They are probably busy worrying about their grape deliveries coming up which is what most of their customers are really interested in anyway. It's really a wine maker shop that sells some beer stuff.

Thanks

I see you're in Hoboken. Great place, I live there myself. I like to go to cask and kettle in booton. Its an awesome place to go if you have a car or motorcycle. The ingredients are pretty cheap although I prefer to buy all my equipment online since I can usually get it cheaper. There's also a place in brooklyn but I've never been there before. I'll probably check it out over the winter when its no longer practical for me to ride my motorcycle to cask and kettle.

NO, just go in anytime this week and see for your self. They had 4 or 5 vials of yeast and they were super yeast. I keep asking Jimmy he doesn't even know what to say anymore.

I will say they did get in a lot of hops (all whole)

I'll be shopping at mistucky or booton from now on.

I'm going to throw in my support for cask and kettle in boonton as well. their grain prices are really great. They also frequently have some of the popular hops when they're totally sold out at the top online shops. The shop owner and his helpers are very nice, also.

+1 for Cask and Kettle. Joe is owner and a friendly and knowlegable brewer. One of the widest selections of equipment and ingredients I've seen for a store that size.

HomeSweet HomeBrew in Philly is pretty good. Thought I'd save myself $3 on the bridge and go to Beercrafters last week and regretted that. Could have gotten lunch and gelato in Philly...
Dunno what bridge YOU'RE taking but those bridges are $5 these days!!!

I live close to brewapp, their yeast selection is ok I guess and their grain prices are a little high. The people are super nice and for you extract brewers their kits are really quite affordable. I doubt ANYONE has extract as fresh as theirs. I find their prices competitive with online. Their frequent brewer reward is pretty nice, I just wish they carried more than 5 yeasts (s04, s05, wlp001, wlp002, wlp hefe).

I also like keystone homebrew supply in montgomeryville PA. It's a bit of a ride but their store is AWESOME!

Edit: I just realized his thread was 5 years old. My bad. Stupid iPad app.

I've done a couple BA kits, their fields of golden wheat was to die for, delicious. Metedeconk summer ale was good, not great though. I tried deep nuts brown ale at a tasting event they had, it was excellent there but when I brewed it on premises with friends it was mediocre (before my acquiring my own hb stuff).

I'm from Jersey City and for my money and time I choose Brooklyn Brew. Works out to be about the same as flat rate shipping from most supplies when you include tolls/gas and and I get to chew the proverbial fat with some of the other brewers. Really great place. If I am doing a weird specialty batch and have time Ill order from one of the online guys and buy yeast at whole foods (who surprisingly has a rather large stock)
