Leeners opened on October 6, 1996 in Macedonia, Ohio. Originally dedicated to homebrewing and wine making, by 1998 we expanded our products to include the many You-Make-Kit™ activities found on our website. And in March of 2004, Leeners relocated to a bigger facility in Northfield, Ohio.
Originally founded by Jim & Eileen Leverentz, Leeners is more than a homebrew supply store. Our kits range from kid-friendly root beer and even mozzarella cheese to more advanced meat curing and adult beverages such as sake. Leeners tests all of the products we sell which provides our customers with a level of service that is only available through experience, we are your experts! Our program of product improvement and development combined with regular customer communication and daily updates to our website makes Leeners a family friendly, full-service company.
The You-Make-Kit™ Brand kits, produced at our facility in Northfield, Ohio, are food and drink related do-it-yourself kits designed to be both educational and functional. Our goal is to teach life skills while creating memorable food products using the techniques and traditions of a simpler and more relaxed time. The DIY experience continues after a kit has been completed because the component parts of all kits may be ordered (refilled) individually at any time on our website.
