The Vineyard Newsletter - August 2010
The Vineyard

27 Years ago ...

Well maybe it was not quite that primitive but....

We started The Vineyard in 1983 selling mostly beer making supplies. In the early nineties the trend swung almost totally around and wine making became 90% of our business.

But now we are seeing some real growth in beer making interest.  More and more people are starting to brew their own beer. 

The Vineyard still leads the retail market in providing ingredients for the home brewer. We are the ONLY retailer left in Calgary who stocks and sells grains, hops and liquid yeast. We also stock a great variety of premium beer kits such as Barons, Brew House and Festa Brew. We started turning beginners into experts and we continue to service the home brew community.


To celebrate our 27 years of selling home brew supplies we are have a HUGE Summer Sale of HOP Pellets.

We have been able to reduce our hop pellet price by $1 per ounce. That is a 29% savings on all the hops in stock!! We have over 16 varieties in stock now!

We also will sell ½ pound (8oz) bags of selected varieties for $16 – that’s a 43% saving!!

Please call the South Store 403.258.1580 for availability and to place your ½ pound hop order.
