So I'm guessing there was no preperation to this change?  Everything just seems to be bogged up and does online ordering even go to the right people?  Just seems like nothing at all has been organized before this drastic change.... the phone number on the website isn't even right, I was calling it all day today.

Yes, it did happen somewhat suddenly, but it will get organized again soon. Jess has been doing this since 1973 and knows how to run a good homebrew store. You can use either shopping cart - both systems are now being handled by AltBev.

I'm not sure why that is. I will check with Jess and Ale.

Good luck to all involved! (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/cheers.gif)

I wonder if the new owner knows what he's in for when he inherits the Public House (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/biggrin.gif)

It's my understanding that this all happened somewhat suddenly and unexpectedly.


I happened to be in Charlotte back on Feb 4th (Saturday) and stopped by the shop to pick up some supplies, and at that time they had a sign on the door about no longer having weekend hours because they were moving. Is that associated with this merger, or was that just an old sign?

And yes, the orders definitely seem to be bogged down in cyberspace. I wound up placing my "walk-in" order via the website, and have yet to see or hear anything about it. Working on 9 days now...

Abbey Normal, Aniline Ale, Big Ben, Schizoid, High Sierra Bigfeet, High Sierra Pale to name a few.

All of the All Grain and all of the Lager pdf's are there. 

Get 'em now before they're gone, I guess.

Do a web search in Google and look for "cached" copies of the webpages. See if that works. That is how I got the recipe for CJ's JPA. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/smile.gif)

I don't think this applies to everyone (the discount)? It'd be nice though...

I believe a number of the extract recipes were taken down because of inventory issues....I'd expect they'll be back up soon.

Just talked to Jason.... can totally tell they are getting loads of orders on their back. Mine's shipping out monday, which is cool. Call em up if you have an order in and I'm sure they'll give you the details.

I just added the following to the original announcement for clarification....

Online orders can continue to be placed on either site.   The HBA shopping cart is currently sending orders to AltBev for fulfillment, although would expect that eventually there will be just one shopping cart.

So, will AltBev honor your prices? The Phil's sparger is almost 10 dollars cheaper by HBA prices.

My guess is that he will honor that, but don't expect it to last. Prices will eventually be synchronized, whether by raising, lowering, or some where inbetween.

On the phone with Ale right now. All Homebrew.com orders are honored while the site remains. Ordered my sparger. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/smile.gif)

I hope this brew board becomes completely independent. It really is the best forum and should not be fettered to a homebrew store.

Man, Chauvan, don't visit my house.  I can't afford to move. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/smile.gif)

Okay, the big question: WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR THE BREWBOARD?
*

Hello guys, I am Yoomann (Jess) and I know that there are a lot of questions that need to be addressed and I will be as honest as I can be - at all times. The BREWBOARD is something that I have looked upon as a true asset to the brewing community. To make any changes could be a tragic mistake. I shall look to the members and moderators for guidance before any changes if any are made. However, one thing that needs to change is an up-grade to a dedicated server so that the flow of information is much smoother. We will research our options and procedure as quickly as possible.
