Update: June 2022
Good News is that we finally OPEN!! Bad news is...there is no bad news, WE'RE open!!
Keep a close eye on our Facebook and Instagram accounts for news on new brew, events and food trucks!
Just a few of homebrewers/friends, who's hobby and passion has gotten completely out of control. While brewing together we soon found out that we all didn't just share a passion for beer, but also a birth year...1977. Starting with a 5 gallon pot just a few years ago, it soon lead to a 15 gallon "keggle" set up...to a 1 BBL set-up...and now a 3 BBL system!!!
We spent time getting our feet wet (sometimes literally) by brewing with the 330 Brewing Co-op in Akron. Honing in a few recipes there and some others that friends kept asking to make, we are now bringing brewing back to Navarre, OH.
Navarre is a great little town which sits on the old Ohio-Erie Canal (which use to run through our parking lot!). We are on a mission to become a local spot that Local's can be proud of!
Navarre did have a brewery, which started around 1850, and appears to have had more owners than beer styles. Changing hands several times, it finally closed in 1876. Meaning Navarre hasn't had a brewery since 1877.
Our little spot was built around twenty years later (just a stones throw from the Hug Brewery's original location) and started life as a house. Since then it has been feed storage, a farmers market, beauty salon, 2 pizza shops, and most recently a flower shop. Being employed full time and having young families, we had to have more vision than money. Starting in July of 2019, we have been working almost every weekend to bring you our vision of this century's local bar, the local micro-brew house.
So from us born in 1977, we give you and the Village of Navarre something that hasn't been seen since 1877, a local brewery. YOUR local brewery... '77 Brew House. Cheers!
Our Goal & Mission
Giving Back Though Beer
Not originally being from the area, it is important to us that we become part of the local community. A lot of people drive through the village, we want to give them another reason to stop, take a break and see what else there is to offer. The quaint shops and history. The friendly faces and good times.
But that is not all. It is our mission to give back to the village and local organizations that give so much to the community. We have previously teamed up with Save22.vet, a local veteran's suicide awareness group who has helped many deal with the life after active service. Inspired by several discussions with their founder, we created the Valknut a Smoked Red IPA. The Valknut is the triple triangle symbol that was carried by Odin, and translates to "fallen warrior". At their annual hike, we severed the Valknut and proceeds were donated back to the organization. Now that we have a "brick and mortar" location to call our own, we can do the same all the time. Inspired by what we did with Save22, we are putting plans together to have a similar program, where a portion of a specific beer will be donated to a local charity or organization. Giving back through beer is just one of the ways we will be looking to giving back to our new community.
Anyone can have a regular glass mug for their mug club, we wanted to do something different. Working with a local artist, we "think" we have created the most unique mug club mug in area.
The mugs will be individually numbered. They will be unique in texture and color. No more will you question if the bartender gave you the right mug, there will be no doubt.
Keeping your beer cold will be a priority you realize your mug holds more than any other mug in the county. Over 20 ounces! These stoneware mugs will have no problems staying colder than a glass mug and certainly cooler to look at!
The ONLY way to get yours will be to join the Mug or Founders Club. Details coming soon....
Brimstone Honey Chocolate Porter
Fawcett's Revenge Double IPA
Stone Temple Pilsner (STP) Honey Pils
Blinker Fluid Blonde Mocha Stout
