"Thanks again for being so great to work with! I've been telling every brewer and potential brewer about Ruby Street. One guy asked me, "Why did you buy the Ruby Street? This other system is cheaper." I told him that it was because your turnaround time was faster and more importantly, I was able to speak with YOU, and you and your staff have provided great support, and unlike others, you never make me feel stupid. Refreshing."

"Dear Ruby Street, When our seven barrel system didn’t arrive on time, and wouldn’t for another two months your company saved our bacon.  We purchased the Alpha Ruby from you and some plastic fermenters online. The Alpha showed up in four days and we started brewing our butts off. Thanks for the outstanding product.
