What began as home brewers searching for higher quality yeast, grew into a team of dedicated biochemists exploring new ways to advance their passion for brewing altogether.

White Labs was founded through homebrewing back in 1995 and today we continue to cherish the community as it is the backbone of this company.

We welcome you as a member of the White Labs family and ask you to join us in the pursuit of innovation with White Labs Fermentation Society.
