Default LHBS Website: Feedback Requested

I design websites for a living and one of my latest clients is my local home brew store. His site is at www.kirksbrew.com and I would appreciate your feedback on the site.

The project included redesigning the logo and the design/layout of the site, adding a blog where he can share his thoughts on brewing (he's been home brewing for almost 30 years!), and adding an online store.

I really like how it turned out but I would appreciate hearing what others think. I also like that I got a bunch of "store credit" out of the deal so I was able to get a kegging set up with two Cornys!

Thanks for your feedback. I appreciate it.

Looks good. The new logo is really well done. The site is a breeze to navigate and not too flashy like alot of other sites I visit

Looks good. I just looked around a little, but it's nice and clean.

Good looking website. It navigates pretty well and isn't too cluttered. Good job. On a side note, you don't really pay $9 for yeast do you?

Using Firefox. Looks nice and clean.


The link for "Briess Malt Extracts - American Made and Fresh!" The word "Fresh" is partially hidden:

Great navigation, easy to use, looks very professional! Constructive criticism: I would use less pictures of boxes, say for example the starter kit, actually show pics of the kit's components as opposed to the box. Same goes for the recipe kits, maybe a pic of the style of beer or the malt or something. Also (sorry to for all the comments), I think it should be more explicitly stated whether the kits are extract, all-grain, or available in both.

The recipe kits tab is a little much. Other than that it's pretty usable.

Great job. It's easy to navigate through and like others have said, it looks very clean - like a homebrew shop should.

I like it. Nice and clean. Good job. I agree with Ernst-Haeckel about pictures though. It would be nice to see what you get in a starter equipment kit.
