I'm lucky enough to have family that brews in Milwaukee, WI and had the chance to visit the Northern Brewer there. So I've been somewhat spoiled. Here's some pictures from their self-service grain room.

If you want to check them out

I've been going there pretty much since they opened up and have always been happy. They're also the only place you can order East Coast Yeast online and get it shipped anywhere.

I have heard nothing but GREAT things about love2brew. I don't use them but i know someone who uses them exclusively. Check them out if you can.

I will definitely use love2brew at some point, but I'm gonna check out the shop at gaslight this first time because right now all I need is some caps and starsan, and my birthday is coming up this week so a trip to the brewpub one evening might be cool

Thanks to everybody for the suggestions!

That's odd. Honestly I've never done anything too crazy in the times I've shopped there. My brother lives in Freehold I live in New Brunswick so we're both about equidistant from Brewers App and Love2Brew but we've enjoyed the quality of the extract from Love2Brew more. We're into partial mash but even when we did steeping grains and extract there was a more noticeable twang from Brewers App's LME vs Love2Brew's DME. Once Love2Brew posted on facebook that they don't charge sales tax for brewing ingredients we made the full love2brew switch. We walk in with our list of ingredients and they're usually all there. I usually double check online for what I want before going in.

They never should have been charging sales tax. There is no sales tax on food in NJ, and thats what your brewing ingredients are.

Midwest and northern brewer are for the most part one in the same.

If I order anything online, I go through More Beer (now in PA and 1 day shipping) or Williams Brewing.

Hey bud. Look up Corrados for home brew supplies. They're on the border of Passaic and Paterson which isn't a very far trek from MSU or Montclair in general.

There is a nice place near me in Freehold called Brewers Apprentice. You can order equipment/ingredients off of their website. www.brewapp.com
