Hoggetowne Ale Works

Welcome To Hoggetowne Ale Works, Gainesville's only full-service Homebrew Supply Shop!


If you are a homebrewer or wine maker in North Central Florida, or are interested in learning how to hand-craft your favorite fermented beverages at home, we invite you to visit us at 3735 W. University Avenue in Gainesville, just minutes from the Interstate and the university. We carry all the equipment and ingredients to supply brewers of all experience levels - whether you are about to brew your first batch or your 100th, our passionate staff is here to help!


We stock a full range of over 70 malts and grains from maltsters including Weyermann, Rahr, Chateau (Castle), Briess, Muntons, Simpsons, Gambrinus, Dingemans, Bairds, and Crisp. We carry more than 70 hops from all over the world. Our selection of yeast includes the full line of White Labs liquid brewing yeast, a limited number of Omega Yeast and Yeast Bay strains, and a full selection of all types/brands of dry yeast.


We also carry equipment and ingredients for making wine, mead, cider, and soda!


If we do not have an item you are looking for in stock, we'll check our extensive network of wholesalers and special order it for you for no extra charge.


Feel free to call ahead or email for larger orders; it will greatly reduce your wait time if you are concerned about being "in line" or short on time. We do not mind at all.
