Thanks to all who entered and please enter again for the April draw by Clicking Here
So far supply lines are holding up so we can keep our commitments to our customers and keep providing you with the vital ingredients to overcome the present situation. We are a tight knit community of Brewers, Vintners, spirit makers who come together in times of crisis and help each other out.
Please check our website for product information. We have a good supply of Winexpert wine kits, Extract beer kits along with Festa Brew 23l Sterile wort kits. We apologize that we still have no ETA on the Brewhouse beer kits. Watch our website and social media channels for an announcement when the manufacturer gets them back out into the brewing community.
We still honor our quantity discount program along with our special interest group discounts as we always have. If you are one of the group discounts please remember to tell us or put your affiliation in your email so we ensure you get your discount. Remember all kit purchases get discounts when you buy two or more kits and massive discounts at 6 kits or more.
Our hours will remain the same however we will not be opening the show room as new rules are for a contactless sale and curbside pickup. We will be accepting phone and email orders. Order wait times are averaging 30 minutes or less at this point. As the single phone line is the choke point we suggest emailing your questions or orders with your phone number and we will call you back if we need to clarity and to arrange payment/pickup. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for the quickest service and leave us your contact name and phone number. As well as Master Card and Visa, we now accept payment via etransfer at email@example.com as a replacement for cash sales.
Easter Weekend we will be open 11am to 3pm Good Friday (April 10th) and 11am to 3pm Easter Sunday (April 12th). We will RESUME regular hours on Monday (April 13th).
We can’t think of a more fitting thing to say now other than to quote the Great Charlie Papazian who is more well known for his homebrewing book The Joy of Homebrewing rather than his work as a Nuclear Engineer. "Don’t Worry, have a homebrew"
Oh yea and don’t forget to wash your hands and support your local businesses. We will survive and then thrive if we look after ourselves and then those closest to us. Together we will rebuild the brave new economy.
Keep Calm and Stay Safe
Neil, Tom and staff
