This was our epic little booth at the Blues and Brews event held at Sandia Casino as part of the Albuquerque Beer Week. We were at the intersection of Santa Fe and Marble's table's. We had a blast, so much good beer to be had, and a lot of positive feedback on our own offerings. We look forward to do doing this again!

The final table at the EBC(Enchanted Brewing Competition). This is where the final judging takes place for best in show, and best in over all style(lager, ale,...) are determined, lots of discussion and argument as to who made the best beer. It was great fun!

Howdy Folk!
Next to last minute reminder!
Big Brew Day is this Saturday, remember to get registered on the Dukes of Ale website!! We have at least 4 people guaranteed so far. And remember, even if you aren't able to brew we would still enjoy a crowd and some of us an audience. So come on down regardless and catch the sites, smells and brews. We have one volunteer who is going to give a demonstration on decoction!

04/15/2014

Hey guys!
Just a friendly reminder that our next brew demonstration is coming up this Saturday the 19th. We'll be brewing the stout we're taking to the Blues and Brews festival. Come on down, I'm getting started by 11 a.m. will be finished around close of shop at 5:30 p.m.

Hi all! I'm finally posting some pics of my fabulous trip through Burgandy wine country. I rode bikes, ate, drank & toured as many wineries/cellars as possible. It is a gorgeous region with wine grapes as far as the eye can see. The variety of wines created from just the two styles of grapes grown there is astonishing. We arrived just after harvesting time, so fermentation was in full swing. Each ancient village had a strong, pungent smell of wine being made. I met vintners who had oenology in their lineage since the 1400's. I was in heaven.

10/05/2013

Happy Saturday!! We are heating up the water for our all-grain brewing demo today. If you want to see how mashing is done stop on by, we'd love to see you. Cheers!

Harvest Time!

Since a few weeks have passed without a batch of beer bein' brewed we thought of getting an all grain batch under our belt and kick'n off autumn right. This coming Saturday we'll be getting some unclaimed grains and some frankenstein bags(from flushing our grain mill) out of the shop and into the pot. So mark your calendars folks!

Good afternoon folks!

Wanted to put out a reminder to all those interested in our wine pressing demonstration that we'll be beginning at 11:00 a.m. and the class will run ~2-3 hours.

As always our great deals, quality products, and amazing service will be at your disposal!

08/27/2013

Hello,
This Saturday, August 31st, we will be teaching a wine class here at the shop. Starting at 11 we will be demonstrating how to make wine from white grapes, though the same methods will apply to almost any fruits. We will do a pressing of fresh fruit as well as show you how to add all the natural chemicals, take a hydrometer reading and how to pitch yeast. 10 one gallon jugs are available for participants to take home the must & ferment the wine themselves. Please RSVP by email or phone call to 505-883-0000. The class will be $10/household & probably last a couple hours. Be sure to come with questions. Cheers, Michelle @ Victor's Grape Arbor

We have some hold over boxes of concentrated grape juice for wine making. They are still good, likely need a new bag of yeast, but otherwise good to go. Some time last year the company switched logo's and we're trying to update our inventory. We're running them on special for $50/ea. down from $84/ea. The juice is of the highest quality, titrated and balanced, so no need for any extra nutrient, acid blend or other additives. We have 4 of them total. Get yours while you can!!

08/20/2013

Good afternoon gang!

Wanted to give an advanced heads-up for our next demonstration. We're taking a break from brewing beer and switching to wine!! Saturday the 31st of August we'll be giving a hands on demonstration of pressing and fermenting grapes! Please call, e-mail, or respond with a message here on face book if you intend on coming, so we can plan how much fruit to provide.

08/13/2013

Another Tuesday morning, and another special deal!

We just got in used 1 gallon handle jugs(clear)! We're selling them for 2$ a piece!

Also for those more visually attuned we posted a couple pictures from last week's bottle check in for the State Fair Beer Competition. Got a picture of all of us hard at work and a picture of one small section of all the beers we categorized!

Things got a little cramped with so many of us but we managed to get through it!
