William and Collette bring twelve years of combined brewing experience coupled with a passion for experimentation to Make Yer Own Wine & Beer.
With recent changes to regulations allowing in-store brewing, William and Collette saw the chance to do something new in the area – offer people a chance to experience the joys of brewing without any expensive start-up costs or intimidating technical hurdles. With their ability to supply the facilities for customers to brew their own wine or beer, a whole range of people have been introduced to the experience of brewing for the very first time. It’s these interactions that they most treasure – helping customers pick the best kit for their tastes, guiding them through their brewing experience, and hearing the stories of how well-received the fruits of their labours was received.
Although William has a fondness for German wines and Collette particularly enjoys fruit wines, you can find the pair to be a font of information on brewing in general and always willing to provide advice. The couple enjoy the flow of customers throughout the day – an eclectic group ranging from university students to retirees, professionals to hobbyists. Some might only stop by in preparation for special occasions while others are in weekly as they work on their latest batch. All are welcome.
