Hours: Tue-Thu 4-8p, Fri-Sat 2-9p & Sun 12-6p
Tours $12 & include a flight of 4 x 8oz tasters.
Who we are: We are a neighborhood, small batch brewery and use only the highest quality ingredients (no extract!). You won’t find standard pints around here, but you will find tours and tastings that include flights of 4 x 8oz tasters. We don’t take ourselves too seriously though, and show classic, cult and B-movies every Friday & Saturday night. We enjoy experimenting with beer, long walks on the beach, and educating about beer and brewing. Classes on beer styles, brewing, ingredients, off-flavors, and the history of beer are held every month in the Lab!
Like we said, we’re just your friendly, neighborhood Brew Lab.

Grindhaus Brew Lab: the evolution of the revolution.
Grindhaus Brew Lab was hatched by Robb Larson and Lisa Colburn. Robb & Lisa have an extensive history in craft beer, dating back to when Robb got his start homebrewing in college in the 1990’s. After meeting, & a brief brewing hiatus while moving to Florida, they bought a house & resumed homebrewing. Soon after Robb was featured in a Creative Loafing story about homebrewing by Taylor Eason, then was asked to take on the role as beer blogger for TaylorEason.com. About that same time he introduced a friend to his homebrews, which inspired his friend to open a large production brewery in Tampa. Robb spent the next couple of years there as the Small Batch/Pilot Brewer & Director of Beer Development, while getting his Siebel certifications in Sensory Panel Management, Master of Beer Styles, & Professional Beer Styles & Tasting. Meanwhile, Lisa was starting up the Bay Area Barley’s Angels, a craft beer education group for women, publishing the Craft Beer Tasting Journal (available on Amazon), & getting her Cicerone Certified Beer Server.
Not being large brewery people, in 2015 Robb & Lisa decided to pursue their dream of a owning a small, community business & opened HiFi Homebrew Supply, followed by Grindhaus Brew Lab in 2016, where they continue to focus on quality & education.
