Default Hi from central IL

Hey guys, I've been on here for a little while now, but planning on buying all my equipment, and supplies for my first batch in the next few weeks. I'll probably buy all my equip from Friar Tuck, as it's the only place around, and get all my beer supplies via online orders.

not sure if your Near Bloomington or Peoria, but I hear the hombrew shop in Galesburg if you want to make the trip. Still haven't been there myself though.

Welcome.

The brew store in Galesburg is "Somethings Brewn". Jim and Mary are the owners as well as members of the MUGZ club in Moline/Rock Island, IL. Google the store.

Where are you from in central IL?

Something's Brewing is nice. Jim is a real nice guy.

I was just at the Friar tuck in Savoy today and they actually have a good selection of hops at decent prices. Cascades were like 1.79/oz Nothing over $3/oz. Not bad for retail.

Actaually I live in Decatur, but I'm around Peoria and Bloomington quite frequently. To my knowledge Tucks is the only place in any town in central IL that sells supplies. The closest I know of otherwise is now Galesburg.

Nope. Savoy and somewhere in Missouri. Savoy is actually much bigger than the other 4.
