Pretty much the only place around to buy homebrew supplies unless youíre up for a couple hour drive. Itís good enough, thereís decent turnover so grain doesnít get stale. The hops selection changes a lot, theyíll wait until the cooler is nearly empty before restocking so itís a good idea to buy what you want when you see it and keep it in your own fridge. Lots of different bottles for sale. Supplies for winemaking too, although I donít know anything about that, there are corks and foils etc.. Lots of beer and wine kits, which is probably the way to go unless you know what you want. Itís hit or miss whether youíll find the staff helpful, there isnít a full time beer person.

This is a health food store and homebrew shop that stocks a pretty good selection of micro brews and imported beers. For the central Maine area, this store has a good selection, without all of the macros getting in the way. Itís also a great place for beer and winemaking supplies.
