Red Trolley is good too, but they use NASA rated glue on the label
Locally I can buy a case of 24 for 12.50.....

That is a win! It actaully makes buying beer easier if I can justify empty bottles at a discount with good"free" beer in them .

Cheers!

They are open.. I went a couple weeks ago... Day one!!! They were very nice and helpful. They still use Sean's mill so no recalc's needed for eff%.

It was hard to tell they were open... I almost left but decided to try the door... open... Yikes, I almost left and I knew they were there and heard the rumors that they were opening... That makes for a tough Grand Opening.
Even my daughter said, " Wow, it is amazing anyone knows they are even open"

I hope they make it. I really like a Local LHBS

http://www.socalhomebrew.com/

I'll see if I can get them to announce on here somewhere.

I emailed David and sent him the link to share info here.

Hope this helps spread the word.

Like I said "Vanguard" is closed, your store name is socal homebrew, I understand that your in the same location, two different stores as far as I am concerned.

My post was to warn people that Sean Geer (Vanguard) bailed and he left several of his online order sites up and taking orders even though he is gone.

I have no beef what so ever with you or socal homebrew, you don't need to make anything right with me.

Thankfully I didn't order from him, Others here did though, and I just can't stand seeing others getting Ripped Off.

I wish you well and good luck with your new store.

Cheers

Thanks Wiley I appreciate that, unfortunately while the previous owner had a business license under vanguard he was also doin online sales under SoCal. We have control of the website, socalhomebrew.com but it has taken us a couple months to get the storefront in order so I haven't had a chance to mess with it and change his content too much, hopefully by next week I'll be able to start working on it.

What other sites are you aware of that he is still trying to do business on? I legally bought the vanguard and SoCal names so maybe I can let those sites I ow to remove them
