Welcome to East Coast Hoppers! I'm sorry that we are not quite ready for your visit yet but here is a little information about us to give you an idea of who we are and what we plan to achieve:
My name is Matt and I'm a long time avid all grain home brewer. For the longest time I've been frustrated with the lack of available brewing ingredients here in PEI but also within the the Maritimes. I'm also tired of placing an order online and paying almost the same value of that order in shipping which inflates the cost of brewing to twice what it should be or could be if there was a good local supply of ingredients.
So I decided to do something about it and start up Prince Edward Island's only brewing supply company that offers quality, fresh brewing ingredients such as malt, hops, yeast and water treatment salts.
Our number one goal is to offer the most diverse selection of fresh, high quality brewing ingredients at the most affordable prices. I'd love nothing more than to have everything you could possibly want to put in a brew all in one place.
Our second goal is to try to get it to you without the high cost of shipping. If you are like me, you are tired of buying a bag of 2-row and then paying almost that value again to have it shipped to you. To help Maritime home brewers, we are incorporating on and off island deliveries into our business model. We plan to make stops in many communities, towns and cities around the maritimes that have a lack of access to local brewing ingredients and supplies so you can stock up on everything you need and we'll bring them right to your area, converting those shipping costs into additional savings or more brewing ingredients. Stay tuned for our travel schedule to see when we will be in your area next!
We are currently working hard to set up shop but we hope to see you back very soon! Please sign up for updates as we get closer to our grand opening.
