The Best Beer You Can Brew!

November 26, 2013

Do you drink beer? There have been huge strides in increasing the quality of beer kits, and now with our Paddock Wood Brewing Company Ready Brew beer kits, it is even easier to make a high quality brew just like the ones produced at the brewery.

The Paddock Wood Brewing Co. is located in Saskatoon and is an award winning craft micro-brewery. Steve Cavan- Paddock Wood’s founder and Brew Master started as a home brewer! Click here to see a tour of the the brewery!

What is so special about this kit, you ask? There are many features that set this kit above the rest, first and foremost being quality. Sold Brown Aleexclusively at Wine Sense, Ready Brew kits are made in the same fashion as any craft beer you purchase at a beer store or liquor mart. Paddock Wood uses 100% fresh grains and hops to create an all grain wort with tremendous body and flavour. Each kit has gone through a 90 minute boil with these fresh grains and hops to produce the finest quality wort available.

This is not a concentrate, there has been no removal of water during any part of the process so there is no need to top up. Wyeast Liquid Yeast is included with each kit and helps to give exceptional depth and flavour to your beer. The beer will clear nicely using a single stage fermentation, so there is no need for a carboy and no racking required. The yeast also creates a firm pack after fermentation, making cleanup a breeze! We have 10 styles available to suit various palettes, including an American Pale Ale, Carib Lager, Cream Ale, German Koelsch and Spitfire English Ale and more!

 The Carib Lager and German Koelsch are the lightest of the group. If you are looking for a crisp, clean tasting beer with little to no hops, these would be your best choice. If you like a bit more hops in your beer the Spitfire English Ale is a classic English Ale with a nice balance of hops. If you like a more assertive hoppy flavour like I do, the American Pale Ale is the way to go. For those who prefer a light balance of malt and hops, the creamy texture of the Cream Ale is a pleasure to drink!

So go ahead and treat yourself to a Paddock Wood Brewing Co. Ready Brew kit, at just 95 cents a bottle you are not only saving money but getting huge bang for your buck. Try it, I promise you will not be disappointed!
