Herbs, Spices, Dry Fruit & Flavorings

Some of these flavors are hallmarks of a style, such as coriander and orange peel in a Belgian Wit. Maybe you're looking to augment your big bold imperial stout with some genuine vanilla beans or cacao nibs? How about brewing something ancient using heather tips instead of hops?

Herbs & Spices
Herbs & Spices

Sweet and Bitter Orange Peel / Coriander Seeds

Orange peel and coriander add citrus flavor. Often used in Belgian style beers and a must for some styles such as Belgian Wit.

Paradise Seeds

Paradise seeds (or grains of paradise) add a spicy character, most often used in Belgian ales but we've even added them to rye IPA!

Vanilla Beans / Organic Cacao (Cocoa) Nibs

Vanilla beans and cacao nibs are a favorite in stouts and porters. Try roasting the cacao nibs to bring out even more chocolate flavor.

Star Anise

Star anise tastes like black licorice, another unique addition to dark beers.

Heather Tips

Heather tips have been used in lieu of hops to provide bitterness for "ancient" style beer such as Fraoch.

Rose Hips

Rose hips add color and a unique floral character to wines and beer. I've even used them in sour ales.

Dried Elderberries

Dry elderberries add tannins and color to wine. I've used them in mead as well.

Indian Sarsaparilla


Brewer's Best Flavorings

Liquid flavorings come in 4 floz bottles. It is not recommended to dose an entire bottle as many of these flavors are potent! Wait until fermentation is complete and add small amounts until the desired aroma and flavor is attained. Can even be added right before bottling. As always, other flavors are available upon request.

Apple, Black Currant, Blackberry, Blueberry, Cherry, Peach, Raspberry, Strawberry & Watermelon



Wood is a necessary ingredient for many wines, especially reds and my favorite Chardonnays. It's also very useful in creating barrel aged beers such as bourbon barrel stouts and sour ales such as the Flemish red. Availabe in 3 oz, 4 oz, and 1 lb. packages. Infusion spirals in both French and American oak also avialable!

Liquid Essence

Liquid essence is quick and easy to dose.

  • Sinatin 17
  • Spruce


Chips add flavor quicker whereas cubes provide more rounded flavor but require longer residence times.

  • American Light
  • French Medium
  • American Heavy


Spirals take at least six weeks to fully extract flavor.

  • American Light
  • American Medium
  • American Heavy
  • French Light
  • French Medium
  • French Heavy


  • Hungarian Medium
You may wish to purchase light toasted oak and toast it yourself. Moisture and heat can bring about many different flavors and aromas. All that's required is a spritz of water, aluminum foil (with holes poked), and an oven. In the case of bourbon barrel beers you may wish to char the oak after toasting with a torch, be sure to keep a spritzing bottle around!
