There is an old saying that ‘it takes a lot of beer to make great wines…’ Well, we can attest to it! After nearly 25 years of home brewing to quench our thirst we decided to go-pro. The stack of recipes are too many to count. These recipes and their styling are often layered with a culinary perspective along with visions of a cold frothy beer at the end of a long day making wine. In 2012 we began to turn this passion into a reality. We reached out to the community around us, the barrel suppliers, equipment manufacturers and our local farmers to literally test the waters. We pulled barrels and equipment from our wineries and began building a custom brewing system. In 2014 we found a small space in St Helena, received a use permit and began creating our beers…Wow! How did that happen? A lot of sweat, determination and of course help from our family, friends and colleagues… Did we say wine! Yes, it’s only fitting that ‘it takes a lot of wine to make great beer!
