I drive about 40 minutes to cap and cork.

Are you sure none of these homebrewshops are nearer?

Leopold brothers was closed back in 08. Adventures in Homebrewing is supposed to be opening a second store in that area though. It's a bit far from Lapeer though.

I've heard Hopman's is good but I don't think it's a straight shot from Lapeer. Might be closer than cap and cork.

It does suck to live so far away from a quality HBS. However, if you are like me, you want to support Michigan businesses and try to improve the sorry state of our economy. Adventures in Home Brewing is a Michigan company that has online service. They are opening here in Ann Arbor as they expand their customer base. It is still at least an hour drive for you.

I'm down in Westland and go to Adventures in Homebrewing for most of my supplies. I wasn't aware that Brew and Grow was open on 7 Mile. I thought they closed shop when they closed the 8 Mile location.

I got a buddy in Lapeer. If you see an old biker wearing a fedora and smoking a cigar, it's him.

Michigan (Downriver) checking in.

I'm spoiled. I have 2 LHBS to choose from, one 10 min away (Great Lakes Homebrew Supply) and the other 20 min away (Adventures in Homebrewing).

Grew up in Ypsilanti, home of Beerfest and now live in Dearborn about 5 min from Adventures in Homebrewing which is also on the way home from work if I feel like taking 94.....very dangerous.
