This is for MoreBeer's web operation...if they were my local store I'd probably be broke by now. Prices and selection are the best you will find. I've brewed two of my own recipe extract batches with their exctract and it is fantastic. Also brewed their Pliny Extract kit and it was awesome. Not big on kits, but like the Pliny kit so much that I've got their Pizza Port Shark Bite Red fermenting away now.

I've also bought a bunch of equipment from them and everything comes fast and is shipped for free if your order is over $59. You can't ask more than that. My go-to for equipment and any ingredients I don't buy locally.

This has been my homebrew shop in the east bay for the past two years.
Great place overall, and right next door to a local brewpub = win

They have a great selection of malts and other grains. They have two mills in shop for customer use. They also have a couple flavors and types (liquid and dry) extract if you aren't brewing all-grain. Pretty diverse selection of hops and yeasts as well.

The major draw of this store is the brewing equipment though. Their starter kits are fantastic and they almost have all the incremental upgrades to get you to nano-brewery status. AND their prices on most these items are incredibly low. I highly recommend this brewstore for east bay brewers.

I went here to check it out since I haven't been there in like 12 years. They have moved since the last time I was there. They had a huge selection there. I didn't even know where to go when I first walked in. For a while I was just exploring. It was pretty sweet. I was checking out the kits and one of the guys helped me find the kit I wanted. He looked in the back for me and found the one I wanted. He was very helpful. I ended up picking up a kit for a Double IPA and a Brew Your Own magazine. Excellent Service and selection there. Obviously I have to come back in a few weeks for the bottles so I will be back again and again.

Walked around into the shop area and ale industries before we were directed across the way to the actual homebrew shop. Smelled just like an ale american ale was being made.

Lots of brew supplies refrigerated yeast, hops etc. . . Lots more gadgetry than most shops. Jockey boxes to the left. Cooler w some beer, wish they carried some wine racks or coolers. They have their own, one full size, one wine fridge, but none for you. Lots of kegs, even some w pro beer in it.

Help was helpful, asked if we need some help, chill w u if u dont.
Worth visiting for the barley aroma alone.

Took an "All grain brewing" class here a couple of weeks ago with my Father in Law (Thanks Steve! :D )

Pretty damn good selection, in the class which was a pretty damn good value they provided you with a free beer for lunch as well as some pizza and broke everything down to a fully understandable point (I am in the process of going from extract to all grain at the moment).

Incredible selection, major clone kits available, wine supplies, brewing, hardware and ingredients, oak chips for bourbon barrel home brew.

The only downside if any was a lot of the brewing setups and or hardware seemed to have a healthy to pretty healthy markup on them, I would go there for support, questions and brewing ingredients, but WOULD ADVISE doing research on eBay and other sites prior to buying any hardware there first!! You could probably find it for 20-30% cheaper elsewhere, though you won't get the support and expertise that comes from their staff!

I have made several orders from More Beer since about 2002. They have a great selection of ingredients, but their selection of hardware is their strong point. I am not a "gadget" oriented homebrewer, but that is definitely their focus.

I have been satisfied with their ingredients and their quality. When I order from them I am usually able to buy everything I need for a batch from them. Their shipping prices are decent and their turn-around time is good. I have not had a need to use theri customer service because I've always gotten exactly what I wanted when I ordered it.

I've made several (>6) orders through More Beer for both equipment and ingredients. I have always received my goods in a reasonable time and haven't experienced any problems. They have been very timely with shipping out my orders even though I use the free shipping options. The goods have been appropriately packed.

Additionally, I find the themes and selection of their kits to be above average. They have a good selection of equipment such that it's nearly a one-stop shop. I also appreciate their support of the homebrew community and brewing education. They have helped with the Jamil Show, which has been a great educational tool.

I have nothing bad to say about this place. They are, hands down, the best homebrew shop in the world... well as far as I've seen.

The staff is always helpful and they seem happy to be there. The quality is second to none, and their selection is hard to beat... Although I have bought hops on the web when I couldn't get high alpha hops during the hop shortage. Their prices are fair IMO. They sometimes seem high, but they frequently run sales and special, and they give a discount to club members, so that helps a little.

What can I say, I love this place.
