Kb started over ten years ago when Jonathan Kaiser was given a large box of home brewing equipment. That box sat in his garage for a few more years and he was about ready to sell it when his wife, Wynter, suggested he try making one batch first. And it was love at first brew!
Brewing eventually became more than just a hobby; it started to facilitate relationships. Wynter and the kids would help out, and, over the years, as the Kaisers opened their garage door to make a new batch of home brew, neighbors, other homebrewers, even passers-by would stop in to watch, lend a hand or just chat for hours about beer, life, even religion and politics.
Hundreds of hours of brewing, a few awards, a new house, and a lot more equipment purchased later, Jonathan and Wynter Kaiser made the decision to open their own brewery in their hometown of Forest Grove, Oregon with community in mind.
Kb is a fully licensed brewery, and in 2020 we got our winery license to make and sell our own hard apple cider with locally sourced fruit.
Then COVID changed everything. Like many businesses all over the world, the shutdown gave us time to focus on our family and other priorities. With that in mind, we made the hard decision in the fall of 2021 to take an indefinite pause.
We are not closing our doors for good. Rather, we look forward to some day picking up where we left off. And who knows, we may surprise you from time to time with a special pop-up appearance or a limited release of Kb favorites. Please continue to follow us on Instagram and Facebook for updates.
Our love for community, fellowship, and good beer remains and we are grateful for all our #kbbelievers out there. Thanks for being part of our brew story.
