You want it, they probably got it. This place has been in business forever, and supplies a number of smaller breweries, plus their mail order business. Very very knowledgeable staff. A central cog to the local brewing scene, especially home brewers.

A nifty place to be, busy as all hell on a Saturday though, and no good weekday hours. The staff can be really nice or kind of stuck up, depends, but they at least donít look down on women brewers. Good selection of organic hops and grains, wish they had the same for liquid malt.

Solid homebrew shop with a dedicated grain room and a fridge full of fresh Northwest hops. The folks in there were fun to talk to and eagerly helped me find a few items.

Great brewing store tucked away in SE PDX. Huge selection, good prices. The place to go for setting up and maintaining draft equipment. Some of the workers can be grumpy at times, but decent enough. Ambience is homebrew, nothing charming. Oregon brew crew meets here.

Iíve never been to their storefront but Iíve ordered from them several times. They are always fast and friendly and everything I get is cheap and fresh. Itís worth nothing that if youíre a homebrew sake maker in the US and want to make something even slightly resembling premium sake and not rotgut, THIS is the ONLY place to get it. Not only can you get polished Akita Matchi rice, which is milled down (seimaibuai) to 58-63% of its original size. This puts you in the range of tokubetsu or even ginjo. They also have ready made koji, using the same premium rice. These are both made by SakeOne out in Forest Grove, so itís a fairly decent product! So far Iíve found this is the only place in the US that you can order (as a consumer) milled sake rice. Order up a pack of wyeast sake yeast and all you need is water and nutrients to make a very fine sake. Read Fred Eckhardtís "New Sake Recipe" PDF if youíre interested.

Great homebrew store with about anything you could ever want to find. They have some old portland and NW beers that havenít been around for a long time for decoration, might be a cool place if you have a bottle collection to see. The people there can seem a bit unfriendly when you are new to the place, kinda assume you know what you are doing, even though every homebrew store does things a different way. I guess I will rate the selection based on the homebrew supplies, no beer on tap though.
