I got my start with a kit from here and did my first 40 or so batches using ingredients purchased here as well. The owner and staff are all really nice and what they may lack in beer knowledge they make up for in attitude and friendly service. They carry about 15 or so grains and several extracts both in bulk and the canned variety. They have a decent selection of hops, adjuncts, and both dry and liquid yeast as well. As has been mentioned by other reviewers this shop is geared more towards wine making but they do have all of the basics both in equipment and ingredients for the novice to intermediate home brewer. Given the bad rap a lot of brew shops get this one is pleasant and worthy of my business.

Visited on a recent Wednesday afternoon. Cozy little homebrew shop with lots of beer and wine fermenting inside. Nice selection of everything, from what I could tell. Staff seemed knowledgeable and helpful. Managed to spend a decent chunk of change on supplies both equipment and kits. Their hops were cheaper than other shops in the area. Worth a stop.

A great small little place for the beginner. Most of the space is geared towards winemaking, with brewing being secondary. Good basic selection, but often the yeast and hop choices are limited. Very friendly service, and very accommodating and helpful.

The store is located in a trailer with mostly wine supplies but they do have almost all the necessities of beer making including a few books and additives. A decent place to get what you need considering there isnít much in the area.

Great brewshop in Pinellas Park. Friendly service and if they are busy and canít help you right away, they give you a homebrew. Good selection of malts, grains, hops and yeast. A must stop for the homebrewer.

This is a really nice shop if your just getting in to the homebrew scene (as i am) I went in there with nothing more then a slight idea of what it all involed, and the nice people there got me all the stuff i would need, and help me through what the process would be. Seemed like they had a good bit of supplies and what not, and again the service was great. Hopefully they will start to give more of the space in the building to brewing, as most of it is geared toward wine making presently.

Cool little family owned type of place. I notice that they almost seem to specialize in Extract brewing, many different types Iíve never seen. But they were really lacking on grains big time. It does look like more of a wine place there must have been 30 carboys of wine sitting around. They have a great selection of hops pretty much all of it being available in pellets and whole leaf which is great, they carry Wyeast & White Labs. They also ship! So hereís the rundown I will get my Whole Leaf Hops and Wyeast here, but will definitely continue to get my grains, pellets, and White Labs from Brew Shack.

This homebrew shop is very active considering this is Florida, land of the macro brew (generally Floridians donít like beer, they prefer Bud). This place tends to have more wine brewing enthusiasts than beer. No matter. So long as they can stay profitable. As far as I know there is really nowhere else to go for supplies locally. They have three or more bulk extract selections and an adequate variety of specialty grain, hops and yeast. Some stuff can be dated so I pay particular attention to packaging dates. They certainly canít carry everything so be prepared for ingredient alternatives. If youíre in western Hillsborough or Pinellas county and are interesting in getting into homebrewing this place is essential. Stop by and let these nice people guide you through the wonders of brewing. It really is easier than you think. Hey, I can do it.
