Yes, Not only does he brew, but he has won many awards in my area!!! I guess if I'm looking at a recipe that calls for 1 cup of flour...I want 1 cup of Flour... not a 1/2 cup of flour and a half cup of something else... at least until I get decent at brewing!

I've been lucky to have an excellent homebrew store a few miles from my house. The owner is an award-winning brewer with a real knack for teaching, and explaining the whys and hows of brewing. I'll gladly support my local shop.

I purchase from both.

From the LHBS I purchase all my grain/yeast and 1 oz hop portions that I need for a batch and don't want to buy in bulk online. I also buy small items such as ball lock disconnects, irish moss, auto siphon, etc.

Online I purchase the more expensive items, such as hops in bulk and large/expensive items such as Perlick faucets/grain mill.

I support my LHBS as much as I can. They're nice people and I want them to stay in business. Their hop prices force me to buy those online though.
