    We're off to Bayswater. Bigger premises (so we can order/store more stuff...), more power points to run all the fridges need to store bulk hops...& run my brewery (which has been sadly dormant since I started this job). Etc...etc...

    Exciting times ahead, gents...

    good move - just around the corner from me.

    A bit of competition for a certain local LHBS who's pricing is in the "if Im desperate for ingrediants" price range

    Gird your loins & make sure the plastic is well-enabled ;)

    I'm sure we'll lose a few regular "pick-up" customers from Moorabbin (who often drop-in to collect their orders with a bottle or two in hand- hint B) ), but we'll collect a few new ones from the local area as things settle after the move.

    Not intending to piss on Pete's shop (it was the floor space & location that dictated the move), but we're intending to offer a 10% club discount to all of the Melbourne-based club members in the future (just gotta get it coordinated through the Vicbrew committee).

    I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you.

    Suffice it to say at this stage that it's in a large warehouse somewhere on Canterbury Road...

    Our Sister company in NZ (http://www.brewshop.co.nz/) doesn't allow pick-ups & they don't get the concept of BB's (something I've been educating the boss into over the past 18 months), so let's just keep things frosty for the moment, eh?
