The Desert Fox Brewing Story

We’ve been waiting for the opening of Desert Fox Brewing Company for a few months now. They are a small 1 barrel brewery located in the back of Renegade Brewing Supplies, which we’ve written about a few times because they are awesome! Renegade Brewing Supplies was started by Megan Henslick in 2016 after 15 years of homebrewing.  She took her knowledge and love for her craft to the next level and began sharing her knowledge with the homebrew community in the Central Valley. 

In 2020 Crust and Crumb, an artisan pizzeria and bakery, in Turlock approached Megan and offered a partnership which would begin the road to Desert Fox Brewing Company. When the partnership was offered to supply Crust and Crumb with small batch hand-crafted beer, Megan got to work and partnered with her Lead Brewer and business partner, Luke Henslick.  

Beer is now flowing at the Crust and Crumb (you can get pints!), as well as kegs and growlers being sold at the brewery.  All the beer brewed by Desert Fox is open source, and available as a kit in all grain or partial mash at Renegade Brewing Supplies. Their current beers on tap are Spec Hops IPA, Tranquility Cream Ale, Black Ops Blonde Ale and Renegade Pale Ale.
