WELCOME TO THE HOME VINTNER FAMILY! ON TAP - OIL & VINEGAR

 

We are very excited to announce our new partner location in OKOTOKS, On Tap - Oil & Vinegar. Juliana has a beautiful shop at 22 McRae Street in the Olde Towne section of Okotoks on the main street. 403-995-1982 We have started to stock Wine and Beer kits and supplies at this location. Please wander over to meet and welcome Juliana, get your file updated, and have access to premium kits closer to home! Make sure to let Juliana know what you like to buy, as she works to tailor her stock to the local market.  We had a great time setting up at this location, already thinking of food pairings to come with delicious gourmet specialty oils and vinegars.

 THE HOME VINTNER IS HAVING A CONTEST!

 

See our contest flyer on the specials page of our website here....

One of the great things about our Barons Beer kits is the quality of the concentrated wort base. This has given us the ability to pair the kits with specialty yeasts and add-on recipes to achieve a large variety of craft beer styles. What Craft beer would you like to have available that we have not put out a recipe add-pack for yet? Start crafting! Take careful notes of your recipe, and enter!

MONTHLY SPECIALS! 

WORLD VINEYARD - 5$ OFF

VINTNERS RESERVE - 5$ OFF

BEER SPECIAL - BARONS BROWN ALE  $4 OFF

Deep chestnut coloured ale with a full-bodied, roasted malt flavour. Precisely balanced with hop flavour, aroma, and maltiness to bring out this beer's true character! This brown ale is more full bodied and flavorful than lagers in general, thereby providing a nice autumn or winter drink as well as many food pairing possibilities. With its smooth mouth feel, lightly roasted sweet malt taste, and subtle nutty butteryness Baron's Brown Ale is a great fall favourite!

Try pairing this kit with our Hemp Nut Brown Ale Style Recipe Pack + Thames Valley Ale or Denny's Fave 50 Wyeast. See the write up on this fabulous beer in the Add-Pack section.

Try this kit with our  Stout add on package with Wyeast 1098 British Ale or 1084 Irish Ale. This combination produces a complex and award winning Stout, that will age and continue to improve in the bottle for several years. This kit also pairs well with Pat's Cherry Porter add on package with Wyeast 1084 Irish Ale. A fantastic rich and sensual dark porter reminiscent of Black Forest Cake. This recipe will also continue to improve and develop with age.
