I must say as a patron of Art’s I am slightly offended by seanosean’s review. Art’s brewing supplies are the freshest I have ever used, I have order online and gone to the Beer nut and everything I got was old and flavorless. Art truly enjoys brewing beer and teaching others the art of it. His prices are the best you can get, his knowledge is unmatched and he is all around a great man, not "creepy" by any means. The fact that it is in old house makes it a great and friend atmosphere. Everyone in the greater Salt Lake area should shop at Art’s.

It is easy for anyone to say anything about anyone on the internet with out proof. Retso I told not to come in my shop because he is abusive and slanderous. I would not believe anything he said. In his last email he said his name was Paul and he lives at 8496 South Harrison #113 come down and his cleaners will clean the shit off the floor. I am purely heterosexual and have no interests in children or animals sexually. Gays are welcome here. Retso is so smart he even knows what my dogs are thinking. He told me in an email not related to the business that he was going to destroy my business. Want to see the emails, I will show them to you. Sorry Sean Osean I love dogs and will have them and have had them all my life. They are my kids. Sean is right that the shop is dusty; we have a lot of grain cracked here. We have the only 3 roller mill in the state and that gives the best crack I have seen in the 25 years I have been in business. We have the largest selection and freshest ingredients in the state for those that like selection. My supplies are the freshest. Why? I turned 2/3 of the basement into refrigeration system that takes moisture out of the grain and keeps it cool, which is the best way to store the grain, syrups and extracts. I was the first to freeze my hops, refrigerate yeast, and the only shop to refrigerate my extracts syrups and grains. I have tried to make the best shop. As far as being creepy that is your opinion, but I think you are both creepier, a bigot and prejudice against old people. I am not sorry I do not dress to your standards, I wear clean clothes everyday. Please you 2 do not call, come in or email me. Rate beer did not return my email calling for the removal of Retso and Sean’s post because it goes way beyond a critique and are malicious and slanderous. They are both liars and would be happy to go to court and take their money unless they have proof, in which case come and get my money guys. I guess rate beer does not care what slanderous and malicious things are said on their site. I give “rate beer” an F for failure to answer even an email about what I believe is a serious problem that I brought to their attention. Art, Art’s Brewing Supplies since 1987

Best kept secret in homebrewing in Utah. Art has a bigger selection and is about 25% cheaper than the Beer Nut. Also extremely knowledgeable.

Arts is an experience!
Hidden back off the main streets. It is in an old house. Prices are good. Art is passionate about homebrew and will talk your ear off if you give him a chance. A nice guy and very helpful.

Finding it in a back alley should have been the first warning, the chain link and twin dobermans and security cameras should have been the second, finding a dusty homebrew store in a converted house with a scruffy creepy old guy at the desk (that doubles as the counter) should have been the signal to run like hell. I almost bought a bottle of sanitizer just to clean the package of malt extract I picked up, my hands and maybe the walls as well. It’s cheap, and because it aint the Beer Nut (Salt Lake’s other miserable homebrew option) is the only reason any one would ever want to go there. The selection is old, out dated and you get the sneaky feeling probably illegal and ill-advised outside Mexico/FDA supervision. The guy wants to make a buck, which is fine, but wear some damned pants and a clean t-shirt if you want to make a sale ! I have to say, the hops growing on the chainlink (see dobermans before you get any ideas) was a nice touch, but it gives you a good idea where his supplies come from.
