Introducing our new Redwood Chocolate Ale, made with 500 gm of chocolate malt and our Barons Redwood Ale - recipe available in our stores. The final product is an extremely dark, rich ale. Redwood has become my favorite because it's snappy and robust. The chocolate creates a great background flavour that, in it's own way is a bit mellow. I may be biased here because I am a chocoholic but this ale tends to leave a very characteristic taste that lingers on long after the last mouthful - from Rob the creator of this great beer!

In September I moved into a house with two roommates and a lot of extra space. The carboys, empty bottles, wine rack, corks, and the "art of wine and beer making" certificate of attendance moved in soon after. My roommate Scott always wanted to make his own beer, and our house and its big basement provided the perfect opportunity. Scott loves beer and he loves saving money, so homebrew made sense. I was in complete support of Scott's new hobby. Who doesn't love cheap beer?

Ask The Vintner
With our high altitude here are a few tips to assist you when making great wine. I have outlined a few additional ideas for each winemaking step.
With 18 years of experience in this business I have seen many gimmicks and stores with bad advice come and go. I think it is time to speak up. This month I will address beer making. When I do a wine & beer making class I always ask how many people have had really bad home made beer. With almost every hand raised we then teach how to make excellent hand crafted beer. We never sell beer kits in a can with the classic cidery home made taste. No short cuts. No expensive beer machines (good luck in trying to make one work). The next time you see a beer making machine in a mall unscrew the lid and sniff the plastic odour. The overall reputation of "Home Made Beer" is poor because of the bottom end of the brewers market. The Home Vintner only focuses on the quality market. When you can make such great world style beers why should you settle for anything less?
