They are pretty awesome! If I want to try a new beer style, invariably I might buy their kit to see what it's like. Their ingredients are good, the price is better then if I tried to buy ingredients separately, and they do a good job at replicating the basic characteristic of that style. I then go and work on my own recipe for adding some more character to the flavor. If there's anything negative to say about their kit beers is that they can be a bit plain ole vanilla.....but that's in comparison to great craft beers. Give any non-brewer a glass, and they'll swear that one of these beers is the best they've ever had!
