Hmmm. I wonder if they will keep the website but move the fulfillment, support, etc to the same warehouse and staff used for the Northern Brewer and Midwest business. In other words, lay-off the staff (unfortunate for sure), but keep the business. They are still advertising $25 gift certificates with $125 purchase. That would suck for customers if they are truly shutting down.
This would also affect Austin Homebrew Supply since they are owned by Adventures in Homebrewing.
