Westside u Brew Hops and Vines was established in 1992 by Gord and Deb Craig. It was the first brew/vin on premise started on the westside of the bridge. Quickly building a solid relationship with westside customers we became known as the place to make your own beer or wine.
We specialize in helping our customers make wine from kits supplied by Winexpert ( Andrew Peller Wines). One out of five bottles consumed in Canada each year is consumer made and when you experience the quality of wines you make with us it is easy to see why. To produce a quality wine you need to start with a quality kit. Over the years we have tried wine kits from the major manufacturers and have yet to find one that offers the consistent, high quality of Winexpert Kits.
We have automatic corkers and easy systems to make your bottling process simple, easy, and fun.
Westside U brew is the only facility on the westside and one of three brew on premise that offer traditional copper kettle brewing from bulk ingredients not kits. Two temperature controlled rooms ensure your beer ferments and ages at the perfect temperature. Our quality filtration and forced carbonation create a clear sparkling beer you will be proud to share. You can package your beer in plastic or twist off glass bottles or even kegs for those that have a keg system at home. We are proud to offer you a wide range of different recipes to choose from.
We also now carry On the Rocks cider. This product was developed in England and comes to us from a supplier in Vancouver. The ciders are available in apple, pear, Guava, Raspberry Lime, and mixed berry.
We are conveniently located in the Crockford Mall beside the Restore/Habitat for Humanity at the one end and the Petro Canada at the other.
