I do, actually I prefer shopping online, but I am too new at brewing to trust my own judgement. I know one or two beers - both commercial. We have a LHBS in the town that I live in, but they only have a few things and mostly caters to wine making. It's a clothing, sporting, camping high end store, and their focus is not on homebrewing so the last few times I tried to go in there I was always greeted with 'we're out, I can order it for ya" yada, yada.

I discovered this other shop down south of Birmingham that is 100% to homebrew and wine. It's like shopping at a super center compared to what is offered here locally.

It's nice to go talk shop, get their insight on recipes. Everything is freshly made up at the time of your order, so all in all, I guess occasionally it's worth the drive. I don't mind supporting brick and mortar stores who takes care of their customers. Just wished they were closer. Lol
