Toronto Brewing Supplies

Where to buy brewing supplies in Toronto

Brewing supplies in Toronto offer a fantastic alternative to your bathtub and that broken oar from the cottage. Yes, there's actually a place where you can buy everything you need to make your own craft brew at home, just in case you feel stifled (who are you?!) by Toronto's existing beer offerings.

Grampa Simpson in The Simpsons stumbled upon his best-selling "revitalizing tonic" when he was trying to find a cheap substitute for holy water. He used a combination of elixirs from his medicine cabinet, which, while I'm sure quite potent, doesn't really work for the everyman trying to impress company with his own home brew (and avoid liability, at that).

Toronto Brewing Co. is an online operation offering aspiring brew-kings pretty much everything they need to make beer at home. For the novice, the site has handy starter kits, which include a recipe kit, fermentation jug, mini auto-siphon, and bottle filler, though you need to supply the bottles and kettle. And for the more experienced (or else, ambitious) brewer, Toronto Brewing offers various types of hops, malts, yeasts, and flavourings to customize your own creation.

Though primarily an online operation, Toronto Brewing Co. does allow customers to pick up from its temporary location at Yonge and Eglinton, which cuts down on shipping costs when ordering a 27-gallon conical fermenter. Though consumption and distribution is totally up to you, I've heard father and son travelling roadshow typically lead to great success.
