About Us

Who we are...
Since our founding in 1991, the Brewmeister has been supplying home wine makers and home brewers with equipment, supplies, and recipes. We are your Sacramento-based home brewing supplies resource from beginning brewer kits to advanced equipment.

For those searching for brewing supplies in Sacramento and beyond, we provide grains from around the world, liquid and dry malt extracts, adjuncts, and hops. We are proud to provide the largest and freshest assortment of brewer's yeast, including products from Imperial, White Labs, Lallemand, and Fementis.

We are recognized for our dynamic variety of home brewing recipes that model classic beers styles from across the globe and include some unique proprietary recipes developed by Erik Schmid, owner and founder of the Brewmeister. Erik has been home brewing since 1990, has completed a comprehensive brewing program from The American Brewer's Guild, and has brewed commercially for several years. In 2018, Erik also opened Red Bus Brewing Company, our sister company and brewery based out of Folsom, CA (come visit us there too!).

We also provide a large variety of home wine making supplies to West Sacramento and Folsom. During the harvest season, we provide special services including press and crusher destemmer rentals. For more information, please visit our wine making pages.

Our Team...

We take pride in that every member of our staff team is a motivated and knowledgeable home brewer. We love what we do, which is why we are a recognized and trusted resource for home beer making and home wine making. We provide informational and fun brewing classes once a month, and information for beginning and advanced brewers alike on our e-learning blog. We also stock a collection of specialty how-to books and style guides for home brewing and home wine making (not to mention mead, ciders, and cheese-making). Just meeting our staff and seeing our extensive inventory is worth a trip to one of our locations!
