Northern Brewer and Midwest Supplies both announced the closure of their brick and mortar shops.  Here’s Northern Brewer’s statement, Midwest’s is similar.

Our mission has always been to fuel passion for home fermentation and provide the best equipment, ingredients, and expertise possible. Today, we are writing to share some important information regarding our retail stores, and how we will serve you going forward.

After careful consideration we have decided to close all of our brick-and-mortar retail locations effective August 31st, 2023. As a company deeply rooted in the homebrewing community, this decision was not taken lightly. Changes in customer behavior as well as shifts in market dynamics have led us to this decision. Although these closures are difficult, we firmly believe they are crucial steps as we focus 100% of our efforts on serving customers through our online experience.

So what does this mean going forward? Rest assured that we aren’t going anywhere. As we embark on this new chapter, we want to express our sincere appreciation for your continued support and understanding. Your passion for brewing has been the driving force behind everything we do, and we are excited to grow alongside you as we embrace the digital future of Northern Brewer.

Both shops are offering 20% off in store purchases through 8/21.
