Default Seattle Home Brew Store

Hey all, I just moved to Seattle and am looking for peoples opinions on where to go and which is the best store. I am not really interested in ordering online so I would much prefer a local store. Thanks all!

Where in Seattle are you? Even though I live downtown, I go to Mountain Homebrew and Wine Supply in Kirkland. They have the best selection and John, the owner is a good friend. Bob's Homebrew Supply north of the U-District is good too. If your in the south end, be sure and check out Larry's Brewing Supply in Kent. If you are downtown, you can go to Market Cellar Winery and homebrew supply on Western Ave near Pike Place Market. It's very small but works if you need something in a pinch.

What part of town are you in?
There are a few other major ones in town, I truly like them all better than Cellar,
one has a great website, one has a piss poor website (but the store is awesome) and
one has no website at all.

The real factor for you, as they are all pretty good, will probably be convenience, which is why I ask where you are located. Three of them are convenient to me, one is the most convenient, and that is the one I use the most, but honestly, the one I just like the most.

Hey all, I live in Queen Anne. So near downtown is best, but I will drive to get what I need if I must. I do not all grain, but do partial mashes so access to a good grain assortment is a plus. Thanks again!

Thanks guys,.. I messed up on picking up supplies yesterday at Bob's and didn't realize it till I opened my one can of extract. I needed two and it was past closing.

I'll stop by Market or Larry's.

Nice google map.

I used The Cellar for a long time and recently found Bob's.
Bob's is cleaner by far. The Cellar is dirty, oddly laid out and just seems not as professional to me. They have most of the stuff you might need and they are friendly enough though.

There is a really good collection of home brew stores in the area. This area is mega home brew friendly. I have been to several. The one I use most is Mountain Home Brew as it is well stocked, friendly staff, and conveinent to my work commute. Bobs is a neat place. The Cellar is cool as well although a bit disorganized.
You can find good lists at two places:
Yelp
Home brew Seattle | Yelp

and the Washington Homebrewers Association (WAHA) which also provides info on local brewing clubs
