We want to thank everyone who came out to the Lake Arrowhead Brewfest last weekend. As always, we were blown away by the community’s support and positive feedback! Andrew Divoff raised $579 for the Mountain Film and Theater Arts Committee scholarships through the sale of T-shirts and autographed photos. He wants to raise another $421 to make an even $1000, so he’s extending his charity drive on his webstore until the goal is met. Check out the video above more more information.
We were also thrilled to introduce two new brews–the Trugger’s Logger Lager and the Cowboy IPA. Trugger will be hitting store shelves in San Bernardino County soon, with plans to release the Cowboy IPA shortly after. I’ve got to admit, I’m not an IPA kind of gal at all, but this IPA was pleasant by my standards; pleasantly smooth and not punishingly bitter.
A busy Brewfest weekend didn’t prevent the Three Marm team from getting a LOT of other stuff done. I got to take part in an early-morning bottling session with Andrew and our head brewer Donnie, knocking out six cases the morning on the Brewfest. The guys also started installing the cold-room in our future brewery. Check back soon for some BIG news this fall!
California’s Burning! True Enough, the mind never focuses so keenly as when the disaster or the thing you fear the most comes to your neighborhood.
This is a picture of a house fire in my neighborhood started by an inconsiderate and uninformed weekend renter. The fire occurred on Sunday, August 5th.
He, or she, moved a smoldering bunch of coals from an outdoor fire pit to a fireplace indoors without verifying whether or not the flue was open. It started a chimney fire which nearly burned down the house you see here and the house next to it.
BIG THANKS and SUPPORT to our San Bernardino Forest First Responders and to Cal Fire from beyond our Mountain Communities for putting their lives between the material things we hold so dear and the ruthless flames that engulf everything in their path both animate and inanimate.
As you HellaKids and BeerNuts know, we at THREE MARM put our hearts and our purposeful causes into our craft.
We will introduce our Trugger’s – Logger Lager to the www.LakeArrowheadBrewFest.com crowd for the first time this coming August 11th. We look forward to a vibrant and constructive dialogue regarding our forest, and all forests nationwide and what steps we can take that will keep our forests, the communities they surround and the first responders – who are called out with ever increasing frequency – healthy and safe.
Please chime in and help make this a National Chorus that ensures harmony in our forests for many more generations to come.
It’s that time again! Saturday, August 11, 2018 is the date of the Lake Arrowhead Brewfest, where we will be pouring not one, but three varieties of beer. In addition to our iconic Djinn’s HellaBrew, we will be pouring our two new brews, Cowboy IPA and Trugger’s Logger Lager. This will be your first chance to try these before they are sold in stores. We will be at the VIP tent and request a $5 minimum donation for sampling our beer (with unlimited refills). 100% of your donations will benefit the Mountain Film and Theater Arts Committee, which provides scholarships to young people who wish to pursue careers in the performing arts.
Our founder, Andrew Divoff, will be present and selling other merchandise and autographs to benefit MFTAC (click the video above for more information). Starting tonight at midnight (PST) through August 11, he will also donate 100% of all sales from his personal online store to benefit MFTAC.
We look forward to meeting you at the Brewfest and serving our community!

Our founder Andrew Divoff will be at Wales Comic Con April 21-22, 2018. While in Wales, Andrew has had a chance to be inspired by local breweries. Here’s his announcement from his recent Facebook post:
As I mention in the video, I spent yesterday afternoon strolling through Chester and came upon my new favorite Micro-Brewery in the world, Brewhouse & Kitchen where I met Matthew – Head Brewer, Todd and Sam who together make this a stop worth taking. I told these fine gentlemen about my fledgling brewery, Three Marm Brewing, and about having our first ever commercial batch of the Djinn’s Hellabrew fermenting as we speak. They were kind enough to offer their advice and insight as we progress and I am indeed very thankful and excited about that.
I will have two of my 2 oz 925 silver/rhodium plated Djinn Rings with Garnet, sculpted by me, with me for the event. To all my old and new friends, please come by my table and ask me about them.
BEST, for now, ADD”

The past week has been eventful for Three Marm Brewing. Even though we are still working toward opening our taproom, we will be getting out beer on shelves in California in the near future! We are now contract brewing with Inland Empire Brewing Company to create our first commercial batch of the Djinn’s Hellabrew, the first beer we created. Watch the process unfold in the videos below.

While at the New Jersey Horror Con and Film Festival, our founder Andrew Divoff made this announcement thanking Three Marm’s partners and those who have become the first members of the 333 Friends program. Although the 333s have not officially been launched due to the fact we are currently finalizing our swag bag and other perks, we are grateful to those who have taken an early leap of faith and purchased a share of this membership. Your purchases have helped us fund the swag that each of the 333 Friends will receive, and also help us defray our start-up expenses, including equipment, rent and utilities at our facility.
