Our Sponsors

The Worthogs would like to recognize and thank the following businesses for their continued support and donations:


ManCan has set out to provide an alternative solution to the conventional cans, bottles and growlers for craft beer lovers and homebrewers, and it all started in a garage. 

Spike Brewing

What sets us apart from other companies is how we sanitary TIG weld couplers (for connecting valves, thermometers, etc). We do that very specialized welding right here in the USA at our facility. Most companies use weld-less fittings which we believe is an inferior way to attach ball valves, thermometers and sight glasses Weld-less fittings rely on o-rings to create a leak free seal (as opposed to our welds). Weld-less fittings are more finicky to install, have more parts to clean and will eventually need to have o-rings replaced.  

White Labs

White Labs stands at the intersection of science, education and craft. Constantly striving for perfection, and in the process continually raising the bar in the art of fermentation. Every day, we set out on a single mission: To stretch the limits of science in order to set new standards in purity and freshness. 

Southwest Grape & Grain

New Mexico's largest selection of beer and wine making ingredients and equipment! Kegerators, draft equipment, cheese making, kombucha, keifer, yogurt, and more!  We can also assist with helpful advice, reference materials, and on-site seminars. 

Yakima Valley Hops

Located in the Heart of Hop Country. We have access to some of the freshest and highest quality hops on the planet! We have over 140 varieties, crop year transparency, and mylar foil resealable bags. Fresh from the source to your kettle!

Blichmann Engineering

Blichmann Engineering, LLC is a design and manufacturing firm wholesaling highly engineered products through home beer and wine retailers. We offer only the most intuitively designed, innovative products with the highest level of quality for brewers who expect the same in their beers and wines.

Imperial Yeast

By producing a certified organic brewing yeast, Imperial is giving brewers the option to use a high-quality yeast and at the same time use a yeast that is produced with GMO-free, 100% natural ingredients. We are proud to be the first manufacturer of certified organic liquid yeast, producing a product in an environmentally responsible way.
