Young Henrys

We make beer, cider and gin the community is proud to call its own. Like most breweries, you’ll smell it before you see it: Malt, yeast, hops. Spend the afternoon and you’ll get the sense that we’re more than just the sum of those parts. Our brewery walls double as gallery space to local artists, while musicians, artists and chefs often collaborate on our brews. Most importantly though, we are open every day for everyone and their dog to stop by for a beer.
