Artisanal Wine

We start with the freshest authentic juice available. From there we design your own perfect wine by adding flavors such as spices, fruit or woodchips, as your palette dictates.

30 750-mL bottles

Fresh Pressed Cider

Using our very own press, you fresh press apples to produce your own cider. Then based on your preferences, we create a cider that is either still or sparkling, dry or sweet, spiced or not and anything in between!

Freshman Orientation

Beginner's Package


Everyone has to start (or restart) somewhere!  For someone who is new to the hobby or that has few batches on your resume, this package is suited for you.  Gain the knowledge and help from Homebrew U during your session. 

The Undergraduate

You provide your own Clean Bottles


This package has the same amenities as the Freshmen package minus the bottles.  Since you have been brewing for a while and have amassed your credits (bottles or kegs) this package offers you to bring your own clean bottles or fill your own clean Cornelius (soda) Keg(s) at packaging time.
