Last Call for Juice & Grapes
Holy Crap!
Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day
Wine, Cheese & Beer Classes

This is our last call of the season for procrastinating winemakers! Our final shipment of premium grapes from Lake County just arrived, plus we have very limited quantities of extra grapes from Washington State if you act quickly. We also have a few buckets of white juice left from both California and Italy. Call now for pricing and availability.

We just received (like a ½ hour ago) our last shipment from Lake County CA grapes and imagine our surprise to find out we have an extra bin of Syrah. Total weight is 887 pounds and they look great! Usually $1.00 a pound we are authorized to sell them at 0.75 per pound. That’s 60 to 65 gallons of premium wine for $665.25. Premium wine at less than central valley prices!

Saturday, November 6
Don’t forget to join the Lehigh Valley Homebrewers this Saturday for a Big Brew at Chris Becker’s Family Farm (call the Bethlehem store for directions). For your education and viewing entertainment, the club will be brewing a traditional steinbeer using the ancient method of adding superheated rocks to bring the wort to a boil. You can brew your favorite recipe, while sharing homebrews and enjoying lunch from the grill. And of course you can bring a friend, and teach him or her to homebrew! Check out our website and the club’s website for more details about the event:
