In 2009, Humble Sea Brewery began in the side yard of a seedy dwelling, located in Santa Cruz’s Pleasure Point. Nick Pavlina was in his early twenties and had recently graduated from Chico State University. He moved into the ultimate bachelor pad with his best friends in the heart of Pleasure Point. There were monthly parties, plenty of surf to be had and copious amounts of beer consumption. Nick regularly brewed, using his friends as a testing ground.
Before long, his beer was in high demand. Seven years later, after circulating through a variety of Nick’s acquaintances, Frank & Taylor moved into the same 34th ave house. Where the original idea was planted, Nick’s dream sprung forward like a weed with just enough sunlight. Collaboration occurred. A team formed. Humble Sea Brewery ascended upwards and into clouds of soft water profiles Southern Hemispheric aromas.
