What is U-Brew?
No, it’s not a bunch of yeasty bottles exploding in your uncle’s closet!
The key concept with U-Brew is that we are making your perfect batch together – by being hands-on with the process, each batch we make together is YOURS. Since the beer, wine, or cider we are helping you brew is for your own individual use, you avoid commercial liquor taxes. Our products are generally less than half the cost of their liquor store equivalents.
Our beer production equipment is similar to any other small craft brewery in town and our brewing process is just the same. Our all-grain brewing system and ferment-on-premises licensing let us do the hard part for you – we take care of the mashing, boiling, filtering, and carbonating. We make the wort, then it goes into a fermenter just for you. Your choice of yeast is all it takes to kick it off.

Our wine offerings start with kits blended by our partners, RJ Spagnols and WineXpert. The kits come to us with the grapes professionally selected and blended to deliver consistently delicious wines. We handle all of the racking, fining, and filtering steps to finish off your perfect batch ready for bottling.

We have both fresh local and kit ciders available. Our premium cider starts with fresh BC apple juice pressed in Chilliwack, BC, and will finish quite dry – we can backsweeten if desired, however, most of our customers tend to prefer a dry clean cider. If a sweeter cider is more up your alley (think of a familiar local company who sells cider in 2L plastic bottles) then our Black Rock or Crafted cider kits may be more to your liking.

Our Current Specials
Our craft beer offerings are all made from scratch right here in our store. Our commitment to quality and craftsmanship ensures that every sip is a testament to our passion for brewing.
Our beer batches yield approximately 48L after fermentation, allowing you to savor the goodness of your favorite styles. From the rich complexity of Ales, IPAs, and Stouts to the refreshing crispness of Lagers and Pilsners, we have a wide range of options to cater to every beer lover’s palate.
If you prefer the smoothness and delicate nuances of Lagers and Pilsners, patience is key. These styles require a bit more time to develop their characteristic profiles, typically taking around 4-5 weeks from start to finish. But trust us, the wait will be well worth it as you savor the clean and crisp notes that define these classic beer styles.
Experience the craftsmanship, artistry, and dedication that go into every batch of our craft beers. Join us on this flavorful journey and discover a whole new world of brewing excellence.
