LD Carlson's Flagship Brands





LD Carlson takes great pride in the products we carry and bring to the beer and wine making market. We offer many fine brands including our flagship brands -- Brewer's Best®, Vintner's Best®, and Winexpert™.


The freshest ingredients, true-to-style recipes, conveniently packaged at an affordable price - that’s the Brewer’s Best® story.  We are the nation’s most widely-distributed brand of beer ingredient kits and beer brewing equipment for today’s home craft brewer.  Our story began over 20 years ago when the home brewing industry was in its early stages.  Today, we rely on that experience and know-how to create more than 40 varieties of beer offered through our Classic, Limited Release, Premium and Seasonal lines.


Everything you need to craft your best brew is here.  We start with fresh ingredients packaged to maintain flavor as well as easy-to-follow recipes measured to perfection.  All of our recipes are perfectly formulated to maintain the integrity of the beer style you choose to brew.  Brewer’s Best® is offered through a national network of select retailers – those who carry the best products in the industry and are knowledgeable resources for today’s homebrewer.  Be sure to consult with your retailer when choosing any Brewer’s Best® products.

Vintner's Best® equipment kits are a great start to home winemaking and an excellent complement to Winexpert™ wine kits. These kits include all the necessary hardware for primary fermentation, secondary fermentation, and racking and bottling. They also include corks for your first batch of quality wine and equipment instructions. There are four equipment kits for you to choose from and your local retailer will assist you in selecting which one is best for you.


For the seasonal home winemaker we now offer Vintner’s Best® Fruit and Wine Press. This #25 ratchet press is constructed of heavy-duty cast iron with a wooden basket and wooden disc spacers. An Instruction and Recipe book is included and the unit is boxed to protect the press from scratches while in transit.  For the harvest season we have the Vintner’s Best® Apple and Fruit Crusher. This manual unit is great for preparing apples, pears and other hard fruits for winemaking. The unit can be mounted so the crushed fruit slides from the chute directly into your wine press, eliminating transfer and cleanup time. Both seasonal products include a one-year manufacturer’s warranty.
