I went to the Brew Shack on Waters Ave this morning and the store was gone.
Is is OOB or just moved? Are there any other home brewing stores in the Tampa Bay Area?

I sent an email as listed on their website to see if they've moved. The website hasn't been updated for a couple of years.

Theres a place located north on 66st from park blvd on left called beer and wine pantry. I must say its not the greatest, however, they do have some things. The lack of appropiate LHBS makes me want to open one up...

As soon as I moved down here, Brew Shack closed up.

But Southern Brewing Supply is as good as a LHBS can get. They're getting more and more equipment in every week and they have any grain/hops/yeast you could need. Talk to Brian, the owner. Always helpful.

On Busch Blvd just east of I-275.

+1 on Southern. Great people. Helpful staff. They're interested in your success.

Very classy. Nice people. They hold grain and extract classes every couple of weeks. In which they also feed and provide homebrew samples to everyone.

They have a good selection of equipment, and a ton of grains on hand. Plus extract needs are covered too.

E-mail Kelly to get on their mailing list, and get invites to classes:

Thanks Tim. Stopped by there today thanks to your post. It's everything you said. Really convenient for me too. Almost right on the way home from work.
