With Extreme Gratitude, Goodbye for now.

I regret to inform you that we had to close Homebrew University.  Unfortunately there were immediate mitigating circumstances that caused a swift an abrupt close to our business.  I am at a loss of words to describe how saddened I am regarding our closing.


I want to thank all of you who supported Homebrew University throughout these past seven years and want you to know that your patronage has not only enabled us to serve all home brewing needs, but has offered us the greatest opportunity in meeting great people like you who share similar passions.  I am truly blessed to have taken part in the many great experiences learning with you, answering questions, standing over boiling kettles, weighing malted barley, smelling hops and sniffing airlocks with so many awesome people.  I will sorely miss being able to meet and serve all of our customers at Homebrew University.  From the bottom of my heart and sole, Thank you!
As most know this business was my livelihood and sometimes my entire family (Maia and kids) participated which compounds the remorse in saying goodbye.  I will cherish all of the great memories and people we met that Homebrew University afforded us.  We are so grateful to you all for supporting our business/family.
As for our possible future, we hope that this is not the last of Homebrew University.  Although this may not be possible at this time, we will be looking into regrouping, reorganizing and relocating.  We know that there will always be a need to learn to make home made beer, wine and cider and we will continue to brew inspired wherever we land.  Our Facebook and web page will remain up for a while.  We will share new developments of Homebrew University if/when they occur. 
Again I cannot express how thankful I am for all of you and how saddened I am to say goodbye, for now.
ps.. Please support your local Homebrew Shop.  They depend on you more than you can know.  There are three in the area: Cask & Kettle in Boonton; BrewHardware in Whitehouse; Love2Brew in North Brunswick.  All three are extremely knowledgeable about the craft and can help answer any questions you have regarding your brew!
