Weird, Iím fairly certain that I rated this previously. Pretty barebones place with good prices. This is where I bought my first sets of equipment and supplies and have been back. Stuff is pretty fresh and in good shap. Donít need go out to here anymore, but itís worth a stop.

Went here last Saturday (chicago really needs more homebrew shops). Iím new to brewing (new years resolution), the place was small but overwelming. They had everything I was looking for (hydrometer, thermostat, mesh sacks, irish moss, lots of matls, lots of hops and yeasts. Very helpful workers and easy to find things. Dont really have anything to compare this store with but looks to be a great place.

Well, most homebrew shows canít offer much in the way of "ambience," this oneís focus on winemaking meant lots of wooden equipment like barrels, presses and bung taps, offering a bit of a rustic feel. Beerwise I note they had a Bayou Classic burner on the shelf, and Iíve rarely seen shops with burners on display. Also a good supply of reconditioned corny kegs at $40 each (Iíve seen íem go cheaper when they get a big shipment). Good collection of packaged homebrew kits, the usual grains Ė hops not on display, but there was no cooler in the front, probably in the back. Iíve so far just gotten yeast and some stoppers for that mead Iíve kept saying Iím making, but Iíll check this place again.
