Originally located in Clipper Mill, Nepenthe Homebrew sought to expand after two years. J C Porter assisted with the new site identification along with project planning and the preconstruction process. The project consisted of a locating a space large enough to house a brewery, brew pub and homebrew store. Remaining loyal to Hampden, Nepenthe Brewing Co. chose to occupy space that originally served as a sports bar. Substantial demolition was necessary and J C Porter made necessary economic decisions that the infrastructure was adequate to support. Nepenthe serves as a great new addition to Hampden.
