Default Online Canadian stores?

Hey, I've moved back to Canada and I'm trying to sort out where to get the best supplies online. Does anyone have recommendations?

Thanks

This guy posted in a Detroit thread, he said they were across the border in Windsor, and sounds like they ship.

Innovation Homebrewing

They're also on facebook.

hopdawgs.ca has been very good. They have hops and yeast along with a limited (compared to large online retailers) supply of equipment.

morebeer.com will ship to Canada via USPS so you don't get raped by UPS on customs brokerage charges. You still have to pay GST and whatever applicable duty is but it's a good option.

Where are you moving to and what exactly will you be looking for? That might help others chime in with more advice.

I just tried torontobrewing.ca but we don't really have anything that compares to the big us online retailers unfortunately. Toronto brewing seems to have the best shipping rates from all the sites i've looked at

In Calgary. I have most of the equipment I need already...just need to replace a few minor things (e.g. buckets) both those are simple. Generally i brew partial mash at this point, but thinking of shifting to all grain shortly. The Vineyard here in town appears to have most of what I need, but brick and mortar shops are always a little costlier

Calgary has a great homebrewing club: www.yeastwranglers.ca You might want to get in touch with them and get a recommendation. I bet if you send a note through their "Contact Us" page you'll hear back soon. http://www.yeastwranglers.ca/About/C...5/Default.aspx

They might do bulk buys or something once in a while too.

Edit: the place where I sent my Calgary competition entries looks to carry some supplies: http://www.thevineyard.ca/beermaking

I'm a Yeast Wrangler myself. We tend to try and do group buys of some ingredients, but personally, I've purchased from both www.hopdawgs.ca and www.homebrew-supplies.ca. Neil at the Vineyard (LHBS) is also very good at bringing in equipment and ingredients for homebrewing, but some of us have managed to do our own things with crap bought from Canadian Tire or other hardware places.
