adjustments they intend to make on their tried and true recipes.

Overal, we had a great time meeting the Barrel House Brewing Co. crew, and are looking forward to checking back in with them on our next visit to the area. They are a genuine bunch and are certainly passionate about their craft. We wish them the best of success. Be sure to visit if your passing through.
