Homebrew shop near Hoboken, NJ?
 
Hi,

I will be traveling to Hoboken next month and I am planning on picking up some Corny Kegs, a malt mill and other stuff while I am there.

Can anyone recommend a good homebrew shop near Hoboken?

You can take a trip into Brooklyn - http://www.brooklyn-homebrew.com

Haven't been there so I can't vouch for what they carry, but you can give em a call before you head over.

When I was in Jersey I went here a few times:
Corrado's Family Affair

It's not IN Hoboken, but like everything in New Jersey, it's just a hop up the GSP.

Last time I was there was probably five years ago and they were in the middle of renovating, but their prices were pretty good and their selection was enormous.

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll have to check these stores out.

Oops, sorry I should have checked out the link myself! Did you try to call the guy? :

"Hello"
"Hello"
"Are you the former brewmaster for this defunct website in Hoboken NJ?"
"Er, yes, er... I used to be"
"Do you know of any good local HB stores?"

:)

Corrado's
 
I work in Passaic, which is about 10 minutes from Corrado's. Didn't even know it was there, and stumbled upon it during lunch one day. I though I struck gold. They look impressive when you walk in, but they lean heavily on home wine making, so the beer area is deceiving. Once I dug around a bit, I thought their prices were through the roof, even compared to the only other HBS around (the brewer's apprentice) which is in Freehold; easily a 90 minute drive from Hoboken. Service at Corrado's leaves something to be desired as well, which should be a HB shop's biggest hook. Honestly, neither place will do you any favors, but I think the guys in Freehold try harder. My suggestion, order whatever you need from Northern Brewer or BMW and bring it with you. Those guys are just in a different league. I do not expect a storefront to compete with internet prices, but they do need to be in line. Drop ship to your destination if you must, it will still be cheaper.

Thanks for the info Joe! I was afraid that my best option would be to order online. Sorry for the newbie question but what is BMW?
