After recently moving to the area, I stopped in for the first time with expectations of a porthole into the local homebrewing community. Didn't really happen. The owner was a bit offstandish, at best. Unfriendly is not something I'm used to with beer folk.

There was a decent selection of beer and wine goodies, but the yeast selection was way slim on the day of my visit. I had to substitute for both of the beers I had planned. I thought 1028 was a fairly commonly used yeast. Not sure about the grains, as they were all in the back of the store, where he milled my grain for me, based on the list I had. I'm starting to question whether he gave me what I had written down, as the sample I took yesterday of the stout I brewed was lighter than I was looking for. I could also see that the mill was set a little wider than I'm used to. Figured I'd miss my OG, but not enough to complain about. On the plus side, they also sell gourmet coffees, but I didn't see any green beans, and didn't ask with that need not on my mind on this visit.

AFTER my visit, I saw some reviews elsewhere that shared my impressions of the guy's attitude toward customer service. With the ease of Internet beer shopping, it's tough to give this guy my business, however much I want to "keep it local." But it's an hour and a half drive for me, so...
