Sometimes doing something yourself is more rewarding, whether you're brewing your own beer or licking your baby's forehead clean like a lioness. Polish your craft with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options

Experiences include all bottles and bottling.
Students learn to brew and bottle their own wine and cider with RJS Craft Winemaking wine kits, taking home a clinking bounty of bottles at the end of the experience. The premium wine kit includes region-specific varietal grape juice and takes six weeks to complete, while the standard kit includes blended varietals and takes four weeks. The premium wine kit yields 30 bottles, while the wine-and-cider experience yields 30 bottles of wine and 60 bottles of cider. Neither of the wines require aging (though the premium kit's wine is more suited to it), but patrons can choose to age their new private stashes or give them away as handmade holiday gifts.
Novice and experienced brewers alike can build their winemaking knowledge base at Bayleys Brews, where instructors show students how to get the most out of red, white, and specialty wine kits and beer kits. Customers can peruse red or white kits that take from four to eight weeks to complete and range from standard varietals to luxurious vineyard-specific creations. Beer-brewing kits fulfill dreams of hosting a re-creation of Cheers in your basement forever by supplying materials for barrels of stout, cream ale, or Canadian lager. Brewers are on staff at all times to guide decision-making and explain the nuances of each kit to their customers.
