The best place in Winnipeg to buy beer making equipment and ingredients. Most other brew outfits in town only sell pre-packaged kits or specialize in wine making. That being said, it could still use a better selection of some items, especially liquid yeast. The last time I was there, they only had two different kinds of liquid ale yeast available. I guess they only re-order when the stock gets VERY low. All of the staff are friendly, but the owner is the only one who REALLY knows his stuff when it comes to making beer. One staff member who I spoke to claimed to have made lots of different kinds of beer, and claimed to know all about beer, but didnít seem to know what a California Common was? Another experienced brewer on staff would be helpful.
