I know that most homebrewers are starting to think about Christmas and holidays and we should all be preparing our brews for the holiday season.
While December is a time where we will want to experimenter remember to have your favorite beers ready to enjoy while trying new beers. Especially during the hot days where light beers will be easy to drink on a hot day.
Don't forget that favorite person in your life. They might enjoy that cold cider or cocktail mix.
As always during December periods transport costs tend to increase on all the non-pouch or non-standard packaged items.
We are closing on the 25th of December and we will be leaving our online orders open until we return. We may begin packing online orders as early as the 12th but this will depend on stock availability from our bigger suppliers opening and closing times. Our store will officially be open from the 19th of January.
