We live up in Bowie (so her commute sucks

It's not a bad little store, they have pretty much everything you'd want as far as supplies and ingredients, but their prices are on the high end and some people have complained their recipes are "proprietary" (they'll sell you a kit but won't tell you what's in it.
I've had good luck buying odds and ends or a mixed grain bill from them though, and in a pinch it's faster than waiting for crap from online, though SOMD is a bit far to just drop in.
