Hello and welcome to Back Porch Brewing website. We named our brewery after how we began.  On the back porch! Yes, we started on our back porch.

     Owners Rod Harman and Tim Wickard have been friends for many years.  Tim was a Miller Lite drinker and Rod had been home brewing for years and kept pushing Tim to try craft beer.  So after months of trying, they finally decided to make a home brew together.  It was amazing and Tim was hooked.

     After a few brews on the kitchen stove, they decided to buy a small half barrel brew house and move their hobby to the back porch.  After they had a few beers on tap they had some friends come over and try the brews.  Everyone loved the beers and encourage them to take their hobby and make it a career.

     They started the process of getting their brewery license in the summer of 2019.  They finally received approval September of 2019. They immediately took samples to a couple restaurants in town. The orders received quickly out grew their half barrel brewing system. So right away they had to upgrade to one barrel tanks and started brewing double batches.
     Their license for the back porch location only allowed for manufacturing so they could only sell beer wholesale to bars and restaurants. Everything was going great and then Covid hit.

     During Covid they found the building at 133 N Hanover street and found it to be a perfect location for a store front.  They new this would be their new home for the brewery and restaurant.   So the next two and a half years they spent renovating the new space.

     Today Back Porch Brewing has become a very popular place.  We host many different events like open mic nights, trivia nights, live music and or Dj's every Friday and Saturday night and some special event on Sundays.  Check our Events page for all listing.

     We have a very large space and can accomidate large gatherings.  You can reserve our space for a special event you have planned such as a wedding receptions, reunion etc.  Just contact us though our Contact page.
