Omega Yeast

Omega Yeast Labs is one of the fastest-growing companies in the craft beer industry. We offer over 75 different strains of fresh liquid yeast for probrewers and homebrewers — each determining a beer’s style, flavor, and aroma. In addition to exciting innovations in yeast, we are launching two projects in 2022 that will require individual branding and design needs. One project is an online publication about modern brewing. The other is a top-secret coffee brand. Omega Yeast has become well-known for its creative branding so we put a lot of care and resources into design and creativity.

Omega was founded in 2013 on the idea of doing things better. We’re known for our progressive propagation techniques, innovative yeast strains, reliable service, and creative branding. We’re a tight-knit group of knowledgeable, passionate, science-based people and our curiosity about cutting-edge practices is revolutionizing the yeast industry.
