Hey folks, just moved to Denver (well, west of denver) and need to find a new homebrew store. Any suggestions?

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, couldn't find a better one.

Thanks,
Ben

I use The Brew Hut in Aurora and they are absolutely great. It might be a bit of a drive if you are in W. Denver

Stomp Them Grapes would be the LHBS nearest to Evergreen. Close to I-70 and Pecos.

VERY large selection of everything needed for brewing.

Second on Stomp Them Grapes. Huge selection, decent prices, adequate website. Straight shot down the hill from you on I-70.

Beer At Home on Broadway is fine, if you find yourself coming into town via Conifer/285 (285 becomes Hampden in town). Friendly and knowledgeable with a bunch of fun brew days in the parking lot. Higher prices and a smaller shop, though. Poor website.

The Brew Hut is my favorite, mostly due to it being connected to Dry Dock Brewery. This is a dangerous combination. It's a bit far for me, so I generally go to Beer at Home on Broadway, and like it pretty well.

I go to Stomp them Grapes. Its good, the people are really cool. As overpriced as any typical home brew store, but that's how they stay in business.

If you are interested in saving some money on a great base grain. There is a bulk buy being put together for Colorado grown and malted 2-row and white wheat.

Please check out this thread

If anyone has any contacts for a specialty malts group buy, where you do not have to buy whole sacks of each grain, I would be interested.
