About Us

The exciting journey started in 2013...

with the rescue of a failing business. The original store was founded in 1994. First called "Home Brewing Supplies", it was located in a shopping center on Highway 78 in Stone Mountain where the Lowe's now sits. In 1997, the shopping center was demolished to make way for the Lowe's. The previous owners moved the shop to Lilburn where the new owners would eventually take over in September 2013. They renamed it Lilburn Home Brew. With hard work and a dedication to customer satisfaction, the store evolved into a prominent business within 18 months. Part of that rebuild required a move to a new and better location. In August 2014, the store relocated to its current location in Snellville and was renamed Operation Homebrew.

Operation Homebrew is owned and operated by a husband and wife team, both Air Force veterans. The business owners have met people from all over Georgia who love wine, especially sweet wine. They’ve also met a lot of folks who love the process of making wine (and don’t even drink!). Natural progression led to the addition of a winery: the owners recently upgraded “the best darn homebrew store in Georgia” to include a winery with a focus on southern style wines.

Before moving the business to Snellville in 2014, the owners started working with Snellville City officials to amend the laws to allow for wineries, breweries, and distilleries. With the recent culmination of that process, Operation Homebrew opened the first winery in Snellville (March 2018). The winery offers small batch, handmade wines focusing on quality, not quantity. Operation Homebrew specializes in Southern Style Sweet Wines: Blackberry, Blueberry, Peach Apricot, Sangria, Green Apple, Black Cherry, Black Raspberry, Strawberry, and more! Premium wines include Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Moscato, Riesling, and more!

Operation Homebrew has all the supplies and ingredients you need to make beer, wine, mead, cider, soda, cheese, and more! Home of the cheapest Bulk Grain Sack prices in the state! A vast network of suppliers satisfies all your homebrew wants and needs. Home brewing is the best hobby in the world. Hey, it's better than a stamp collection (tastes better too)!
