I also heard he is starting a brewpub, but will be keeping the store next door. I only go down there if I need something fast. Larry is a nice guy and has helped me out on more than one occasion, but his yeast is always well past the expiration date and I get the feeling that much of his stuff sits for a very long time.

I have built a relationship with the folks at Above the Rest Homebrew (the eastside store on Foster). They are fantastic to deal with and have good prices. They really helped me when I made the switch to BIAB, and they have a wide selection of specialty grains. If you need yeast special ordered, they will have it the following Thursday.

Yup... His homebrew section is all dated/expired... He also repackages a lot of stuff from bulk. It concerns me if it was done in a sterile manner... That's why i skip out. His hours are all wacky too. I wish it was better since I can walk there. The building really does look amazing now though.

I go to above the rest too. Been going to the Tigard one before they opened the foster location. Now I go mainly to the foster location. They know me by name...
Sharon is a character for sure. I'll be heading that way later in the week for some ingredients. I think I'm going to brew a few batches over the next two weeks since I have some down time.

You will love the new mill. Very professional looking, and it gave me the best efficiency to date.

Enjoy!!
