    Seemed to be more opinion than fact.
    They're having a sale, and the person who wrote the article just floated the idea that they may go out of business
    I wouldn't worry too much about it

    I didn't see anywhere on the homebrewsupply website where product lines were being discontinued. (Not that I did a thorough search.) Some email was cited in the article you linked. I did see a new products category.

    More of that (I'm a journalist, in america, i can make shit up so more people read my article.)

    Word of advice:
    Believe nothing of what you hear, and only some of what you see.

    In that case, they aren't a journalist.
    I make beer at home, by no means am I a professional brewer

    the article explains everything, first its a blog not news, getting rid of slow moving merchandise and not restocking those items, the article asks are they going out of business not telling you they are, nobody replied lol

    as far as the company, the owner of this company partnered with them when they got started not the other way around, brewers friend has been solid and popular for many years and will continue

    Yep, way back then. But then, my first real computer was a 386, 20 mb hard drive and, wait for it, 2 mb of RAM!

    I don't know about other businesses, but Brewer's Friend is committed to continuing our software. We are working on new features right now, and bringing enhancements out as often as we can (like the diastatic power calculation being added). We're solid.
