Recipe of the Month

This little recipe for a brown ale is straightforward and will be ready for fall enjoyment. Often when moving to all-grain we never look back, but this partial mash recipe will give you the rich malty beer you crave, allowing you to accept and maybe even welcome the colder weather to come. Also, it bears a resemblance to a certain beloved brown ale in the shop. You could say its a good one to take on a hike on a mountain.

Did You Know?

We have over 40 types of grains have hit the shelves – base grains, caramel/crystal, specialty – We have what you need to go from grain to glass! We can mill the grain on-site, and please, if there is any type of grain that you love to brew with and we don’t have it, let us know!

We have hops for the discerning hop-head, from US classics like the 3 C’s, El Dorado, and Mosaic, to UK hops like Fuggles, EKG, and Tettnang, to the fruity hops of NZ and AU like Green Bullet, Pacific Jade, Kohatu, and Galaxy and many more.

We also have everything to get you started with wine and cider making! From specific yeast strains to fermenting equipment and a few varieties of wine kits.

We Can Take Orders!

Our distributors carry many more wine making kits, as well as kegging supplies, bigger pots and kettles, burners, chillers, etc. than what we have in-store. Let us know what your looking for and we might have access to it.
