Initially, when the business opened in 1987, it was the first business in Sudbury and one of the first in Ontario, that allowed customers to have the opportunity to brew their own beer.
Today, as trends have changed, the demand for beer making has virtually disappeared and wine making has become the main focus of the business.
Joyce and Tim Nolan purchased U-Brew in August of 2001 and have expanded their product lines in order to bring their customers wine from virtually every wine growing region in the world. Today Hop & Grape UBrew Inc. is the exclusive supplier of Winexpert Wine kits. These are available in over 100 varieties and made from grapes from all points of the world.
Since the onset of the Sudbury Star’s “The Readers Have Spoken Most Favorite Survey” the Hop & Grape UBrew Inc. has been voted #1 five times out of 9 for favourite wine making store. This speaks volumes to the extent of service and product quality given to our customers considering there are 6 Brew-on-Premises in the Sudbury district.
The Summer of 2009 they were invited by Winexpert to incorporate their name and logo into our identity. By branding with Winexpert, this allowed us to be a part of a Canada wide Company.
Hop & Grape UBrew Inc. has plenty of space to make and bottle wine. There are 3 state of the art bottling stations complete with corkers, and a bottle washing & sanitizing area for people who wish to reuse their bottles. We can easily accommodate groups who wish to make a variety of wines and share.
With so many wine choices available, Nick and Nate will take the time to find out what kind of wine you prefer. Their knowledge and experience will help you choose the perfect wine for you.
Our mission is to be the best wine making store in Sudbury by delivering excellence in all aspects of our business. We believe that there is an infinite capacity to improve.
At Hop & Grape UBrew Inc. we strive to exceed our customer’s expectations by responding to their needs and providing them with unparalleled customer support. We demonstrate trust in all of our customer relationships through honest and open communication.
