We're opening a home brewing headquarters in NYC.  We will provide home brewing, classes, supplies and Brew on Premises facilities for New York City.


Brew on Premises (BOP) is like a mini brewery where anyone can be the Brew Master for a day.   We provide all the equipment, ingredients and support.  You provide the vision and the manpower.   It's an insanely fun way to both learn and practice brewing.  The best part is that you get to take 6 cases of hand crafted, custom labeled ale home with you.

Brew on Premises is great for parties, events, large batches, and for those that just don’t have the space at home, or don’t want the mess.


Brewing gear is expensive.  Our $4000.00 will buy one all grain brewing system, and is the minimum that we need to get off of the ground.  The grand total for the project is in excess of $30,000.00, so spread the word.  Every little bit helps.


We are designing a custom 30 gallon electrical brewing system that's based on The Electric Brewery (  With this system, our customers will be able to brew any style of beer imaginable.  In addition to the "all grain" system, we'll install two extract brewing systems, temperature controlled fermentation chambers, bottling stations and everything else we need to get people brewing.
