Kevin at Main Street is awesome and the store has it all. He is very helpful and friendly and you can get almost anything you need for brewing. If not he will order and is helpful in any questions. Both from the phone or over email kevin and his staff will help. The place can be a very busy place at times. Weekends are always packed. Good prices and parking out front or back is awesome. Worth the drive.

I have had nothing but great experiences from Main Street Homebrew Supply. I have worked with both Doug and Kevin in the store. They are always very helpful to us. I find their prices very competitive with the competition. And they have always been there to answer any questions that we had. We really appreciate all the help they have given some newbie brewers like us. We continue to visit them for all of our brewing needs.

This person needs 3 or more reviews on the site for their scores to start counting.

I had the misfortune to meet Kevin (the owner) after a recommendation. The majority of his products were not priced, what was priced was rather expensive, and he did not carry a few items I was looking for. After speaking with Kevin for less than 5 minutes, it was obvious he had an attitude problem. He talked down like I was stupid, his attitude was "I am better than any other brewer", and when I asked if he could order a product, he said "maybe you need to go somewhere else if you want that." First impression is a lasting impression. Kevin, is, without a doubt, the rudest, most arrogant jerk of a store owner I ever met. I pass out a competitors business card to every homebrewer I meet. Other review have said how helpful the staff is. They clearly did not talk to Kevin.

Update: I realize right after I wrote this, 2 people immediately wrote reviews and praised Kevin. After Brew Brothers in Hillsboro opened up, I had a talk with owners Jay and Chris, and I mentioned my experience with Kevin. Both men told me several other customers have also reported Kevin to be very rude and condescending to them. I have had other people say Kevin has "NEVER talked that way to customers". Well, if you aren't there when it happens, how would you know? Because I don't see a crime happen, does that mean it never happened?

I am definitely not the only person who he acted this way towards. If other people love him and think he's the best, then give him your money. I have visited about 9 brew stores and not one other place has treated me like Kevin did. I have questioned others stores about prices like I did with him, and none have ever said to take my business somewhere else, they just answer me.

I'm stunned the other reviewers say his prices are good. He is every bit as expensive as Steinbarts. Brew Brothers and Above The Rest are much cheaper. Main Street is definitely not cheap.

I'm glad Brew Brothers opened up to take business away from him.
