Jim’s Homebrew Supply, opened in 1955 by Jim Dauber, pictured with his wife. They had the business for approximately 10 years, upon which they sold the business to Howard & Louise Engle who ran the store for 17 years from 1965 – 1982. Tom Ballinger ran the store for 8 years from 1982 – 1990. Robert Ketcham (current owner) has run the store from 1990 until now, 24 years.
As you can see, this store as been in continuous operation since 1955: owned and run by home brewers. This has been the reason for the success of this store and that we have remained at the same location for 60 year. While there have and there will be other home brew shops, we have the knowledge and history of helping customer be successful in a hobby that has spanned three generations. We don’t just sell merchandise; we support our customers with up-to-date information about the hobby.
Can you say that about where you buy home-brew supplies?
