Look Who’s in the News

Want the DIY skinny on BYOB?

A Modesto business has you covered. In this case, those latter letters refer to Brew Your Own Beer, and the Barley & Wine supply and education shop locally reflects a nationwide explosion in do-it-yourself home brewing.

“Home brewing began its growth in popularity in the early ’90s and with the recent growth in craft beer has, in turn, exploded over the past five years,” Barley & Wine owner Steve Leandres said in an email interview. Leandres and his partners, cousins Galen and Sean Wildeman, bought the shop from a former owner and reopened Barley & Wine on – fittingly – St. Patrick’s Day 2010, moving it from Ceres to an east Modesto shopping center on Oakdale Road.

“The original owner … decided to retire, and I had been recently laid off from a job in corporate sales,” Leandres said. “I wanted to make sure the Central Valley still had a dedicated homebrew supply shop, and the rest is history.”

Barley & Wine is the only homebrew and wine making supply shop between Sacramento and Fresno, he said. Add to that a sweet dose of timing and it looks like a recipe for a sudsy success. Read more ›
