Junkyard Brewing Company

Junkyard Brewing Company unkyard Brewing Company was conceived as I brewed my first batch of homebrew in college. I still remember that batch; it was a five-gallon recipe with eight pounds of dark malt extract powder and eight ounces of chinook hops for the boil with a packet of dry yeast to ferment it. I "bottled" this first batch in pint-sized canning jars and judged when the natural carbonation had taken place by the "plink, plink" noises of the lids buckling upward under pressure. Friends suggested names for my first brew, and one stands out in my mind: "Junk's Trunk". It was nicknames like these than helped guide me toward choosing the name "Junkyard" for our brewing company when the time came to attach a name to my idea.
