Great shop, good selection, knowledgeable staff. I have never gone in looking for something and had them not have it. My husband tells me that they are also willing to order things for you if you need something that they donít carry. They have their own little competitions now and then and teach classes too. Check the website before you go as sometimes they close for a couple days. Thanks, Ed!

I truly wish i lived closer to this great homebrew shop. Ed (the owner) is a siebel grad who really knows his stuff, not to mention heís super cool and always has a homebrew on tap. The selection is second to none, and if youíre just starting out, or getting in to kegging this is a great place to get the equipment and have someone knowledgeable explain the basics to you.

A small homebrew shop in downtown St. Charles, blocks away from my house. On the plus side, they have a very extensive selection of kits. On the downside, I find the owner/operator to be intimidating, and the kit prices are high, as compared to other area home brew shops.

Absolutely *love* this place! Fairly extensive selection of everything you need for homebrewing & wine making. Shop owner is always glad to share advice & suggestions. Entire staff is very well versed in making everything from beer to mead to wine. Not the easiest to spot as youíre driving by, but they are the best, hands down!!!

The shop is not much too look at from the outside, but once you get inside, expect to find a wide array of equipment and supplies to brew everything from wine and beer. I even heard them giving advice on how to brew a mead while I was in the store.
The amount of brewing equipment was well above average. The amount of malt and hops they had to offer seemed fairly extensive. Since Iím still brewing from extract and kits, I was actually looking for those, and found a number, but could have hoped for a bit more. Still this is the best homebrew store Iíve found so far in the Western Chicago Suburbs.
