Beverage Artisan was established in 2011 a little after the owner, Doug, retired from the Menomonie School District. Doug has been a home brewer/winemaker for over 30 years. His son, another homebrewer, convinced him there was a need for a local homebrew shop in Menomonie. Thus, the idea of Beverage Artisan was born.
Beverage Artisan is a small local store with limited hours. However, it is my goal to make home beverage making accessible and successful - especially to those who are first time fermenters, experimenters or those who create beverages on a small scale.
Friendly, helpful and personal service is what I strive for in this one-person shop. Beverage Artisan succeeds or fails by your patronage, support, reviews and word-of-mouth sharing. Please talk to me (Doug) if you have anything less than a positive experience - if possible, I will try to correct the issue.
Beverage Artisan is not an online store. We can special order many items and give you a fair price if you are willing to wait in our order cycle. We also give personal service - what some of the bigger homebrew stores have got away from.
When not at Beverage Artisan I am traveling, trailering, kayak fishing, geocaching, making wine or beer and playing bass in a local band, The Cutaways.
I am retired but take this store serious. Please, always check the calendar for times when I close the shop. I try to give fair warning when I will be closed. Likewise, if there's a wine or beer emergency, I have been known to open up special for people. Thank you for your support. Cheers!
