Vermont Homebrew Supply
Thank you for your support of our small business!
Update: Curbside or Inside?
We have unlocked the door! Sort of. If it's at all possible to call in your order please do. We can minimize your time in the store and keeps us all safe. If the weather isn't too bad we might lock the door and keep doing the window service. But as winter kicks in that will become a less desirable option. So if the door is unlocked, You can come into the store now but there are some changes.
You must wear a mask. We will too!
You must sanitize your hands. It's on the counter.
We have a sign in sheet. If one of us gets sick we will call you. We promise not to call or share any information.
Please, just 1 brewer at a time. No children. The toys aren't here anymore :-(
We will crush your grain and pull hops & yeast for you.
Please continue to bring in your malt buckets for refills. (we still pour!) If you want to bring in a shopping bag, please do. Happy to minimize use of paper bags.
