Dear %displayname%,

Have you heard the news?  The price of commercially produced beer has taken a huge jump.  The curent cost per dozen 341 mL bottles of domestic beer is now at $22.49.  Imported beers like Corona are now $25.48 per 12 x 330 mL and some specialty beers like Garrison’s are now over $4.00 per 500 mL bottle.  (HERE is the current beer price list at NBLC.)

This is outrageous!  There really is no better time to consider making your own beer.  We offer a full line of Premium Micro Brewed Quality beers that are very simple and affordable to make, and if you choose to have your beer made in our store, we’ll even guarantee the results.  Once you taste the quality of these beers, you’ll never go back to the over priced commercial brands.

All Festa Brew beer kits yield 23 Liters/6 Gallons and are ready for consumption in only 4 weeks.  So what are you waiting for?  You have nothing to lose, and you’ll save over $50.00 compared to purchasing the same volume of commercial beer (even more savings if you make your own at home).  Click HERE to see our full line of Premium Quality Festa Brew Beers.

New Products

Vintners Reserve

We are pleased to announce the arrival of two outstanding new VINTNERS RESERVE products. AVAILABLE NOW!

Diablo Rojo – Dark purple in colour with a nose of blackberry jam melded with creamy vanilla aromas and a touch of tobacco. Rich in the mouth, with gently smooth tannins and rich, ripe plum and berry flavours. The finish is long and fruit-filled, with the perfect amount of toasty oak. This off dry red wine is perfect for enjoying right away, delicious with robust foods and excellent all on its own.

Ángel Blanco – An easy drinking, well-rounded white wine, with appealing fruit flavours and aromas. Rich and boldly fruity from a multi-vinifera blend that delivers up a floral aromatic nose and a fine mix of peachy, honey, pineapple fruit finishing with a perfect balance of acidity and fruitiness. Serve well chilled before dinner or pair it up with spicy foods to tame the heat and compliment your cuisine.

$79.95 take home, $149.99 made in-store.

“We recently moved to St. Andrews. As a welcoming gift, our neighbours gave us a bottle of wine that they made at DiVine Wines. We were so impressed that we went to DiVine Wines to start some wine for ourselves. That’s when we discovered that they offer Beer Kits made on-premise too. So we decided to try some beer as well. We chose the Blonde Lager and the Brown Ale. After two weeks, they were ready for bottling. We let them sit for two more weeks, then tried some of each. They were both incredibly rich, flavourful and refreshing. Now we are working on a third batch, the Continental Pilsner. DiVine Wines is just a treasure. Trevor and Dave make everything fun and easy. The quality is amazing and it is all so affordable. I used to work for a winery, but I never thought I could make such good wine so easily. And now we can make our own beer, too. Our only problem? Should we have wine or beer tonight!”
