Our Story

White Labs Brewing Co.

Housed inside a yeast factory producing brewers yeast since 1995, White Labs Brewing Co. was started in 2012 as a way to showcase the influence yeast and fermentation have on beer.

Our brewery is used not only to make crowd favorite beers and styles, but for research and development to gain insight into new and innovative yeast strains along with industry classics.

"l love talking about the science of yeast and it's impact on flavor and aroma. Opening a brewery was a way we could showcase this impact." - Chris White, Founder of White Labs

THE SCIENCE BEHIND FERMENTATION

Fermentation impacts our every day lives. From the yogurt for breakfast to the bread with lunch and dinner, fermentation is responsible for some of our favorite food and beverages. Using microorganisms and fermentation techniques, we’re able to craft beers enjoyable to beer geeks and non-beer geeks alike.

 

Did you know, brewers yeast are responsible for over 500 flavor and aroma compounds?

From a small colony of cells to the beer in your glass, White Labs Brewing Co. ensures the entire process of brewing and serving sets the highest standards of quality.

What began as home brewers searching for higher quality yeast, quickly grew into a team of dedicated biochemists exploring new ways to advance brewing altogether.


Today, White Labs stands at the intersection of science, education and craft. Constantly striving for perfection, and in the process continually raising the bar in the art of fermentation.


Every day, we set out on a single mission: To stretch the limits of science in order to set new standards in purity and freshness.


From the industry’s first pitchable liquid yeast to a complete revolution in the way it’s propagated and packaged, our innovative spirit is tireless.


And our belief that creating the best, most environmentally friendly products goes hand-in-hand with making the best use of them, has inspired a culture of education and collaboration with brewers, distillers and winemakers the world over.
