Resting Place of the Hummingbird

“Umunhum” means “resting place of the hummingbird.”

Our mission is to create a new “resting place” worthy of our local community.

Supporting Local Businesses

We try to work with and support local businesses here in San Jose as much as we can, including all of the places currently carrying our beer.

Here are our beers . . .

Beer of the people, by the people, and for the people

Our co-op is democratically owned and operated — from creating beer recipes to brewing the beer and providing feedback in our tasting events (i.e. participating in "quality control").

While all members are invited to participate, you may be as active (or inactive) as you like. Either way, you get to tell your friends you own a brewery.
