Visited this place the other day, as its on my way home.

Much cleaner and roomier than other shops in the area, and the owner is a super nice guy. I guess he used to be the head brewer at Boston Beer Works in Fenway.

Will be heading back here again for sure.

Another thumbs up for the guy, Josh, who runs this shop. I spent 20 minutes or so picking his brain on Friday after work. He seems like a great guy. Josh used to be a teacher before getting into beer and as such, hopes to do some more advanced classes for homebrewers, particularly on water chemistry. I told him it was a great idea.

I like the gravity feed system that they have for the grain. It works much better than Hopsters gravity feed setup (at least from what I remember when I visited there) and Modern Homebrew doesn't have one at all.

I can't comment on the selection or pricing, because I was there for very specific local ingredients in Four Star hops and Valley Malt, so they were going to be priced higher than normal grains anyways.
