The Local Kitchener formerly sold basic homebrewing ingredients: malts, grains, hops and dry yeasts for local pickup in Kitchener/Waterloo. We have stopped, but if you’re looking for ingredients and supplies we recommend Short Finger Brewing in Waterloo.
We still have a small amount of brewing equipment left in stock, check it out here, however this has been phased out so supply is limited (and prices are reduced).
Need some help getting started? Maybe you’d be interested in beginning with small (4-6 litre) batches. You can read more about it in this downloadable PDF: Small Batch Beer Brewing.
You can also read a few blog posts The Local Kitchener has written about brewing:
