Art of Brewing / u-brew

A well established and thriving u-brew, located in Nelson BC. It is the oldest and largest brew store in the Kootenays (est. 1986) and under current ownership for over 20 years. Art of Brewing is well known, profitable and has a loyal customer base. Pandemic and recession proof. Prime downtown location with great visibility and customer parking.

Our store is fully equipped, offering in-store wine & beer making, a wide selection of wine and beer kits, brew supplies, equipment and a bulk section with malted grains, hops and yeast. The leased space is a mix of retail, production, bottling area, storage, utility room and washroom. Back door access with private parking.

This is an excellent business opportunity for someone with an affinity for wine, beer and fermenting. It is a fast-paced and enjoyable work environment where customers come to get supplies, make wine & beer, and ask questions. Equally important, it is a place where ideas are shared with like minded people. \ Comprehensive training and support provided before and after the sale.

Dear valued customers

Dear Art of Brewing Customers,

We regret to inform you that our store is currently closed until further notice due to a recent fire incident. On February 25, the Nelson Fire Department quickly took control of the fire that was discovered in the early morning, and fortunately, nobody was hurt

We are deeply saddened by this unfortunate event and witnessing our store and life's work go up in smoke has been devastating for us. At present, we are beginning the insurance process and assessing the damage.

We understand that customers who have orders with us currently on site are concerned. Please know that we have not forgotten about you, but it will take some time to sort things out. We will contact you as soon as we have more information.

We are grateful for the heartwarming support we have received from the community, customers, friends, and family, which is keeping us on our feet at this difficult time. However, we are currently overwhelmed with communications, and it may not be possible to respond to all individual messages.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

Regards, Breg & Maarten
