Well, I have shopped in Spread Eagle. Penny tries to accomodate me- she added the corona type mill for me, I think! But the grain doesn't move very fast, and she doesn't have much variety. She does have hops and yeast, though, and says she'll order some keg parts for me (like quick disconnects). I've bought a couple of wine kits from her, and some wine supplies. That is definitely the closest to me- it's only about 45 miles from me.
I usually order online, or get things in Appleton when I'm there. SuperiorBrew opened a LHBS in Slinger, WI, so when I go to Milwaukee, I'm definitely stopping in. Getting supplies here has been a big challenge- as well as trying to learn the basics on my own. HBT has really been the catalyst that helped me go all-grain and improve my techniques.
