This is a nice place to shop. It has almost everything you could imagine you would ever need when you want to brew, distill, or make wine. The staff is very knowledgeable though sometimes they will not leave you alone to shop and may even try to influence your decision on what type of beer to make instead of just giving advice. Value is good compared to online stores even, especially since you do not have to pay shipping and you get to see what youíre buying before you buy it.

Owner is a very rude, angry man who seems to have contempt for anyone who has a problem. Iíve been in the store several times when the owner was there cussing loudly at someone on the phone while his employees looked on embarrassed and apologetic. I saw him cuss out a customer but not sure over what, but the customer stormed out, and once heard him saying really nasty things about someone he had a problem with. Fortunately I have never had an issue while there, Bob and the other staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, but they do talk about the owner behind his back and obviously donít like him. I avoid this place now and just buy elsewhere online mostly since there are no other homebrew stores in the Daytona area. Rather not risk a problem.

I love this place. Itís where I get all of my homebrew supplies. Dennis is so knowledgeable about anything to do with homebrew and you can tell he loves to talk about it. Everyone there is so helpful when youíre looking for anything to do with beer and wine making.
I spoke to the owner Joe about wine making and now Iím really interested in it.
