Homer Brewing Company began by the inspiration of the renaissance of beer throughout the U.S. and the will to carve out a livelihood in Homer. Brought together through the original homebrew cooperative, the Q & Q Guild, Steve McCasland, Lasse Holmes & Karen Berger combined their talents & love of beer to create Homer Brewing Company. Open September 21, 1996 as Homer's first commercial brewery, originally housed in a space of 23'x29', brewing with a recycled, re-fabricated 3-beer-barrell system, considered "micro" in the industry, HBC grew to produce over 1000 bbls. a year with this equipment.
In February of 2001, adversity struck when the lease on the building was not renewed and the brewery faced going out of business. Thanks to the cooperation and encouragement of our local bank & astounding local support, we persevered and purchased the permanent home for the brewery, re-opening in August of 2001 at the current location on Lake Shore Drive. In 2005 we installed a refurbished 7-barrel brewing system that has increased efficiency in the brew house.
