Encouraged by the reception given to their beer by friends, Romy and Garith decided to build a modest brewery adjacent to their home in Modesto, California. Ah! The beauty of a handcrafted microbrew can pop up wherever, whenever. Much like your coveted beer shipment and all of our other gourmet clubs!
Construction commenced in 1981 and, three years later, Modesto was home to a new 1,000-barrel brewery. The Helm’s produced their first commercial beer (delivered in kegs) in July of 1984! Not missing a beat they began bottling liter bottles in 1986 and sensed an overpowering urge to expand the brewery. This team was fixed on winning some sort of beer producing record as they began 12-oz. bottling in 1987 and you guessed it…time to build again.
The original brewery adjacent to their home was now running at full capacity. And true to form for being a team not known to waste time, Romy and Garith began the construction for St. Stan’s newest addition in the fall of 1989; do you see a pattern here folks? Completed in September of 1990, the new downtown Modesto brewery offers an annual capacity of 12,000-barrels and sports a state of the art microbiological lab that allows their masterbrewer to closely monitor each batch.
