FAQ (Beer)

How long does it take to brew?

Your initial Brew Session will take about 3 hrs, fermentation will then take about 2 to 3 weeks, you will then return for your Bottling Session which will take about 1 hour.

Is it legal to make my own beer?Yes, however the Alcoholic Beverage Control of New Jersey requires that everyone that brews beer for private consumption must obtain a permit.  The cost is $15.00 and is good for a year.  We will file the required information for you during your first visit.

What is the average cost to make beer?Most beer styles cost between $195 to $230 per batch

What is the batch size of my Micro-brew beer?

Each batch yields approx. 5 cases (24 bottles per case) of 12 oz . bottles of beer. 

Why is it better to brew onsite at Brew-U?

Grape Beginnings is a Complete Micro Brewery on a Micro Scale. In addition to the best materials, ingredients and technology available onsite, the following benefits are realized:

  • NO Beer Kits
  • NO Chemicals
  • NO Cleanup
  • 100% Natural ingredients
  • Fresh, Delicious, Absolutely Outrageous Microbrews at a reasonable price

Can you sell your Grape Beginnings products?

No. All products are meant for personal home use. 

How Long will the beer last?

All our brews are 100% natural with no preservatives added. It is important that you store your beer in a cool dark place. (A fridge is ideal). Basically, we feel the beer is best drunk fresh, or within about 3 months. The more hops in the beer the longer the life. Beer lasts longer in the winter than the summer. Storage and bottle cleanliness are the main factors in shelf life.
