Free or Flat Shipping Policies


We currently support a subsidized shipping program for eligible items.  Within the program we offer free shipping when an order containing only eligible items exceeds $79 subtotal (shipped within the contiguous 48 states), or if the subtotal is below $79 then a $10 flat rate will apply. Some items are restricted. Eligibility is indicated on the sales page for each item.

We add the exact shipping charges on ineligible items and any shipping outside the contiguous USA.  Ineligible items are generally bulky, awkwardly sized items, those considered "oversize" by the carrier, or items with low values that inhibit our subsidy of the shipping cost.  Some examples of ineligible items include: Bulk sacks of grains or chemicals in their original 50 or 55 lb. bags, wine barrels larger than 5 gallons, beer keg systems, carboys and cases of beer and wine bottles. The shipping rate calculator on our shopping cart page will help you determine whether your order qualifies for free shipping.

Items too large for UPS or USPS mail will be palletized for shipment via motor freight truck.
