WELCOME PENSACOLA AREA BREWERS
We were saddened to learn of the closing of The Shady Lady in Pensacola recently. The Wine Smith would like to be your "local" homebrew shop. Although it's a bit of a drive, we think you'll like our prices and selection on brewing equipment and ingredients.
The Wine Smith has both pin lock and ball lock Kegging Kits available for $229 and $239, respectively. Kits include a reconditioned keg, 5 lb. (filled) CO2 tank and dual gauge TapeRite pressure regulator, plus the appropriate hoses, fittings and a squeeze tap. Either kit without the keg is $185. A BYO Kegging Guide is also included with each kit.
