I rode public transit for over an hour to get to this place and was greatly disappointed.
when i walked in i immediately saw that this place was mostly for "wine makers" as they sold mostly that grape concentrate crap that you just add water, mix, add yeast and then call yourself a craftsmen. i browsed through the store for a while to see what they had for beer ingredients, and only found those cans of pre hopped malt extract, corn sugar, and one single small bag of way overpriced DME. i figured maybe they were hiding the real goods in back or something so i asked the guy standing at the counter if they sold grain. he looked at with a very confused face and said, "for beer?"
"uh, yea" i said.
"no"
"what do you have as far as beer ingredients?" i said. he pointed at the shelf of cans and said,
"malts"
"huh, i see" i said, instead of correcting his terminology. I hate going into a store only to find you know more about the products than the person selling them.
I bought a used 5 gallon carboy for 10$ to make my trip less of a completely worthless waste of my time, and got the hell out of there.
contrary the the stores name, this is not a hobby shop. it is a store for alcoholics to get around the steep alcohol taxes in Quebec. for a small fee they will even make the "beer" or "wine" for you! you just point at the syrup and say i want that one and come pick it up a week or however long later.
i left this place angry and frustrated that such a place could even exist.
needless to say, i do not recommend this place to anyone, for anything, even if it is sunday and the other stores are closed. this place sucks
don't go
im begging you
