Hi! My name is Josh, I live in the beautiful Sunshine State on the northern side of Brisbane and I am a home brewer just like you!

Brewing is my passion, I have brewed a wide variety of Beers, Ciders, Meads and even dipped my toe into Spirits. But as the cost of ingredients has slowly risen over the years I have grown frustrated with the price of brewing a great batch of beer. Even participating in a bulk buy through various LHBS’s, I was not receiving any great discounts.

This is the reason why I have created Mates Rates! I don’t believe that brewing should be an expensive hobby so I went out with my own savings and purchased as much hops as I could afford in the hopes to make brewing that little bit cheaper for everyone.

The motto I stand behind is to bulk buy so that you don’t have to, saving you money and space.

If you have any questions about any of the products I sell or brewing in general, please feel free to send me a message using a Contact Form or Facebook Page, or you can always find me on Home Brewers Australia Facebook group.
