An Explanation of our Shipping and Return Policies


Shipping Policy

We offer flat rate shipping on orders above $69 and free shipping for orders above $150.  Some exclusions apply.

We mainly use UPS but also offer USPS Priority. Free and flat rate shipping may utilize any of these shipping options. The advertised shipping estimator is only accurate when choosing the UPS shipping option.

To ensure freshness and temperature, liquid yeast is shipped with a complimentary ice packet and will not be shipped if the order will not reach its destination prior to the weekend, unless upon request.

We ship from Raleigh, North Carolina. Expect 1-5 days delivery time depending on the shipping location and service chosen. Most locations in our neighBREWhood (the East Coast) will have a 1 to 2 day shipping time when selecting the UPS shipping option. Free or flat rate shipping may take longer depending on method used.

If there are any out-of-stock items, we will contact you to confirm if you would like us to ship the out of stock items separately as a backorder or ship them all together. Additional shipping charges may apply.

Store Pickup

We offer a free in-store pickup service for our neighBREWhood friends in Raleigh, North Carolina. Please allow us 3-6 hours for pickup. If you have someone else picking up your items for you please indicate in the comments box on the order page or call us at (919) 670-4043.

International Shipping

We offer international shipping to a variety of countries in Europe and North America. International shipping options to these countries will automatically appear upon checkout, when an address is entered, but if you do not see your country available please call us at (919) 670-4043 or contact us on our website.

Return Policy

Easy returns – with no grief!

We understand that occasionally you might need to return an item – we are happy to accept returns of non-consumable products up to 30 days from your original date of purchase. Consumable products (like grain, yeast, malt extract, hops, and chemicals) must be returned within 14 days from your original date of purchase, in unused and unopened condition.

If we goofed up and sent you the wrong item, or a broken item, feel free to return it within that 30-day period for a full refund (or exchange, if you’d prefer) – we’ll cover the shipping on your return as well.If you are returning your item(s) for a reason other than our mistake or shipping damage, you’ll be liable for the shipping charge to return the item(s) to us. If the item you are returning has been used, we reserve the right to charge a 25% restocking fee.

All returns require a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA)…but how do you get one?

If you have an account on our website, simply go there ( and click “My Account” on the top left of the page, and log in. Under the “Track your recent orders” section, click “View Details” next to the order that requires a return. Click the button that says “Add New RMA,” and then fill out the form on the next page to start the return process.

The following information is required: which item and how many of that item you are returning, the reason why you’re returning it, and how you’d like to complete the return (ie, do you want an exchange, or your money back?). If you have any other comments or pictures to share with us (for example, of a defective item) this would be a great place to attach them. Once you click “Save RMA”, we’ll review your return and get in touch with you. We try to respond to all return requests within 48 hours. After that, you’ll simply put your items in a box, as securely packed as possible, and send them back to us (using the return label we’ve provided for you, if applicable). We’ll take it from there!

Shipping Damage and Incorrect Orders

If at any time your order is incorrect or contains damaged goods, please contact us so that we can correct the issue. Call us at (919) 670-4043 or contact us on our website. We will make every attempt to contact you within one business day, if not sooner.

If you experience any damaged shipping material or product, please e-mail us photos to assist us in both the claims process and in improving our shipping practices.
