About Us

The Homebrew Centre was established in the 1980s, but our involvement began in 1987 when avid home brewer, Tony Louis decided having taken early retirement, to turn his hobby into his livelihood. Tony owned and ran the shop for over 20 years until he sadly passed away in 2012. The shop in Keynsham, Bristol is still owned by the family and continues to serve home brewers all over the UK. 

 The Homebrew Centre is run by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable team of local home brewers and cider makers who are committed to offering you the best products with the best advice.

Martin, Keith and Robert know the common pitfalls when you’re starting out, and tricks for when you get a little more advanced, because they’ve all experienced it themselves. We know what you’re looking for as a home brewer, because we all brew ourselves. Martin, the shop manager, is also a commercial cider-maker.

So whether a novice or aficionado, you’ll find what you’re looking for either online, or in our store.

Thanks for stopping by, and happy brewing!
