Just saw an advertisement for these guys. Strange website.

Anyone ever heard of them? They are in Brampton, ON.

A bunch of the links on this page work. Lots of cool stuff like 4 kegs for $75! I hope this store is for real.

I just get the same blank page with scrollbars in firefox but it comes up in IE. I don't think I could order from a such a terrible site myself. Their prices on kegs are pretty bad, $75 for a ball lock keg?!

Yes, I get the same thing. Works under IE but not FireFox.

FireFox users should try their storefront (which is different from their home page -- but I don't understand why). Here it is:
Homebrew Supplies

And yes, some prices are high, some seem very reasonable. But that sounds like pretty much any online Canadian LHBS I have ever encountered!
