Beer is very delicate and is extremely vulnerable to damage from bacteria, oxygen and sunlight. Glass bottles, plastic bottles and aluminum cans each have benefits and drawbacks:

CANS

Aluminum cans are the best option for making sure your beer is safe from bacterial contamination and sunlight:
They’re single-use, so each time you fill a can, it’s brand-new.

Convenient: There are no empty bottles to wash, and your empties can go in your regular recycling. No deposit is paid on our cans, so there’s no need to take empties to the recycling depot for a refund.

Portable: Cans are a great option for times when you want to bring your beer with you, and don’t want to worry about broken glass or heavy and bulky empties. They also stack in a refrigerator more easily than bottles.

CAUTION: Canning beer improperly can lead to taste problems and/or flat beer. Proper canning requires a little bit of skill and attention to detail, but is also a lot of fun!

BOTTLES

The biggest advantage of glass or plastic bottles is that, unlike cans, they are re-useable, so you don’t have to buy new ones with each batch of beer.

CAUTION: However, you MUST keep your bottles scrupulously clean! That means rinsing empties right away and cleaning them carefully with soap and hot water. Any residue whatsoever-even a microscopic amount can infect the next beer you pour into that bottle, and ruin its taste. The West Coast Brew Shop provides machines to rinse your CLEAN bottles with sanitizer just before filling, but the sanitizer does NOT clean dirty bottles! If you doubt your housekeeping abilities, choose cans instead!

PLASTIC BOTTLES VS. GLASS BOTTLES

Plastic bottles should be replaced more frequently than glass bottles, as the plastic breaks down over time and develops microscopic scratches on its surface, where bacteria will grow. We recommend replacing plastic bottles at least once a year. Plastic bottles won’t break, of course, so they’re a good option if you need your beer to be portable.

CAUTION: Our green plastic bottles don’t block UV light, which causes changes in the beer’s aroma, so you must keep your brew in a dark place at all times.

Glass bottles are the brewing industry standard, and for good reason: Properly cleaned, brown glass bottles protect beer from UV light, oxygen and bacterial contamination very effectively, and can be cleaned and re-used repeatedly.

We can provide you with brand-new 500ml plastic bottles, 1L plastic bottles or 341ml brown glass bottles, and their caps. Or, bring in your own CLEAN bottles.

South African Shiraz - January 2010

Premium | Selection Limited Edition Series | Red

South African Shiraz – January 2010 Limited Release
 
The Region: Stellenbosch is South Africa’s oldest growing region, the centre for study of viticulture and oenology in Africa, and the heart of the wine industry. Famous for its stunning natural beauty, it has soaring mountains, forests, vineyards, olive groves and veldts. South Africa’s finest red wines thrive in the Cape’s moderate climate, and the Shiraz from this region is dense with jammy richness, intense fruit, and complex spiciness.

The Wine: This wine has a dense, chewy blackberry, earthiness and robust character. This medium/full bodied wine almost begs for early drinking, with spice and rich fruit, but the bold tannins and rich jamminess (typical of Shiraz) will allow it to improve with age for a further 2 years.

The Food: The pepper, plums and red fruit aromas and abundant tannins blend wonderfully with barbecue, grilled red meat and stews.

Italian Brunello - April 2010

Premium | Selection Limited Edition Series | Red

Italian Brunello – April 2010 Limited Release
 
The Region: Italy’s long, narrow peninsula reaches deep into the Mediterranean,basking in the relentless sunshine and welcoming warmth. Gentle sloping hillsides, rich mineral soils, the moderating breezes off of the Mediterranean waters and unique grape varieties work to make wonderful wines.

The Wine: Brunello is a large-berried variety of the Sangiovese grape, most famous in Brunello di Montalcino. The flavour profile of Sangiovese is fruity, with strong natural acidity, a firm and elegant assertiveness and a robust finish that can extend surprisingly long. The aroma is generally subtle, with cherry, strawberry, blueberry, and violet notes. Medium-bodied but boldly tannic and intense, this gripping wine will begin to open up after six months, but the richer flavours will take at least 18 months to show, with cherry and spice dominating the long, fruity finish.

The Food: Brunello shines in the company of assertively flavoured foods. Hard cheeses such as Asiago and Parmigiano Reggiano are splendid accompaniments and the wines backbone of acids and tannins make it work well with rich and spicy foods like Italian sausages or lasagna.

Australian Petit Verdot – February 2010 Limited Release
 
The Region: South East Australia is a literal hotbed of grape growing. The abundant sunshine hours and heat allow growers to ripen varieties that have all but been abandoned by growing regions less blessed. Petit Verdot is one such variety. It makes unsurpassed red wines in Bordeaux, where it goes into their classic Cabernet-Merlot blends, yet the climate there is too cool to ripen it reliably.

The Wine: Best described as a ‘Super Cabernet’, it makes dark, rich wines, with wonderfully concentrated flavours of spice, blackberry and blackcurrant. With smooth, gripping tannins and an elegant structure leading to a magnificent boldly oaked finish, this is a wine for long term ageing and special occasions.

The Food: Excellent when paired with steak, prime rib, lamb, intense cheeses, and game.
