Why brew at Patriot Homebrew Supply?
There are many reasons people like to brew at our facility, ranging from
- personal instruction (required to be present)
- lack of space at home
- use of our professional grade equipment
- a day to hang out with friends, group events and parties
What is Brew on Premises?
With our Brew on Premise (B.O.P.) system, you’re the brewer! B.O.P. is when you come into our store to brew your beer’s wort using Patriot Homebrew Supply’s equipment plus personal instruction (if requested, not mandatory for experienced brewers), and the water. Ingredients and fermenting supplies are additional.
Even better is there is all of the fun without the mess; we do all of the clean up, assist with the prep work, and sanitation!
What is the cost?
The kitchen is rented out for $25 an hour. You choose to brew a 5, 10, 15 or 20 gallon batch of wort of your own recipe or we will help you create a recipe.
You purchase the ingredients from us. Cost will vary depending on style of beer and brew size. You can bring in your own or purchase from us your fermenting supplies (bucket, lid and airlock).
We have two systems that can be used based on the batch size. The Blichmann is used when we brew 5 or 10 gallon batches (extract or all grain using a brew in a bag process). The Ruby Street will be used for 15 or 20 gallons.
Each brewing session takes from 3 to 6 hours depending on your recipe.
During the brewing session you’ll work as the master brewer to blend malt, hops, yeast and water in perfect harmony to create beer. One of our experts will be on hand to help as little or as much as you need.
After you’ve completed the brewing process you’ll cool your wort down quickly using our plate chiller and then add your yeast. You will then take your wort home to ferment and bottle.
Scheduling Your Brew Day

It is recommended that you try to book your appointment a minimum of two weeks ahead of time, however the earlier the better. Each brewing session will require a minimum of 2.5 hours space rental.
We ask for your recipe or beer style (Patriot Homebrew Supply offers recipe building at no additional cost) at the time of reservation or two weeks prior to brew day to ensure ingredients are in stock.
Arrive at least 15 minutes in advance of your appointment. Reservations that are more than 30 minutes late without prior notice may be canceled.
Up to 6 people are invited to join you (space in the kitchen is limited) and are included in the price.
