Hey guys,
I'm just moving to Guelph next weekend and could use some assistance in finding a few places locally to buy grains and hops!

I work in Halton Hills so anywhere from guelph to Milton would be ideal for me.

Thanks,
Kyle

I know that feel. I grew up in milton. Glad to hear tho that at least one guy is homebrewing.

I'm from hamilton, but drive to guelph for work every day. We have our own club down this way, with a few guys from St kitts, stoney creek, burlington etc... We're called the HOZERs.

Since I'm in guelph quite a bit I wouldnt mind meeting up with some GRAB guys on occasion as well.

The SOBs are a decent rescource but mostly Toronto based. As is CABA

Brewing over here in Burlington! Has anyone else found it a challenge to find local or semi-local supply stores? The only place I've found with a good stock is Canadian Home Brew Supplies in Mississauga. I'm thinking of making the transition to kegging, but I am having a hell of a time finding suppliers with decent prices. My best option seems to be http://www.ontariobeerkegs.com/.

Does anyone else in the GTA/South-GTA area have any local retailers they would suggest?

For most things, CHBS is the best bet. A little pricey but whatever - it's close, and the selection is good. When things get crazy there I check out hopdawgs.ca, as their prices for hops are usually fairly reasonable and they have really fast shipping.

Patrick at ontariobeerkegs is the best for that kegging stuff, by far.

What you really need to do is join the Southern Ontario Homebrewers and get in on the group buys and local promotions - www.areyouansob.com

There's a grain buy coming up in October I think.
