Visited October 5, 2013 with adneilson and womencantsail.

This is located next door to Equinox Brewing. Itís a smallish homebrew store with a good selection of grains but also had a lot of extracts/juices. They seem to focus as much on wine as on beer. They have all the standard White Labs yeasts and a few of the bacteria strains. The employees were helpful and answered my questions. Prices were about average. Not a very large store and they donít have as much equipment as some stores do but it seems like a nice enough place to go if you live in the area.

Located right next door to Equinox Brewing. Stopped in to see what they had. Pretty tiny shop. Solid selection of grains and yeast. Hop selection seemed okay. Decent amount of equipment, but not as much as Iíve seen at a lot of other stores. Staff seemed decently knowledgeable.

Small little brew shop directly connected to Equinox. Very helpful and friendly staff who are always available to answer your questions. This place helped me get started brewing in college and further my knowledge about the brewing process. They have pretty much anything you could need to brew great beer from equipment to ingredients and if they donít have it, they will get it for you. Great homebrew shop.

Nice brewing shop with everything Iíve ever needed for brewing. The staff is very helpful, though they can get busy with other customers. Right next to Equinox.

So great to have a homebrew beer and wine supplies store back in FC! This small (quaint) store gets big props for excellent and knowledgable service. Colin is a former brewer at Midnight Sun in Alaska and is always willing to share his knowledge. They have a great selection of most varieties of grains, yeast strains, and hops as well as the equipment to get you going. They have organized several brewing contests in conjunction with the local breweries (where first place gets you brewmaster for the day; we got 3rd with our Alt LT) and have really helped bring the local brewing population together again in the short time that they have been here. Thanks!
