Read a bunch of reviews saying that place is really bad. Never been, so might have to stop in and see for myself.

If you can get up north to Flagstaff there are a few nice micos to tour and sample!

Been shopping there for all of my supplies for several years. George and Nancy are legends. Friendly, helpful and enough brewing knowledge and know how to fill volumes of reference books. They are pretty well known, and their reputation is solid in the Philly beer scene! Just picked up supplies to do an Imperial Red IPA.

It's kills me how much cheaper beer is here in Phoenix. We stopped at BevMo today (a local chain beer/wine/liquor outlet) and got 8 22oz bottles of great craft beer for under $50. The Johnstown and local PA alcohol taxes are ridiculous. The same bottles in PA of some stuff were $3-4 cheaper here. They had Stone Vertical Epic for $5/bottle. Ugh..... I hate PA so much.

They are really friendly and knowledgeable. A little on the pricey side but I would definitely go back. The restaurant next door is really good by the way (Melograno). I am going to try to take the Mrs on a Wednesday when HSHB is open late

wow, it sucks to be back in PA! So much nicer out in HI. Did manage to brew a beer with the BIL while we were out there though. Nice hoppy pale ale, much to his liking.. Too bad I won't be there when it's time to try it!

So anyone here headed up to WOTW this weekend? Think the wife is headed to the Pocono's for a friends birthday party, so I have the weekend to myself.

I'm not going to make it to WOTW this weekend, I did submit 2 beers though. Instead I am just going to take a little old trip to Brussels and Brugge for a few days, ho-hum. I leave tomorrow night, cant wait.

Over the river and through the woods.

Plan on being there. Always a good time.
