Founded in 2011 here at 2260 Moon Station Court #210 Kennesaw, GA. We have seen amazing growth over the past 5 years. After getting our final approvals from the state of Georgia, we brewed our first beer on April 1 2012. Operating as a self financed Nano Brewery, (meaning we are producing under 200 Barrels of beer a year) we have spent our time learning the beer business. We’ve built some of the strongest brands of beer in the state! We’ve received a ton of social media and old school media coverage, and we’ve built an ‘Army” of fans. Now we are now on the verge of the next step.
Welcome to 2014. We are on the verge of an expansion. With the blueprints in hand and the knowledge that we can make beer that people like, we are going from NANO brewing to MICRO brewing. Plans are now in place for us to remodel our base to handle the size of the new system and fermenters that are on order.
What does the expansion mean to us, and to you? Well, to us, it’s a chance to really start seeing some of the blood, sweat, and tears of the last year finally begin to pay off. We have a good/bad problem; we can’t make enough beer! Going from a 2 bbl kettle to a 20 bbl kettle will be enough for us to put 10 times the number of kegs out in the market. To you, that means more BHB availability!
Keeping with our mantra “TO BE MINIMAL, WOULD BE CRIMINAL!”, we plan to keep the same level of “OOMPH” in our beers. The smaller system allowed us to monitor and control EVERY ounce of our beers. Going to 20 BBL (which may seem HUGE) will allow us to keep our same standards of brewing, and maintain the “magic” of what we were able to produce here in the start-up. In fact, it will make it a hell of a lot easier to make a hell of a lot more beer!
We’re trying to update the website regularly, so please check ‘The Latest’ section, for our most up to the date information.
We’ve had requests for people to meet and trade beers at BHB open houses. Officially, (read: “Legally”) Non BHB brewery beers cannot be opened and/or consumed on the property of a brewery during a tasting /tour. If you want to trade non opened beer bottles with others at the tasting, that is fine. Just don’t drink them.
If you decide to open and drink one, you’ll be asked to pour it out. That would be heartbreaking to all involved including us. PLUS… No BHB bottles can be traded. Due to law, no sales can be done on brewery property. Hopefully the GA laws will be a little looser, but until that happens, that’s our policy on outside beer consumption.
