I frequently go to Maryland homebrew in columbua MD. I thinks they're great. I gave visited Annapolis homebrew, it was lovely but I don't have enough experience with them to tell you if they're great or suck. There is also one in Frederick Md. The flying barrel I think. Never been. Those are thd only three I know of in Msryland

What part of MD are you looking?

I primarily use Maryland Home Brew in Columbia. Love that place. They always have what I need. Always busy in there, so I'm confident they're turning over inventory/ have fresh ingredients for me. any staff I've ever interacted with have been professional and seemed knowledgeable. Sometimes they seem a bit pricey but its worth it to me.

Flying Barrel in Frederick is a little smaller, but really nice guys there. They're right on my daily commute, so great for replacing the occasional broken hydrometer, etc.

I'm going to be somewhere in Anne Arundel county. Working on finding a place to rent. I hear its a good school district for the kids. Which one of those shops would work best for me? (Only have a vague notion that I'm going to be south of Baltimore... right?)

Annapolis Homebrew will be your closest. I've never been there, but know a few guys who have been and said good things.

Haven't been to Annapolis home brew yet, it is new. I go to MD HB in Columbia quite a bit (too much). They have been around a long while and expanded. Both have internet presences that might give you a better idea of what both have to offer:

Columbia (MD)HB
Annapolis HB

The cool thing about the FLying Barrel is that they are a brew on premise shop, they are the closest to us and know what they are doing. WVMJ

Ok! Now that I'll be working just one job, I can take time and check them out. How about brewclubs? My sister sent me link for CSI in Baltimore, but do any of the clubs meet @ the shops? That's how my club here in CT does it.
