Mash & Boil In Stock

Our Favorite New Equipment

Now Only $349.99

We're loving using the Mash & Boil at the shop. It reliably hits and holds mash temps, makes step mashing a breeze, recirculates your wort with a built-in pump, and boils all in the same unit. It's also incredibly portable so you can brew anywhere.

At $399.99, it's the most affordable all-in-one brewing system out there.

Pick up a Mash & Boil with Pump today.

Also available for pre-order without pump for $299.99. Order by Thursday any week, pickup it up Tuesday.

We host a monthly bottle share at the store that open to everyone. Also, we host special events about once a month featuring special guests and fun activities. Events are usually free but require pre-registration.
