Default How close is your (L)HBS

My closest HBS is 2.5 hours away and was wondering how many other people do not have a LHBS?

Bummer. As often as I seem to forget stuff, I'd be screwed if my LHBS was 2.5 hours away. I think we have three total, but I only use two regularly. One is about 15 minutes away from my work and the other is about 20 minutes from my house.

Let's see- it's about 150 miles away but it's really small so I don't go very often. I go to Northern Brewer and/or Midwest about once a year- (300 miles to Minneapolis).

Four hours one way. I do not go often, and never the only reason. However when I do go I really stock up.

Since I've been staying at my dad's place in Michigan, the brew shop is about a mile and a half away. AND it's a good shop with a lot of variety (except in the hop dept. for some reason). Not bad.

When I was still in Arizona, I had to drive a couple hours to get to a shop.
