I used to live in Sea Isle City, when I did that was exactly where I went. Tap-It is top notch no doubt about it. Shawn and the Brew Jersey club were a really great group. If I didn't move so far from there I would have kept going to their meetings.

Then www.brewyourownbottle.com/ and www.kegandbarrelhomebrewsupply.com in the Berlin Mart are probably closest. I'm a regular at Keg and Barrel and have been to BYOB in Westmont. Westmont is just a little bit farther and there's lots more traffic. Next closest would be www.brewapp.com in Freehold but I've never been there.

There is one in Columbus farmer's market on 206 between Eastampton and Bordentown. They are ok in a pinch. I will go up there when I realise oh crap, I forgot to order something, but it is VERY small and the staff isn't that knowledgeable (I think the owners kid runs it and doesn't seem that interested in brewing) it is like shopping in regular store. Not quite the knowledge and assistance you expect from the homebrew community. I'm not saying don't or I wouldn't go there, because I do. Just don't expect an excessively friendly environment or a lot of variety they have the necessities. Caps, bottles, hop bags, fuggles you get the idea.

So thanks for the info I guess I will have to check Berlin out.

Berlin just doubled their store size. Here's what they recently posted on Facebook.
"Wait until you see the changes in the shop....new ownership, new layout, new products, more base grains, and lower prices!"

How is the Berlin shop compare to online as far as prices. I would love to buy from a local shop but it always seems soo much more expensive then online.

Prices are not bad, they're pretty competitive on the stuff I usually buy. I've been mostly buying hops online at www.farmhousebrewingsupply.com cause I like the 4 oz packs. Remember, no shipping at the LHBS. Scott & Gina at Key and Barrel run promotions all the time and they are active in Barley Legal and they brew themselves. Plus, they're just nice folks.

I was down there a while ago when they were doing the remodel, looks like they were adding a lot of space. They refill CO2 in Berlin also, which is great when you need a refill on a weekend.

I'm in Burlington Twp. five minutes from the Columbus HBS, which others have said will do in a pinch, and I agree.
