Hop Rhizomes Now here.

We are here with limited service. We will let one customer in at the door so you will need to knock. Our hours will run from 10-2 possibly 4 pm Saturday 4 Apr 2020.

Our hop rhizomes have arrived.  These beautiful plants are very prolific in  hop production. Get them now while we still have them. They do an excellent job in hiding a fence or covering a trellis. Imagine drinking a hoppy IPA and smelling  the fragrant aroma of your own Hops growing in your backyard. Happy Brewing!

Happy Holidays

We’d like  to announce a special event occurring here at Jim’s Home Brew. As such, we will be closing early on Wednesday.
Goose Island Brewery will hold a special  deconstruction class on the their famous “Bourbon County Stout”.   Head brewer Austin Niestrom and lab technician Matt Cinatl will walk us through a sensory experience that is part of the brewing process. Additionally, there will be liquid samples available for tasting.

Following the class,  a documentary will be shown at  the Magic Lantern Theater over the history of the beers development.

Hope to see you here!
