Default Best online retailers for NJ area?

Hi everybody,

I just moved to NJ a little over a month ago for grad school. I'm in Montclair and don't have a car, so I was wondering what online retailers people use. I don't really need recipe ingredients at the moment because I have bulk grain and some hops, but I need some bottlecaps and star san, maybe some yeast soon. Any recommendations?

Thanks all!

Morebeer recently opened a warehouse in Pennsylvania. I bought some ingredients from them and got them within a week even using the free shipping. They don't carry everything however, some things have to come from California. Not sure about yeast.

If you are in Montclair, you can take the train to South Orange and go to the Gaslight brew pub, they sell homebrew equipment (at least they used to) or take the train to Boonton and walk up the hill a bit to Cask and Kettle.

Cool, thanks for the suggestions guys. They all sound like good ideas to me! Is the Gaslight brew pub worth checking out for the beer and food too?

I honestly have never been there, but I have heard good things. It is literally right off the train which is a plus.

love2brew is an NJ based company who sells from their warehouse either in person or online. They ship free on many things over 75 bucks too.

If you want to check them out

I've been going there pretty much since they opened up and have always been happy. They're also the only place you can order East Coast Yeast online and get it shipped anywhere.

I know you said you don't have a car, but check this place out: http://www.gaslightbrewery.net/u-brew/

I also recently moved to NJ and was disappointed with my LHBS, so i've been ordering from MoreBeer and Northern Brewer. MoreBeer has the fastest shipping.

Were you going to Brewer's Apprentice?

Yeah, but i've recently been using them more often. They're really friendly and they'll get whatever you need, as long as you call ahead or stop in, they can order it for you. Their prices are good, I just picked up a 50lb sack of 2-row from them and 5lbs of rye. I'll call ahead now, but sometimes I feel bad taking most of their stock of specialty grains.

Backstory: I moved up here from Virginia Beach about a year and a half ago. I was used to my LHBS down there where they had bulk amounts of pretty much any grain you could possibly need, and had a really nice updated and printed out list of everything they had in stock. You could take the list, select the grains, hops, yeast, adjuncts and any extras you needed. Put weight required and whether or not you wanted it crushed and/or separated from the other grains along with addition times for your hop amounts and they would package it all up for you. I got to know the guys that worked in there and I would tweak recipes with them and help them package the grain bill most the time.

First time I walked into BA with a recipe in hand, they took a look at the list and had most of it, but said they could order it, and told me to call ahead next time. It just seemed like they catered more for extract brewers and their brew-on-premise customers. Which makes sense if that's where they get their business, just not what I was expecting.

For the record: I like BA and have been using them more often... If you're new to brewing it's probably the best place around to go and get started.
