In 1974 when this business opened up, homebrewers and winemakers were far and few between, primarily because there wasn't high quality small batch supplies. But over the last 40 years, things have changed drastically. 40 years ago there was one hop variety, Cascade. Now, we carry about 50 varieties! 40 years ago there were maybe 12 varieties of wine concentrates, now we have over 40! 40 years ago there were only 116 breweries across the states, now there are 3,000+. As Dylan says, "Oh the times they are a-changin'."
The Winemaker's Shop supplies only the finest quality malts, hops, yeasts and wine-grape concentrates to fulfill your home wine and beer-making needs.
