Olive the Best is proud to launch their new Brew Supply store! Located in the back room of their East Birch Avenue location, High Altitude Brew Supply is the newest brew supply business to Flagstaff's local beer connoisseurs.
The shop is centered around the brewing of beer, but is also carrying products to aid in the brewing of wine, cider, mead, and wash. High Altitude Home Brew Supply is stocked with an array of different malted barleys, a malted wheat, a malted rye and other un-malted grains, in addition to both liquid and dry malt extract. High Altitude will focus on the new varieties of domestic and imported hops being released, and will offer a selection of liquid and dried yeasts for ales, lagers, wines and mead.
Meet the Brewer: Adam Harrington
Adam Harrington was born and raised in Tucson, AZ. He received his Bachelor of Science at Northern Arizona University and never wanted to leave Flagstaff. He began brewing at home in 2010 with the intention of trying to mimic some of his favorite brews. After 3 years of working in outdoor programming around Northern Arizona he decided to pursue brewing as a career. His passion for all things brewing was concreted and set out to become a brewer at one of the best breweries in Arizona, Mother Road Brewing Company.
With only his passion and wits in hand, he spent the next 4 years living, drinking and breathing brewing. In that time he performed nearly every job in the brewery including becoming Lead Brewer. He's known for his thirst for knowledge, recreational reading about science and history of beer and brewing and dedication to the craft. One of the things he enjoys most is developing recipes which he has done at the home brew level and professional level in collaboration with the other employees. Recently he had to give up his brewing role after an Injury to his back, which pushed him to find another interesting role in the industry he loves so much. So here he is! Running the much anticipated brew shop in town. He claims to be more excited than anyone else to have a brewing supplies shop right here in Flagstaff.
He is also an active member of the Flagstaff home brew group, the Mountain Top Mashers. Beyond brewing he enjoys playing Ultimate Frisbee, mountain biking, grilling in the back yard with friends and reading (mainly science fiction).
