Default Manhattan Lhbs kind of

I went to the farmers market in Manhattan the other day and found this guy. http://www.jwlcraftbrewing.com/ He has a homebrew shop in Lawrence ks, and comes to the farmers market every other week. You can even order online and check the box that says pick up at farmers market and cod.

I thought it was worth a share.

Live in Lawrence and have been to their shop a lot. Their yeast and hop selection is amazing for being a small shop in town. Too bad I cut WAY back on drinking, and thus way back on brewing, otherwise I'd buy more stuff from them.

Today I called to place an order and their message said they were out of business. Anyone know what happened?

Oh you gotta be kidding me! I just converted an AG barleywine recipe to partial mash today and tried to order up some stuff. On their website I couldn't get to any products. I thought maybe they were just having website issues.

They closed up shop without telling anyone in the Lawrence Brewers Guild. Not really sure what happened, but I'd imagine just not getting a lot of business.

FYI, there's a new LHBS opening in Topeka as well called Downtown Craft Brewing I think. I'd link the facebook page but FB is blocked here at work.

Down town craft brew is open today! I am driving down after work today and will report back as to how much they have/offer. It doesnt look like they let you custom make a grain bill, but we will see!

I just got back from there. It might be a little hard to see it because he really has no sign out front. Just painted on a dark window. I walked right by it. But it is literally right on the corner of 4th & Kansas.
He has a good selection for just opening but he was already out of a few things I wanted to buy (Amber DME, S04 yeast, fermcap). He was already making a list of things he was out of and things people were asking for and said he would have them this week. He will let you create a grainbill and will mill them for you with no Mill charge!
Its really going to be nice to have a store like this in the area. I really hope people support him and it is around for a long time!!!
