Raising startup funds for Boston Homebrew Supply.

Help us open Boston Homebrew Supply!

Josh loves beer. Josh loves talking about beer. Josh loves making beer as a professional and home brewer. Josh loves helping other people make beer. Josh and his wife Sarah want to open Boston Homebrew Supply in their community to help their friends and neighbors make great beer. Help turn this dream into a reality.

Craft beer and homebrewing are more popular than ever. There are more than 1,000,000 (ONE MILLION!) homebrewers in the United States. Local homebrew shops are an important resource for homebrewers. They provide ingredients, support from a knowledgable staff and a local community with which to share ideas and... beer!

Why Jamaica Plain (JP), Massachusetts needs a homebrew shop

  • JP, where we live, and surrounding communities currently lack a convenient homebrew shop
  • JP is a diverse and eclectic neighborhood, that values community and embraces local food, products and businesses
  • JP and surrounding communities have an expanding population of homebrewers

What will be special about Boston Homebrew Supply

  • Customers will enjoy a clean, efficient and well-stocked shop with a variety of fresh ingredients, essential equipment, a knowledgeable staff and a friendly environment
  • Josh is a professional brewer, lifetime homebrewer and a former high school teacher. This unique combination of qualifications makes him a perfect person to provide service to the local homebrewing community
  • Boston Homebrew Supply will offer an array of custom designed recipe kits
  • For those looking for more in depth learning, Boston Homebrew Supply will offer various level homebrew classes and workshops on special topcs as requested

Why we are asking you for help

We are starting from zero, but have a real dream of creating a great small business in our awesome community. We need money to rent and furnish retail space and stock our shop with fresh ingredients and quality equipment. In exchange for being a crucial part of our awesome shop, we'll send you some Boston Homebrew Supply gear, our custom designed homebrew recipe kits and even some classes!

Help us get the word out

In addition to donations, we need help increasing the awareness of Boston Homebrew Supply. Please tell your friends about us on Facebook, in person, on the phone, text messages or by carrier pigeon.
