MWBC ending online engraving orders March 31

Midwest Barrel Co.

A note to engraving customers:

 

Effective March 31, 2022, Midwest Barrel Co. will no longer be selling our engraved barrel products (or other engraved items) on our website, Amazon or Etsy.

The core of our business has always been selling full size and small format barrels to beverage producers. We are passionate about this business and it has exploded in growth over the last couple of years. At the same time, it has made effectively servicing our personalized customers much more challenging and if we are going to do something, we must do it well.

Why we made this decision

Since we began offering engraved products, our team has worked on countless items ranging in size from bungs to full-size barrels. Of course, the projects we’ve enjoyed the most are the beautiful, personalized designs that our customers dreamed up and our artists helped bring to life.

Ending our engraving operations was not an easy decision to make, and was one that we had long debated. However, the barrel-aging industry and MWBC are both growing at a rapid pace. With that growth in mind, we decided that now is the time to focus our team’s efforts on areas where our potential is highest. That includes providing premium used wine and bourbon barrels to our commercial brewing and homebrew customers, as well as placing an emphasis on our barrel BBQ smoking wood.

In addition, MWBC will continue to provide decor and furniture grade barrels and barrel parts for DIY decor and art projects on our website, midwestbarrelco.com, as well as on Amazon and Etsy.

Finally, thank you to all who have ordered engraved barrel items from us. We appreciate your business and you allowing us to be part of that experience with you.

 

Cheers,

Jess Loseke, Ben Loseke & the Midwest Barrel Co. Team
