The Best Distillery Tour in Wisconsin

The Minhas Distillery is a microdistillery that started in 1999.  It is co-founded by Ravinder Minhas.  The Minhas Microdistillery is essentially a craft distiller that uses old-age recipes and combines it with new-age designs and techniques.  This allows them to create new types of liquors.

When you take part in their tour, you will be given background knowledge on how spirits are made.  You may find it both informative and interesting to learn just how your favorite like vodka and rum get fermented and find how the great flavors are infused in them.

The aim of Minhas Distillery is to provide quality products that are in fancy and beautiful bottles.  These combinations of both product quality and packaging will surely provide the best for their customers, especially since the products are offered at very reasonable prices.

Minhas Distillery is constantly at work on new recipes.  If you get into a tour, the products that you may see on the shelf today may no longer be there and moved to another shelf as they are constantly creating and innovating on new products, bottle designs, and just nearly about everything.

The Minhas Distillery tour is a 1-hour tour that costs 10 dollars.  Within the tour, you will get to do some product sampling, take home a sampler glass, and get a bottle of their fine spirits.  They are located at 1404 13 St., Monroe, Wisconsin.  Visit their website at to book your tour.


June Meeting On The 23rd

The next meeting will be held at my house in Terre Haute
1379 Watertree Road
West off of route 46 onto Hulman – Just a few miles north of the Wal-mart on 46
First right off of Hulman onto Watertree (at the ponds) – if you are coming from 46
About 20 houses back on the left.  If you need directions, please call or email me
We will be on the deck out back if it is not raining.  Just walk around the right hand side of the house.  The left side of the house is a little difficult
I will have some chili on hand.   Bring some other foods if you have time and/or the desire
At this meeting in June, we will actually judge the beers that were made at the AHA sponsored Big Brew Day  on May 7th.  Which was also National Home Brewers Day. Don’t worry about whether you brewed or not for the Big Brew Day, just come
We will have plenty of beer but you are encouraged to bring some home brew or some commercial micro-brews.  If you do not have any homebrew, please consider bringing Bells Two Hearted Pale Ale
The beer we brewed on the BBD was supposed to be a clone for Bell’s Two hearted.  We need the commercial beer to compare with and to DRINK
We will be judging these beers according to the BJCP guidelines
I believe Bell’s two hearted is classified as an American Pale Ale.  Eric or anyone else, please correct me if I am wrong.  Anyhow, visit the BJCP site and introduce yourself to the guidelines for this beer.  We will have judging sheets for each beer tasted and will discuss the process as we go
This will be a great introduction to style guidelines and the associated evaluation of beers.  This should be a great time for learning.
The club is also looking into entering the Altruistic Chili cook-off in Sept. here in TH.  The chili I will be making at the next meeting will be a possible entry.  My thoughts at this time is to have a club chili cook off in August.  The winner of the club contest will go forward to the Altruistic cook-off in Sept.  It will be a great way to get our club name out to the public.  More on the chili cook-off will be discussed at the next meeting
Please try to attend the next meeting as the judging of the beers can be a very informative process

Brew Day Saturday May 7th

Just a reminder: we will be brewing on this Sat. Start time is 9 am or later at the Bee Creek Brewery,  Food will be provided and looking over the operation at Bee Creek brewery would be possible. So far we have 6 brewers and 1-2 helper/watchers.
