I live equidistant from the Quad Cities and Galesburg, but I definitely go to Jim and Pat at Somethings Brewn for my homebrew supplies because it’s a great place.

The ambiance is quite nice. It’s a small, comfy and cozy little place in downtown Galesburg and there’s nothing but homebrew stuff all over the place. It’s fun to juts go in and look around.

The service is excellent! Jim and Pat are both experienced homebrewers, are very involved in the QC homebrew club, and they are extremely friendly, nice, and helpful. Once they were out of the size of carboy I wanted so Pat actually went and took a glass carboy out of one of the pre-fab kits so that I could have one - how great is that?

The selection is pretty good. You’re going to find your essentials for sure and even plenty of books. They have full all-grain kits to parts to ingredients to just about anything. They even have wine racks, goofy shirts and glasses, paraphernalia, etc.

The value isn’t bad. Most things are comparatively priced to online homebrew stores, though sometimes a touch more expensive. The small price raise is expected though because it’s a small store. It’s usually not a big enough raise in price that it’s more expensive than paying shipping for online stuff, though!

Overall, I’ve been here many times and have always enjoyed my experience - be it purchasing items, just chatting brew with them or whatever, it’s all good!

This store is a jewel for an area like this, or any area for that matter. Great service, excellent selection of homebrew supplies and Jim and Mary will special-order anything you can dream up.

Have to agree, best shop for the homebrewer in west central Illinois, much better than Friar Tuck in Peoria. The owners, Jim & Pat Smith, are knowledgeable in all areas of homebrewing and are eager to help. Great place for equipment, bottles and supplies. Can do special orders. Also carry how-to and recipe books, as well as brewery glassware and paraphernalia. Easy to find, next to UPS Store in downtown Galesburg.

The best homebrew and wine supply shop in western Illinois. Staff is great. There is usually some homebrew behind the counter that they are anxious for you to try. These guys love what they do, and it shows.
