Jamie Ashdon, Humboldt Beer Works

Is everyone brewing beer but me?  Seems like it — after interviewing Jamie Ashdon I have heard from several people in varying stages of brewing…meanwhile I was all impressed with myself because I had cured and smoked my own bacon and ham hocks.  Obviously I need to up the bar!

Part 2 of Jamie Ashdon’s Interview


Humboldt Beer Works was established in 2011.  Owners Jamie Ashdon and Josh Reed first met and began talking about starting their own homebrew supply store in 2010 during homebrew club meetings.  It quickly became clear that they both shared similar visions in a homebrew store.  Several meetings, conversations and beers later, they eventually formalized their partnership and got to work.

Their initial phase of HBW is the homebrew supply shop.  Future phases will include a specialty bottle shop and tap room.  They want to be your one stop shop for all things beer!  Pick up your brewing ingredients, some inspiration to take home, and have a draft in the tap room or while you shop.  It will be your modern day hardware store hangout!

Currently, their operations are located at 511 6th Street, Eureka, California.
