Mother Earth Brewing was founded in the summer of 2008 by Stephen Hill and Trent Mooring, both from Kinston, North Carolina, a city of under 25,000 residents. Their love of beer began with homebrewing and working for a local grocery store that sold craft beers. They were always tasting beer, talking about beer, and visiting breweries.
Brew Master Josh Brewer began homebrewing in 1995 when he received a homebrew kit as a Christmas gift. The story goes, he went from Josh Brewer to “Josh, the Brewer.” His commercial career began as a keg washer for a Chicago brewpub (for free!), and later he was working as the Brew Master at brewpubs in Hilton Head, South Carolina, Savannah, Georgia… even the Big Island of Hawaii.
After learning of Stephen and Trent’s vision for Mother Earth Brewing, which included Earth-friendly practices and a unique one-barrel test brewery, Josh packed up and moved his family to eastern North Carolina. The mission of Mother Earth Brewing is “To help you savor the goodness of Mother Earth.”
The wit beer style may be over 400 years old, but it continues to be one of the most popular. Weeping Willow Wit, though brewed year round, is a summertime brew that is both easy to drink and refreshing. Mother Earth Brewing’s Brew Master says, “Our Wit offers a light flavor that carefully balances sweet and tart. Can you guess the secret spice?”
