My LHBS has 4 or 5 employees, everyone is nice except for this one guy who is an ass. This guy isn't helpful or friendly, so I try to stay clear of him.

On another note, My LHBS has a mailing list up on the cashier counter and of course I signed up for it. Problem is I have yet to get anything and I signed up 11 months ago. Same goes for my brother in law who was there w/ me.

I love my LHBS. All the people working there make beer and wine so they know what they are doing and talking about. Plus other then one kind of hops I was looking for and they did not have they have had everything I am looking for.
But I go there so much some of the guys say that I need to punch in.. lol

All Seasons in Nashville is wonderful as well. You can call ahead with your order and it will be milled and ready to pick up by the time I get there in 10 minutes.

Prices are great too, since I am not having things shipped to me.

Also, they have half-price yeast that is over 6 months old. I've never had a problem reviving them, so it's specialty liquid yeast for $3.50 or so.

My local shop, www.AmericanBrewmaster.com, is wonderful. All of the guys are friendly and very experienced and they usually have what I want- except Caravienne, which seems to go pretty quickly. The owner even took my friend/mentor Rob and I out for some "market research" one evening a few weeks back. Thanks for the pints Mark!

I'm lucky and live in Hopkins which borders St. Louis Park, the home of Midwest Homebrew Supply. It's a big place, but they staff it pretty well and most of the employees are helpful. I haven't had a bad experience yet. They'll know me there sooner or later...I'm in there about once a week now.

I love American Brewmaster also, Mark and the rest of the guys are great. Sometimes I'll bring in a few homebrews and just chat it up with them for an hour.

(As a note: I do Frederick to Sterling to Alexandria daily... My perception of "not that bad" may be off a bit.)
It seems that everytime in Frederick it's only on my way to PA.

I actually drive Bethesda to Baltimore everyday to get to work. Stopping in Columbia is basically on my way home. Will probably stop by tomorrow or Thursday. I need to pickup some WLP004 and Irish Moss.

Flying Barrel is my LHBS and I have to agree with Kevin. Great store, lots of supplies, very friendly and knowledgeable staff. They made it really easy to get back into the hobby for me. Now that I ordered a Barley Crusher, I may be going there quite a bit more for grains. I'm sure I'll get lazy in my ordering knowing I can crush it myself.
