Home Brew store around Shreveport?
 
Hey gang,

are there ANY homebrew stores close to Shreveport? not liking what google's showing me, so i figure there might be something that's not really listed, if y'all know of anything that's not too too far out, please let me know!

Thanks!

Hi Kasrkin, Bob Carbone(pronounced Carboney) in Grand Cane has a small operation where he sells beer supplies and ingredients out of a shed at his house. it sounds kinda funny but it is a legit operation. He won AHA's gold medal in 2003 or something like that. I got the chance to try it while I was out there. It was quite amazing! Anyway look him up on google to get his number. He is a super nice guy and really knows his stuff. I emailed him a recipe and by the time I got there he had it all together and crushed the grains for me right there. Anytime I need something I try to go through him to support the local scene. Spread the word! :mug:

Do you guys have a name and ph.# for this place? I stopped by over at Bob's shop yesterday in Grand Cane and he told me that he shut the shop down jan. 1st...retired. Sad cause that was my closest HBS and he's a cool dude. He told me there was a shop in Shreveport but didnt have the number or adress at hand.


Thanks,
