About Jay’s Brewing

Jay’s Brewing has been selling home brewing supplies since 2002 and over the years has expanded it’s offerings to include wine, cheese, yogurt, kombucha, and mead making supplies.

Established in 2002, Jay’s Brewing began operation in the basement of the original owner, ‘Jay”. Later, in 2008 Jay had the opportunity to move to North Carolina and start up a meadery. So, with a desire to continue the legacy, 2nd owner Derek Satz purchased Jay’s Brewing and decided keep the name as an homage to the original owner. Since 2008 Derek worked hard to expand upon the homegrown operation. With the addition of a full functioning website, and a thriving storefront, Derek’s contributions laid the foundation for what Jay’s is today. Then in early 2014 Derek’s entrepreneurial spirit got the best of him and his focus began shifting to bigger things and by the following year he was ready to make his move. Having keyed into some of the tell-tale signs, and for fear that we might lose my beloved homebrew shop, Jill and I expressed our interest to purchase the business. Over the course of a few months the details were worked out and Jill and I are now the proud owners of Jay’s Brewing, Northern Virginia’s longest standing Homebrew Supply shop.

We are located in Manassas, Virginia.  All of our ingredients are loose, meaning we have everything in bulk.  Jay’s Brewing is a brewer’s grocery store, so you can help yourself!  We have everything you need for your recipes!
