Dew Point Brewing Co.

The University of South Carolina’s Alexa Hoffman developed an interest in craft brewing while attending college there. Since her father John worked in the chemistry field, she reasoned that asking for a home brewing kit for Christmas would be a pleasant hobby for her and her family. But instead, it will one day become a family business that was entirely unknown to Alexa. Browse around this site.


Cody Hoffman, her 16-year-old brother, would catch the beer-brewing bug while assisting his father in making beer using the home brewing kit, which they had purchased.


Following that, he begged and pleaded with local breweries for employment. Triumph Brewing Company eventually hired him in New Hope, Pennsylvania. For the following eight months, they put their faith in a boy who had just graduated from high school and helped him absorb as much as he could about the beer-making process.


Twin Lakes Brewing Company in Greenville, DE, and an eight-month stint at a brewing school in England were the following two destinations on Cody’s road trip. However, his father had an idea a few months after returning from England…


A decrepit building in the Garrett Snuff Mill complex, which was erected in 1901, was discovered by John in October 2013, after more than a year of seeking the ideal site for the brewery and tasting room. Because his family had lived in the vicinity of Yorklyn for the previous 30 years, John immediately felt at ease and ease with himself.


The more John thought about what he and his family would need to operate a successful company, the more he realized that he already had everything he needed. In addition to Cody, Georgiana (John’s wife) would oversee the financial side of the brewery, while Alexa would be in charge of planning special events for the company. As a custom carpenter by profession, John’s brother Fran would be well-suited to help revitalize the structure. At the same time, John’s nephew, Nick Matarese, who operates his creative agency in Wilmington, would be well-suited for branding and marketing efforts. Next Blog Post >>>
