New Faces New Places: Providing Organic Products For The Best Home Brew

Brewing beer at home has been a longtime hobby for Jordan Trask, but when he wanted to take the quality of his homebrew to the next level by switching over to organic ingredients, he ran into more trouble than anticipated.

“I knew the products existed, but I couldn’t source them,” he explains. “So rather than continuing my search as a consumer, I decided to start a business that would carry everything in one place and give other like-minded consumers a one-stop-shop to buy organic ingredients for brewing beer.”

So he started Organic Brew Supplies — an online business that brings together everything a home brewer needs to create the perfect pint of organic beer.

Trask can ship his products countrywide but says he is happy to meet with his Saskatoon customers in person to help them get exactly what they are looking for and talk on the finer details that go into brewing a great beer.

“The great thing about (brewing) is you can get as deep as you want into it,” he said. “It doesn’t have to be intimidating, and there’s a really great community … there are a lot of like-minded people who meet up and discuss ideas — whether in person or online.”

And so far Trask says his “one-of-a-kind” business in Canada has been catching on with like-minded beer brewers, counting both hobbyist and small craft breweries among his customers, though he notes he has also been receiving queries from kombucha brewers and even a chocolatier who was looking to find a specific type of organic sugar.

Though his business is based online, Trask is serious about making sure his customers get the personalized service they need, and though he has no current plans to open a retail store, he is excited to see how it grows and gain feedback from his customers.

“There are no dumb questions, and I’m always happy to take someone’s feedback or answer any questions,” he said. “I don’t want people to be intimidated by the whole process of making your own beer because it can be really fun and really rewarding.”
