Located at the corner of Arrow Highway and Fairplex/E St behind the Fairplex and across the street from Fairplex Liquor and El Merendero (good Mexican food).
Been open about a year now. Still a pretty small operation (back to one employee currently). Sean is a nice guy that can order most of what you need but just doesnt carry some of the things (a lot of the specialty things) that Iíve looked for. That being said heís got plenty of malt, yeast, and hops so if you already have your equipment then you should be fine.
Give it another year and heíll be competing with some of the better homebrew stores. I know there was talk early on about applying to be a brewery so that he could do some on premise brewing for customers. Who knows if thats still in the works but it could make it a ticking destination as well.
