Decent Homebrew store near the Bruery. Fair prices, decent parking. A little bit hard to see from the road (tucked in to a small industrial park). I was in mainly looking for hops. They had 1 of the 2 varieties I was looking for, but they did have a decent selection including some lesser used NZ hops. They seemed to only sell hops in 2oz increments. White Labs is the sole yeast lab they carry at the moment. Not a bad shop. Friendly service.

Pretty solid homebrew store and really the only game in town. They have pretty much all the basics, but some of the less popular items arenít always in stock. That said, if you ask Eric to get something, he will order it for you. Prices are pretty good for a mom-and-pop type place, but not super cheap. The ingredients are pretty much always fresh and are well kept. Eric is a really friendly guy and always likes to talk brewing and beer.

Havent been in a while but went a number of times during their first year in business. This was shortly after the Bruery closed down their Provisions homebrew store so it was convenient that this place opened a mile or so down the road.
It suffers from the same problem that a lot of homebrew stores opening on a small budget have: they dont have a ton of inventory. That and they cant compete price-wise with More Beer. Eric is an avid homebrewer and has some good advice but a lot of things just arent in stock. Oh well. As his business grows heíll be able to carry more stuff.
