If this is your first visit to a wine/beer making facility let me introduce you to one of the best kept secrets! Wine and beer making has been done for thousands of years, predating Egyptian times. With huge leaps in science in the last 50 years microbiologists have learned a great deal in commercial wine and beer making and still are learning about the chemistry of fermentation and aging. The science has allowed suppliers to package a premium grape juices with little loss of quality and offer it into a professional package to retailers like Brew Time. These suppliers are the same suppliers that retail a large percentage of the wine in the LCBO and wine shops
We offer the facilities to blend, ferment, age, filter, and package your favourite beverages. This is all done with no prior experience, knowledge and with guaranteed results. The best part is, it's going to save you 50% or more over retail. How is this possible? First of all 95% of the taxes you pay at the LCBO, wine shop or The Beer Store you don't pay at Brew Time. Government regulations allow you to produce your own wine or beer for personal consumption, virtually tax free at Brew Time. Secondly because you are packaging your product with your own bottles (which you will be refilling over and over) and taking directly home for your enjoyment, you are eliminating such expenses such as bottling lines, new bottles every purchase, and shipping/warehouse costs It's all about attitude and atmosphere! At Brew Time we always strive to maintain a positive work environment, we want to make sure everyone leaves with a smile! You can make wine at several different places with good results. But we offer more than that! ? We offer a clean and curtious work place. ? We offer a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee. Even if there is no "fault" with the product and it's just not what you expected, we will offer to make a new batch or refund your money! That's how much we stand behind our product! ?

We offer a graduate winemaker of Niagara College Winemaking and Viticulture Program, he is also an active member of the Amateur Winemakers of Ontario and a winner of multiple provincial and national awards for wine and beer, Victor Van Beek (part owner). ? We offer state of the art bottling equipment to ensure a quality final product, such as bottle sanitizing machines, vaccum filling stations (gentler on your wine), counter pressure fillers (for beer protecting against oxygen), automatic corkers and cork types, and offer personalized wine labels. ?
