Crafting Excellence Since 2005

In October 2005, Dave and his close friend Rick embarked on a journey to share their passion for craft beer by opening Tamarack Wine & Spirits Homebrew Shop. What started as a modest endeavor soon blossomed into a hub for enthusiasts seeking unique and artisanal beverages. Keep reading to learn more about Tamarack Wine & Spirits Homebrew Shop.

From Hobbyists to Entrepreneurs

Just a year into our venture, a local home brewer sparked an idea that would shape our future. Encouraged by their suggestion, we began offering home brewing supplies, starting with the essentials and gradually expanding our selection. This decision proved advantageous, as it ignited a movement within our community. Over the years, we've had the pleasure of witnessing nearly 30 home brewers transition into successful ventures, including breweries, cideries, wineries, and even distilleries.

Steadfast Leadership

While Rick departed the business in 2007, Dave continued to steer the ship, fostering its growth and evolution. In 2010, Dave and his wife Monica welcomed their daughter Kallan into the world, marking another significant chapter in their lives.

Crafting Excellence

Fast-forward to January 2024, a pivotal moment for Tamarack Homebrew Shop. With a desire to fully immerse ourselves in the world of home brewing, we decided to sell the liquor store and relocate our homebrew shop to its dedicated space. This move allows us to concentrate entirely on our passion for crafting exceptional brews. Under Dave's leadership, we are committed to offering a comprehensive range of supplies and services, from contests and classes to brewery tours and beyond.

Let’s Begin a New Chapter

Whether you're a novice or a seasoned brewer, we invite you to join us on our quest for brewing excellence. Visit our shop, connect with us online, or attend one of our upcoming events. Together, let's raise a glass to the endless possibilities of home brewing. Cheers!
