Bev Art Brewer & Wine Maker Coupons and Deals
Why You Should Go: You think outside the box; as in the wine box chilling in your fridge. And while spending time sipping, swirling, and discussing the oakiness of your cartoned collection may be enough to render you a master wino in some circles, it's time for the next step in your education; head to Beverage Art Brewer & Winemaker Supply for a wine-making class for two. Why You’ll Love It: Taking your love of wine one step further, this two-session class has you making 28 to 30 bottles of excellent wine. Following step-by-step procedures after a short learning session, you’ll craft a varietal wine such as Chardonnay or estate-grown Cabernet as you’re overseen by their expert winemakers. They’ll even bottle, cork and custom-label your wine once it’s done fermenting in their temp-controlled cellar. What You’ll Learn: After two sessions (first is two hours; second is one to two hours), you’ll be ready to start a vineyard empire – or at least impress oenophile friends. Learn winemaking approaches and techniques, tasting and appreciation, and basics of quality wine making. Then you’ll move on to hands-on winemaking using 6-gallon vats, learning to balance and stabilize your wine, adjust the tannins and sugar levels, and bottle and label the final product. Salut!
Though you're used to buying wine by the bottle, this offer from Bev Art Brewer & Winemaker Supply will have you making vino by the gallon instead: • $49 ($99 value) for a wine-making class for one/two people making the same batch • Two-session, hands-on experience guides you through making 20+ bottles of wine • Learn about wine aging, cellaring, and bottling • Vint a six-gallon vat, adjust sugar levels, and balance your vino • Feel free to bring your own cleaned, unlabeled bottles • Cost of ingredients is not included
There are two options for this hands-on experience, and who doesn’t want to get hands-on when we’re talking Valentine’s Day. Whether it’s beer or wine that you prefer, Bev Art has it covered. It all starts with a gourmet meal specially prepared by the Harvest Grill executive chefs of the Downtown Chicago Marriott, and each course is expertly paired with exquisite wines/micro-brewed beers to complement. Then the pros at Bev Art teach you and your sweetheart how to make your own craft beverages, providing all the ingredients, bottles, corks and caps, and labels. For wine-lovers, there’ll even be a grape-stomping contest! Then Bev Art will oversee the fermenting process and a few weeks later (or 10 weeks for wine) you return for a special bottling session either at the Marriott again or at Bev Art’s location on S. Western Ave. When all is said and done, you walk out with a batch of your very own 25 to 30 bottles of wine or 45 to 50 bottles of beer, made by your hands to your specific liking. You’ll even get take-home wine glasses or pub glasses to enjoy together. It will be a Valentine’s Day that extends beyond just the single day, and one you won’t soon forget, as you’ll enjoy the fruits of your labor for months to come. Talk about your labor of love! HomeRun Tip: The custom menus that the Harvest Grill chefs have cooked up are ridiculous!
