Humboldt Beer Works – History


Humboldt County is home to 6 craft breweries.Shopfront
We take our beer seriously on the northern California coast and there is a thriving, well established home brewing and home wine making tradition. But in 2009 there was no homebrew supply store where brewers and wine makers could buy ingredients and equipment locally, a fact that was often lamented at homebrew club meetings. In the winter of 2010 and spring of 2011 two home brewers, Josh Reed and Jamie Ashdon began formulating a plan to do something about it. In December of 2011 they opened Humboldt Beer Works in a small (less than 300sq ft) storefront near downtown Eureka. Business was brisk and almost immediately it became clear that a bigger space was needed. In September of 2012, Humboldt Beer Works moved into a 1000 square foot warehouse space in order to serve customers better.  Less than a year later, they expanded in the space next to them facing B St. and doubled their footprint.  In October 2015, they acquired Humboldt Beer Tours and began offering brewery tours in Humboldt County.
