Reminder Emails Coming to an End
May is the last month that you will be receiving automated email reminders from Brew Check.  Unfortunately, this service has been discontinued by the software creator. While we figure out another option, you can look forward to our phone calls like back in the day! If you do not hear from us by your approximate ready date (in yellow) on your invoice, please give us a shout!

MacDay Label Changes
The company we purchase our bottle labels from is going through some changes. The cost of clear label production is becoming prohibitive and they are looking to convert some of the label designs to the white film background in late fall of 2022. They are inviting our clients to help choose designs…If you copy and paste the following address into your browser you can choose your favourites!

Bottling Day Specials!
Do you want to order something that’s not on sale?
The same day you bottle, receive $10 OFF any regular priced item or a FREE bottle of Kimberley Wine Vinegar, regular $14.99.

The monthly vinegar special in March was so well received, we thought we would do it every month! Of course, we will continue to have our Monthly Specials for you to choose from as well!

Please note we will be closed on Saturday May 21 for the Victoria Day Long Weekend!

Have a FABULOUS day!
We are all looking forward to seeing you soon!
