there are two brew your own beer pubs here in cleveland. they will begrudgingly sell me grain/hops/yeast... i've never tried to get caps or bottles from them, but i bet they would.
edit: my home brew supply was closed today as well... The Brew Kettle(brew your own) in Strongsville Ohio, near where i live... sold me 22 oz bottles today for 50 cents a pop... that's 49 cent savings compared to the hbs... w00t!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A barrel of malt, a bushel of hops, you stir it around with a stick
The kind of lubrication to make your engine tick
never argue with an idiot, they'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
