I think I will make it a point to go today.
They are good people, I was there just yesterday. Got me a refill with Terrapin Moo-hoo and it's the only place my wife can find Ace Pear Cider. It's a nice place.

My son played some foose ball while we figured out what I was looking for in my beer. Found out it was left handed week sauce. Delish! But moo hoo is my winter go to next to NITRO.

Do they stock a good amount of ingredients? This place just makes more sense for me to drive to than brewmasters warehouse.

Hey ya'll from up in Hall County. Been brewin for almost a year now. I did a few extract and a few Partial mash now. Just made an STC-1000 temp controller with a mini fridge to control temps. That's the absolute best thing I could have done!! I have an Oktoberfest lagering as we speak it's been lagering for a month now and boy is it tasty! I am lovin the addiction! I'm asking Santa for a keg setup for Christmas any suggestions for something local? Or are they all overpriced?

I live in KSaw, recently in Dallas. I've always thought the Paulding/West Cobb area deserved a homebrew store. Decent local prices always trump mail order for me. I've also been looking for a local brew club. Date and Time is never going to work for everyone but I'm willing to help get it started even with my busy schedule. PM if you're interested and maybe we can get something growing. I love brewing during fall and winter months.

They have a good bit of stuff. Lots of base grains and a bit of specialty malts, lots of hops, yeast and they will crush your grains if you need them to. I will get a recipe together and email it to them as soon a I figure pit what I want to brew next. Spoke with the owner and he said they are putting an online ordering system together and you can just order online. I have bought all but 1 batch from BW and they have been good to me. I like the fact that this guy is living the dream. Awesome!

Correction, the west ga area DESIRES a homebrew store! I would brew twice as much if I didnt have to drive 45 minutes each way to get ingredients. And I know many people interested until they ask "where do you buy the stuff to make it?"

If you're scared to use the phone (don't be... tell him that crazy brit Andy said to call, he'll warm right up to ya), or just email Ernesto, he'll get back to you with in / out of stock

+1 on that. I've always used BMW, but lately they've had a lot of stock issues... My last recipe needed some smoked malt and BMW told me they had everything but that but they'd be getting more that night. While I was in there another guy who had been told that his order would be ready at 4pm (it was now 5:30) had driven an hour to pick up his order only to be told that they didn't have all of his order either! I had heard about Dogwood Growlers so I figured I'd call them to see if they had what I needed - they did and the guy offered to have it ready for me by the time it arrived. Turns out these guys are closer to me than BMW and have better prices when buying in bulk (I was quoted $40/bag of 2-row vs $45 at BMW) and they don't mind ordering sacks of grain for you if eh don't have it in stock. I'm much more likely to use these guys moving forward. Not to mention I can pick up a growler at the same time!
