I like the brew and grow on the north side, all the guys are HB'ers and they have samples in the shop. They have bags of 2row for 38 bucks. They have a big cooler just for yeast (new stock is in back of old) and another cooler for hops. I have been to lesser brew shops and this one is very good! Get some free coffee it is so good, it saves me a trip to starbucks.
