NEPENTHE BREWING CO.
BREWERY + TAPROOM + HOMEBREW SHOP
GETTING EXCITED FOR NEPENTHE BREWING CO.?
Here is an FAQ to answer all your burning questions about our big move to our future home in Hampden, Baltimore!
Q. What is Nepenthe Brewing Co. anyway?
A. Get excited - Nepenthe is expanding! Brewery + Taproom + Homebrew Shop ALL UNDER ONE ROOF. We’ll soon be called Nepenthe Brewing Co. and will be your new favorite place to drink fresh beer, grab a bite to eat, and shop for your homebrewing supplies. We’ve got a 10 barrel brewhouse on the way and are building a super awesome taproom that will have some tasty food to cover all your basic nutritional needs. And of course, our award-winning homebrew store will also be tagging along! We’ll be located at 3626 Falls Road in Hampden, just off the Avenue.
Q. Is Nepenthe Homebrew back open yet?
A. Yes... sort of. We moved out of our original location this summer and have been under construction ever since. We will be taking online for pick up at the new location (3626 Falls Road in Hampden) beginning on Wednesday, Sept. 26 just in time for all your fall brews! We will open again to the public and you can come in and shop as you normally would once the entire shebang is finished (probably early November). We’d love to open just the shop portion sooner, but permits don’t work that way.
Q. So when will the new place be open then?
A. Sometime this Fall. More details will be announced as an official date becomes clear. Don’t worry, we’re working as hard as we can to open ASAP.
Q. When can I start shopping at Nepenthe again?
A. Good news! We are now accepting online orders for pick-up at our new location through our website. Never used our online shop before? It’s super easy - we’ll pack your order up for you to swing by and pick up (see below for details on that)! We’ll even crush your grain for you if you’d like. But remember - we don’t ship online orders. And don’t worry, you’ll be able to come in and shop as normal once the entire place is ready to open.
Q. When and where an I pick up my order?
A. Orders can be picked up anytime Wednesday-Sunday between 11am-7pm. Once you’ve received an email that your order is ready to be picked up, just come to our new location (3626 Falls Road in Hampden) during our designated pick-up hours. Give us a call or come on in and we’ll grab your order for you. Under normal circumstances, orders are ready within an hour of placing your order. Just a heads up, if you place an order on a Monday, the earliest it will be ready is that Wednesday - so plan ahead!
Q. How can I stay on top of your progress?
A. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for updates and photographic evidence of progress! Also, sign up for our email list!
Q. Do you guys need help?
A. Hell yes. We’d love to have your help! We’ll call for volunteers as we need them, but feel free to just stop by and lend a hand!
Q. What's up with in-store brewing?
A. In-store brewing will resume one day in the future when we get our feet under us in the new space. Got a gift card and don’t want to wait to start brewing? No problem! Gift cards for in-store brewing are still good for merchandise in the shop during the interim, so if you can’t wait to start brewing we can set you up with everything you’ll need to brew at home! (Note that our webstore doesn’t work with our gift cards, but if you call or email us we’ll work it out with you!)
Q. Are you hiring?
A. We are! Check out our Jobs section for ongoing calls for folks to join Team Nepenthe!
Q. What about Benny?
A. He’s been missing his customer friends and can’t wait to see you soon.
