As being a valued customer of ours over the last 20+ years, we would like to inform you we will be winding down operations as Canadian Homebrew Supplies Incorporated over the next couple of months.

This decision was based on many factors:

The current Covid-19 effect it has on the economy, unsettlement in the east, the sale of our retail building, and retirement being the greater of the reasons. 

Times sure have changed over the past few years and I believe it will continue for some time to come.

Inflation continues to rise to numbers not seen in many years, supply chains are drained due to labour shortages, global logistics disruptions due to rising costs, these are just some of the reason’s that I put a lot of thought and discussion into before making this decision 

We will start liquidating our remaining inventory of over $650,000 commencing on the 8th of April 2023. We will not be replenishing any more products from this point forward. All special order items will no longer be visible to be purchased. You may have noticed that several Items have been out of stock for some time as we started reducing our purchasing several months ago due to the reduced availability and transport costs for partial orders. 

Reductions of up to 60% off will be listed as we make them available; most items will be at or below cost. We have spent countless hours trying to set the discounts into the website to no avail. We currently have over 4700 different products, situating these into areas for discounts have proved to be impossible. 

So in turn we will be offering a base discount code and will be adjusting any current sale items accordingly. Some Items will be listed at the lowest possible price and placed into a directory called “final sale” where the discount code will not apply. 

Due to the condition of this liquidation.     All sales are FINAL SALE. 

As we have covered all manufacturers’ warranties in house in the past, any future issues arising must be dealt with the manufacturers directly. 

All reward points were given as an appreciation for supporting us, and will have no cash value from this point forward due to the huge reduction in pricing. 

All outstanding gift card balances need to be redeemed by April 30th 2023. All outstanding card owners will be notified via email to do so, or balance will be forfeited. Any outstanding gift certificates dated on or after April 30th 2021 need to be redeemed by April 30th 2023. Gift certificates were valid for a period of 2 years.

Due to the volume of expected orders, please be patient while we process and ship your ordered items. Orders will be fulfilled and processed in the order they are received, and as quickly as humanly possible. If an ordered Item is not available for some unforeseen reason, we will notify you prior to shipping out your order.

Please consider the insurance coverage if offered for the product as protection in case of loss or damage.

Website will remain operating in live inventory, as products are sold-out they will be removed from view. Any found inventory will be relisted as required till sold. We suggest you check back often as due to the volume of inventory we have, the stock levels will change frequently as they are found, sold, and adjusted. 

Beginning April 10th 2023 we will no longer be packing smaller quantities of hops and grain. 

Hops varieties will be available in 8oz and 1lb bulk bags only once the smaller packaging has been depleted. We will try to accommodate the sizing ordered if time permits.

Base malts and specialty grain will be packaged in the ordered quantities once the current packaging has been depleted. We will try to accommodate the sizing ordered if time permits.

(Example)  If you order 7 pound's, you will receive a 7 pound bag, if you order 3 pound's, you will receive a 3 pound bag. Larger quantities will be packaged as required to reduce package size for shipping. We will try to accommodate when we can. Due to the time limitation we have we will not be offering milling, if you are in a bind and contact us, we will try to accommodate you but there is no guarantee we will be able to.

As of April 10th  2023, retail outlet will remain open with extended days and hours. Please see the website on this date for updated days and times. We will be closed April 7-9 for a pre scheduled event and to continue to update the website.

All products may be purchased in store, or ordered online for pickup or delivery. 

Please consider that all shipping costs are calculated by Canada Post. Large bulky orders cannot be calculated correctly due to the volumetric pricing couriers now use, if additional shipping fees are required, you will be notified prior to shipping. 

As of May 1st 2023, visits to the retail outlet are by appointment only. Online orders will continue to be shipped as received but in a delayed timeframe of approximately 7 days, pickup orders will be allowed (please wait till you receive an email that it is ready) as it will take longer than our current 2 hour window and could take up to 7 days as product will be in or in transit to a new facility.

As of May 1st we will not allow store pickups, these MAY resume June 12th. No orders placed on the website will be processed between May 1st and June 11th, these will resume June 12th. After we complete our move out.

As of May 31st 2023 the retail outlet doors will close, website will remain open until further notice with mentioned delayed shipping.

Anyone (club, business or individual) that is interested in large quantities of any particular stock, please contact us personally. We do have interest in our stock of small special Items; this is still open to offers and is available individually as of this writing.

All in house display equipment is not listed online, but is available to be seen and purchased in store at a fair discount; this equipment is new display only, and most will not include original packaging. 

All used in house equipment will also be offered at a huge discount, including our rental equipment, and unclaimed items.

We will also be listing some warranty returns to be offered at a low cost with the issue that needs correction, we prefer this to be viewed and purchased instore only, but will make available online as sold “as-is” just ask us for the list via email.

I would like to finish this announcement by saying THANK YOU to everyone personally for your support over the last 20 plus years.
