GoNOLA Find: Brewstock Homebrewing Supplies

Brewing beer is nothing new to the city of New Orleans. In fact, it was once the brewing capital of the South. Craft beers and homebrews, however, have become more popular in recent years.

If you’re a beer lover, the only thing better than drinking it is making it. This week’s GoNOLA Find is Brewstock Homebrewing Supplies, which can help you do just that. Are you a seasoned home brewer, just starting out or simply curious about the hobby? This is one of the best shops in New Orleans for all of your brewing needs.

An old-fashioned corner store located in Central City, Brewstock opened back in 2009 by brewmaster Aaron Hyde, who later sold it to Kyle DuPont.

One of the many great things about Brewstock is that they can personalize brew kits based on any commercial beer on the market. That means that whether you have a taste for Abita Amber or Sierre Nevada, they can help you put together the ingredients and equipment needed to make an similar batch of your favorite brew right at home.

Brewstock provides a full line of beer, wine, coffee, soda and cheese making products. Although the storefront may be small, the diverse inventory has everything you need to get brewing.
