About The SOMA Brewing Company:
The SOMA Brewing Company was started by SOMA residents Farnaz and Adam Heydt and Bianca and Chris Froelich. Chris, an avid homebrewer and Adam a lover of craft beer decided to pursue their passion. Over drinks at the neighborhood pub, the idea was born of the families’ desire to keep it local. Both families live and are very active in the South Orange – Maplewood area, and, between the two families, have 5 children in the public school district. This made the idea of making craft beer for locals by locals an easy decision. From their families, homes, blocks, and neighborhoods, The SOMA Brewing Company hopes that you will drink local!
