The Art of Brewing has moved to a new location?


After 33 years of brewing in the classic Coke and Gas building on

Railway Street, Art of Brewing has found a new home. As of November 19, the business will be fully operational in West Arm Plaza, 630 Front Street, Nelson.

“It has taken us a long time, with a lot of uncertainties,” say longtime owners Breg and Maarten Lammers. “Finding an appropriate building for our operation that also has parking for our customers was a challenge, but we’re happy to announce that we’ve done it, and will be taking over the Wine Kitz store in the West Arm Plaza.”

John and Ineke Kortram, the owners of Wine Kitz Nelson, have been on the outlook for an experienced and passionate successor. “We think that Maarten and Breg fit that bill nicely,'' says Ineke. “We’re pleased that the business will continue to thrive.”

All of the services previously available at the Art of Brewing will remain intact:

customized wine, beer, and prosecco, ingredients and equipment for the home brewer, and all the brewing expertise and advice that customers have come to depend upon for the past three decades. It will also be the new home for our delicious handcrafted chocolates and cakes from the Art of Chocolate.

“We’re thrilled to combine our two businesses, and meet the needs of customers from both Art of Brewing and Wine Kitz,” Maarten continues. “West Arm Plaza will be a new space for us, but we’ll make it our own and continue to provide our customers with the same top notch experience. In fact, we plan to offer them even more.”

Prosecco anybody, or maybe...?
