I was a “stay at home dad” with our youngest daughter. When it was time for her to pursue her college career, it was also time for me to pursue my passion…BEER! Jackie and I determined we could not afford a brewery so we decided a home brew supply store was the next best thing. When I started researching the topic Home Brew Supply Store I was quite surprised to find there were no books, web sites, seminars or even a pamphlet on the subject. So I had to start from scratch in order to assemble the store. Jackie and I visited other home brew supply stores and talked with owners and managers. I called every wholesale supplier of home brewing ingredients in the country. I also talked with people from appropriate government agencies, along with many other fact-finding missions.
Once most of the initial legwork was done, the information gathered lead us to what became BrewStory LLC. With an awful lot of help from family and friends we built, bought and assembled the only store in South West Florida devoted exclusively to the passion of home beer brewing.
