I visit Siciliano's almost weekly for supplies. I just started home brewing and love it. My first batch is still in the primary and I'll be racking the secondary on Friday. I don't think I'll be attending the home brew party this year but will try in the future. I live in Portland but work in downtown Grand Rapids, on the same block as the Hop Cat bar. If you haven't been there, it's amazing. Great beer, great food, great staff, and great atmosphere; a true beer lovers paradise. It's the only place I've ever had Hobgoblin on tap (which is my favorite beer ever, and I'm a bit obsessed with it).
