    Sorry about that. Well at least next week we will have the new shipping rates so the shipping cost on our website will come down. Hopefully you can still order from us online.

    will pick ups and purchases be able to be made from this warehouse?

    Prolly a little far for a daily commute for me, but I will travel for beer, swap, beer bits, and beer... once in a while.;)

    For general warehouse staff we will pay $24 per hour + Super.

    If you are able to contribute to the business in a way that is more valuable to the business the rate will be higher. For instance if you have skills in CAD and engineering we might be able to make a part of the role in design so you can work with one of our other engineers. If you have experience in software development this is also an area where we will pay more too.

    Yes we will be allowing pickups from the warehouse from 9am til 5pm Monday to Friday.

    With that said we will eventually have 24/7 pickups available from our own private parcel lockers which is the long term plan.

    Any future plans to be open on a Saturday morning?

    Always good to be able to pop in over the weekend for those that work full time!

    Although reading again sounds like there won't be a store front?

    I hope so. We have to put some effort in to make the place a bit more secure and also get the software working well. We will first need to build and test this system for picups during business hours and if it goes well then it will be extended to after hours. I guess we feel that a lot of our customers might live in the area or might drive down Springvale road occasionally but they work full time and for that reason often cant pick goods up. Then some customers might brew on the weekend and dont want to risk mail order and the goods not turning up on time. The cost of having staff at a normal retail store for lengthy opening hours is not economical. So to solve all these problems we hope this new model will appeal to our customers both wholesale and retail. The only issue is you have to place your order online first. We will try to pick all orders within 3 hours and get them in the pickup lockers.

    So for some customers this may not have the appeal of a traditional retail store where you can come in and browse the aisles. But at the same time we do have a lot of busy customers who just want to run in, grab their stuff and leave without having to wait in a que at checkout. This model will suit those customers.

    The other issue is that this will be a bit impersonal, so to make up for this I think we can then run brew day classes so we still have some degree of personal interaction with our customers as well as educate the customer base.

    So what do you guys think? Would this type of model suit you?

    24/7 pick would suit, picking something up at 5 am to beat the traffic would be good

    24/7 pick up from a locker is a great idea

    You don't need staff/reps in Geelong/Western Victoria by any chance?

    By the way, congrats on your growth and good luck in future :)

    Cheers and beers :)

    Thanks for the message. We really appreciate it.

    I am sorry but we have no plans to open a retail store on that side of the city any time soon.
