Store Closing Sale!

Store Closing Sale!

VERY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!
Hey y’all! Real talk. No bullshit.
I am writing this post to announce that I have made the difficult decision to close Humboldt Beer Works.
It breaks my heart to say this, as I did not come to this decision lightly. My feelings aside, there is just not enough local support for this small local business to compete against the availability and convenience of ordering from the ‘Zon or major online retailers.
I have been honored and privileged to be a small business owner in a rural area, trying to save the world one homebrew at a time.
Unfortunately, local sales didn't reflect expectations. Hopes & wishes do not pay the bills. I may not have been 100% all of the time, but anyone that actually knows me knows that I gave 110% of whatever I had in the tank.
I sacrificed myself and my relationship with my wife, family, friends and community. I can no longer pour from an empty cup.
Despite my best efforts, the big online retailers have won.
At least I tried.
I can’t thank our local brewing and fermentation communities enough, especially our local brewing club, the Humboldt Homebrewers, for your continued support for the last six years of my ownership of the shop and for supporting Humboldt Beer Works, your local homebrew shop, since 2011. I am also honored and grateful that many of you have become my good friends and a part of my Humboldt family.
In order to clear out the space before my lease is up, I will begin offering storewide discounts starting tomorrow (Tues 7/2).
• All inventory will be on clearance through the end of July.
• Any remaining inventory will be on steep discount starting August 1st.
• All Fixtures, Furniture & Equipment will be available for purchase August 1-17.
• Last day of public operations is Saturday August 17th.
Stop on by before August 17th and say hi, regale me with one last story from brewing lore of the past and maybe meet me at the bar to raise a pint!
Don’t let this stop you from brewing, dammit! #keephumboldtbrewing
Cheers, and BREW ON, my friends!
