Bob can be rude usually, but is extremely helpful to newer brewers and can answer beginnerís questions quickly and informatively. Prices on instock items are good, but his helpfullness and willingness to order non-stocked items are off-set by the higher prices on ordered items. Definitely recommend for bulk grain purchases. Store is a little crowded and could use more storage, but hopefully him moving to a new location will fix this!

My local brewery supply store. Amazing selection. They usually have the difficult to find white labs yeast as well. Great and knowledgeable staff. Highly recommended.

If youíre a novice or a vetern brewer, this is the supplies spot in North Fulton or for Atlant for the matter. . .Bob and staff are knowledgable and very helpful. Quality and selection are par excellence ! I highly recommend this store.

Great store. The cost to brew has gone up, but that has nothing to do with this store. They have an amazing selection. They are always helpful, and donít try and persuade you to do anything. You go into the store and tell them what you want basically. I think if you went in there as a first time brewer they would be more than willing to help, but they assume you already know what you are doing, which is great. Some brew stores treat you like an idiot. The owner Bob is extremely nice. The other staff is very friendly and helpful. They have a great selection of hops considering the times. A few of there items are awkwardly priced, but I just go there for ingredients not supplies. I would recommend anyone in Atlanta to go to this place. I used to go to Just Brew It, but that is a one man operation, and there is a VERY limited selection compared to Beer Necessities.

I love the new location. BREW DEPOT. It is spacious and has just what Iím looking for. THIS IS MY HOMEBREW STORE. Bob is super helpful and extremely knowledgeable. I think Iím going there today... Plus there is a pretty good deli and Health food store that I always stop at on my trip.

The new store is well stocked, laid out neatly, and Bob and the rest of his staff are always ready to help. If you have a store like this near you, you are a lucky homebrewer.

Theyíre in a new location ... bigger, brighter, cleaner, and better stocked. Old place was dump, and this is a huge improvement. Old Alabama Connector/Mansell Rd. If you were turned off by the crew and ambiance of the old slum, might want to give them another try. If they donít succeed here, they need to find another line of work.

Bob and crew have always been more than helpful to me. I started homebrewing this December with a kit bought from their store. Since then I have done 5 brews and have worked up to partial extract/grain brews with liquid yeasts and added hops. As I said, the folks are always helpful and pleasant (employees and customers!)

Absolutely rude people. I couldnít believe how pompous the dude running this pig sty was. Stay away from this dude. I think he is the owner, but I could be wrong.
