Hours: Wed-Thu 2-10p, Fri-Sat 2-11p & Sun 12-6p
Who we are: We are a neighborhood, small batch brewery and use only the highest quality, natural ingredients. You won’t find standard pints around here, but you will find 10oz beakers of beer. 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 brewing are held quarterly 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 (now Grindhaus Brew Lab Homebrew Supply), followed by the Grindhaus Brew Lab Tap Room in 2016, where they continue to focus on quality & education.
