Our Beers

Ever thought about making your own beer. It's fun, tastes as good as any craft brewed beer and is very affordable.

We have a full line-up of beers, from an American Lager up to an Irish Stout and all the styles that fall in between, including an increasing number of seasonal specials. 
Our beers can be customized in various ways - dry hopped, different yeast, carbonation level, % alcohol - so we can truly match everyones palate.

The brew process in our store takes about 2 weeks, after bottling the beer it takes another 2-4 weeks of conditioning the beer in the bottle before it is ready to drink. Minimum batchsize is 5.5 dozen (66 botlles). 

We carry beer kits from; U-DO brewery (beers listed below), Muntons and Coopers.

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
