I use my LHBS, I have used adventures in homebrewing & Midwest, Midwest seems to have the best prices but I'm gonna check out the other sites listed here maybe I'll change.

Does Northern Brewer follow the same policies as Midwest? I know there is some business arrangement between the two but the correspondence listed on reddit is from Midwest. It would probably be best to contact NB directly if you want their say in the matter.

In any event, to answer your original question, MoreBeer encourages truthful reviews. Here is an example of what I mean. Here is their review policy:

Quote:
We invite truthful, honest reviews and will do our best to publish them within 48 hours as long as they adhere to the review policy. If your issue requires our customer service agents to help you, please call 800-600-0033 or email info@moreflavor.com.

Reviews must pertain to the product you are reviewing.
No profanity or abusive language.
No use of websites or other business names in reviews.

You must be logged in to post a product review.
They also have two shipping locations, one in CA and one in PA so they can accommodate orders from the East and West Coast quickly.

Made the same point myself. Their PA location must not be too far from NE OH, since I ordered in the afternoon before 5PM & it was on my porch EARLY the next morning! Fresh, undamaged etc. I've also been saving the gel ice packs they all use for shipping liquid yeasts. I'm going to find some sort of elastic belt to use 3 or 4 of them frozen, strapped to my FV to keep temps down covered with a tee shirt. I'll see how that works out. Just gotta collect up 6-8 of them so they can be rotated.

I was just about to place an order with Austin and then changed my mind. I wanted to try some different brews and the reviews, good or bad, are all listed as four stars. They deleted my order history and all the reviews are from the same date 2-11-14 (the same date they changed their website). I can't recommend them anymore. I like Brewmaster's warehouse, but would like a suggested hop schedule. Time to look around.

I have used Morebeer and I was always treated very well and they answered my beginner questions as well. But I would bye things local.

I do get some things locally, but they have an odd grain brand. But everything else is the same, comparably priced to internet price + shipping.
