1st Republic Brewing Company and Homebrew Shop
1st Republic Brewing Company started when a couple friends who worked together, started homebrewing together. After brewing for years in their garage in Fairfax, they decided to start distributing. After dozens of brewfests in Vermont and having a blast brewing beer, the time came to expand their operation, so they decided to move to Essex, Vermont. Their dream was to open up a brewery and homebrew shop, to stay close to the roots of what got them started.
1st Republic Brewing Company's Homebrew Shop is where you can not only buy products in store - you can also order online! Our mission is to provide all brewers, wine makers, cider makers, and mead makers in Vermont and the surrounding area with the best products possible.
We offer over 40 different types of grain, which include all eight types of malt from Peterson Quality Malt, grown in Monkton, VT. We have a mill in our facility, so you can mill all the grain you get.
For our online store, orders placed before 12:00 PM will be shipped same day to your location. If you live within 150 miles of us, you should receive your order the next business day.
Check back regularly because we are always updating our site, adding promotions, and making things better. Send us a note if you have any questions!
Thanks, and happy brewing!
