ST. CATHARINES, ON, April 16, 2014 /CNW/ - Celebrate the unofficial start of summer and Canada's beer drinking season by making your own premium craft beer for the May 2-4 weekend. Now available in Canada, Brewer's Best® offers a true craft beer making experience at-home that produces a great tasting beer. This all-malt craft beer ingredient kit offers the freshest of ingredients, true-to-style authentic craft beer recipes, and the ability to create an exceptional craft beer comparable to commercial craft brands - all at an affordable price.

"Craft beer has exploded in popularity in Canada, and whether you're a novice or experienced beer maker there is a real sense of pride in being able to create your own signature beer with Brewer's Best.  And, it's fun!" said Ali Stasiuk, beer maker and marketer with Global Vintners Inc., the Canadian distributor of Brewer's Best.

Brewer's Best offers 21 different styles of ingredient kits ranging from the popular India Pale Ale (IPA) to a dark, luscious Irish Stout. Brewer's Best also offers the only Gluten-Free beer kit in Canada. All Brewer's Best craft beer recipes are true to style meaning they produce crisp hops and bright, rich flavours expected in a quality craft beer.

The first day of the brewing process takes a couple of hours.  "It's very social," added Stasiuk.  "Whenever my husband and I make it friends always show up to take part in the process."  The beer then sits for a couple of weeks prior to bottling and then another few weeks depending on the style to allow for carbonation.  Each batch of Brewer's Best produces up to 48 bottles of craft beer at a cost of approximately $1 per bottle.

Complete with easy-to-follow instructions, Brewer's Best is perfect for the beginner yet challenging enough for the beer enthusiast. Each Brewer's Best ingredient kit retails for approximately $50 and includes premium, fresh ingredients such as malt extract, hops, specialty grains, yeast, as well as spices and flavourings unique to each style.

For new brewers, the Brewer's Best Equipment Starter Kit is a one-time investment of approximately $70 and includes everything required to get your beer adventure started.
