Get to Know MoreBeer!
MoreBeer! Is comprised of a group of people who are very passionate (obsessed?) about making beer at home. Since 1995 we have been pushing the message that you can make great beer starting with your very first batch, and with just a little practice you can make World Class beer at home. This is not a “mix the can with water and add sugar” type of homebrewing experience.
For the beginning brewer we expose you to just enough equipment and information to make great beer with batch #1. Everyone is always surprised with how easy it is. We’ve taught thousands and we know the basic requirements to make great beer.
However, MoreBeer! differentiates itself by taking the hobby to levels that no one else does. We are the only “Homebrew” shop that has their own metal manufacturing warehouse where we create our own line of actual in-your-home, small-scale, professional breweries, systems we call BrewSculptures.
While not everyone wants to put a full-on brewery in their house, we are perfectly at ease servicing the twice a year, relaxed brewer as we are taking the obsessed nut all the way into professional brewing, via our pro division MoreBeer! Pro where we sell very large commercial equipment to major breweries.
We have gathered an amazing crew of homebrewers and beer enthusiasts to carry the message of MoreBeer! to the masses.
