ABOUT US

Brewvana provides homebrew kits and beer boxes to beer curious customers in an approachable fashion with an expert voice.

Brewvana is the premier online retailer and community for home-brew classes, equipment and beer boxes. From total beginner to expert brewmaster, we’ve got you covered. We’re building a craft brewing community one kit at a time.

Brewvana was born when our sister company, City Brew Tours, had to pivot and find a way to survive and thrive through the COVID-19 Pandemic. We used our more than a decade worth of experience and knowledge of the craft beer industry to create Brewvana. Instead of touring breweries, we bring the full experience to the comfort of your own home. Brewvana is one stop shopping for craft beer lovers everywhere.

Brewvana offers a wide array of options for beer enthusiasts to choose from: homebrew kits and classes, our Master the Brew Recipe Club and curated beer boxes. 

Our sister company, City Brew Tours was founded in Burlington, Vermont in 2008 by Chad Brodsky, a college kid who had fallen in love with craft beer while studying in Vienna. When Chad arrived home he bought a used church van, put on his lederhosen, and set off to spread the gospel of craft beer. At the tender age of 21, Chad became the first to establish a brewery tour company on the East Coast.

Burlington Brew Tours became well known for its unique tours led by beer geeks who doubled as designated drivers. Our Brewvana Beer Experts are just as qualified as our CBT Beer Guides!  

In 2012, with tours running in two cities, Chad changed the company’s name to “City Brew Tours” and set off to add more locations. As City Brew Tours grew, Barry Hansen, Jr., a professional brewer and part time City Brew Tours beer guide grew into the role of COO and became co-owner.

With Barry on board, City Brew Tours grew quickly. As of  June, 2020, City Brew Tours operates in 11 cities and continues to expand. City Brew Tours is the only brewery tour franchisor to operate on both U.S. coasts and in Canada.

And now you can find us just about anywhere with Brewvana!
