Humboldt Beer Works – History

Humboldt County is home to 7 craft micro- and nano-breweries, as well as several cideries, wineries, distilleries and even a meadery and kombucha brewery!  We take our fermented beverages seriously on California’s North Coast and there is a thriving, well established home brewing, wine and cider 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 late 2010, two home brewers, Josh Reed and Jamie Ashdon began formulating a plan to do something about it.

Josh and Jaime opened Humboldt Beer Works in a small (less than 300 sq. ft.) storefront near downtown Eureka in late 2011.  Business was brisk and almost immediately it became clear that a bigger space was needed.  In September 2012, Humboldt Beer Works moved into a 1000+ sq. ft. warehouse space in order to serve customers better. Less than a year later, they expanded in the space next to them facing B St., doubling their footprint to over 2000 sq. ft.

May 2018 brought a big change to Humboldt Beer Works.  In an effort to continue growing the business, HBW employee and Store Manager Kenneth Berry purchased the shop from Josh and Jaime.  Kenneth has pledged to build on their vision by continuing to provide the North Coast with quality homebrewing ingredients and equipment.  From grain to glass, we’ve got what you need!
