Remodeled a couple months back and moved about 90% of their beers into coolers. Pretty decent selection. Taproom has mostly locals with an occasional decent beer on tap. Most of the time I check the tap list and move on. The gem of this place is the homebrew supplies. Great selection of specialty grains with the option of buying a virtual bag pretty cheap. Plenty of brew kettles, kegging supplies, and the just about anything you would need to homebrew. The true downfall of this place is a staff that is sometimes oblivious of what they have or really much knowledge of the homebrew products they sell. It pretty atrocious actually and the owner really needs to address this.

This is a good bottleshop option for me, a little further west and not too far from several of the local brewpubs. Prices are on par with the valley, maybe a touch lower. Selection is good and a mixed-six option is there. Not sure on the draft beer, looked like they had 10-12 taps, but on my first visit they were monkeying around and had it pretty well torn apart. My only negative would be the serviceÖ they didnít seem to notice I was there (and I took my time looking around) or offer much of a welcome at the register. **Follow up visits revealed there is a 10% discount when you purchase any six beers, which is sweet. I also discovered the price tag doesnít always match what comes up at the register... hopefully this isnít a common issue.

Not sure what to say about this place. I stop there fairly frequently. But have been VERY disappointed lately. Old bottles by the cases on warm shelves... Lately I have been on a Belgian style kick and have not had a decent bottle from HBS. Avery Reverend, Midnight Sun Fallen Angel, couple different Lost Abbey brews ALL were way oxidized messes ... Let alone the 1 year old Midnight Sun DIPA I should have researched before buying. If you KNOW what you are buying is fresh, then you can get a good beer at a good price. Tap beers donít rotate that quickly either... Service is iffy... I watched one of the guys there tell somebody a Chapeau Banana was a good lambic... and a different time one guy described an Imperial Pilsner like a "full bodied Coors"... No shit. I know they are a homebrew shop predominantly, but buyer beware on any help from the salesmen on the bottled beer.

Found this by accident while out running errands. Nice surprise of bottles foreign and domestic, and some from outside the NW area. Clearance shelf with some real bargains. Iíll be back for sure.

Not a ton of bottles, but a nice selection of unusual ones. Excellent selection of HB equipment. Prices are fair. A few taps. and BTW, creating an account rating a place and never coming back is suspicious at the least.

Great place lots of homebrew supplies and good selection of bottles. They donít get a ton of traffic so it seems a lot of bottles stick around for a while. You can find some gems in this place for sure.

Very helpful staff, they definitely know their beer. Good place to get ingredients and sit and have a pint.
