A store dedicated to homebrewing and winemaking, Barley & Vine provides all the materials for its classes from its stock. The beer-brewing class provides hands-on learning in an outdoor setting, so they encourage students to dress for the weather. Cheese-making classes focus on a the basics of making a different kind of cheese each month, and each class gets to taste its creation at the end of the session. The winemaking classes make use of one of the store’s prepackaged kits, ultimately producing 6 gallons of wine.
Barley & Vine
Dan Vallish has been homebrewing beer as a hobby for more than 20 years. During that time, he often envisioned the perfect place to shop for his supplies. It would have all the specialty grains one could want, an onsite milling facility, and fresh yeast and hops. Ultimately, he made that vision a reality, founding Barley & Vine to be a one-stop shop for beer lovers and beer brewers, complete with a 27-tap growler bar with 26 craft beers and a cider on tap at all times.
Of course, Dan offers more than just disparate beer-brewing supplies. He teaches classes on the subject, or provides cloning kits for beginners, which contain all the ingredients to mimic Irish stouts or American pale ales. He also provides winemaking kits, which produce 6 gallons of fermented libations at a time. He even offers instructions and supplies to make cheese, so that his customers can pair their homemade beverages with the perfect snack.
