Review of the on-line shop.
Beer, beer and more beer is one of the better on-line homebrew supply stores. Everything Ive ever ordered from them has been fresh and prompt with few problems. Selection is good and the free shipping on orders over $49 is a big plus.
The beer ingredient selection is decent and at first glance looks impressive but whenever I go to make a beer, especially from a recipe, they always seem to lack key ingredients in the beers Im making. Of the 2-½ dozen malts, most are either basic base, crystal or common specialty malts. Hop selection is actually pretty good but Im always surprised they dont carry styrian goldings which seems to hinder a lot of my attempts at making Belgian beers. Beyond that though, its definitely more than adequate for making most standard beers. A full range of hops, yeasts and all the other ingredients.
The one thing that really sets Beer, beer and more beer apart though is their selection of brewing equipment. Its simply out of this world. Everything from basic kits to full blown brewing sculptures and everything in between. Really an amazing selection for anyone doing all grain and looking to modify or upgrade their setup.
The beer kits here need to mentioned as they have a lot of really impressive special kits including a great clone kit of the rogue I2PA.
Overall I have very mixed feelings about ordering on-line from here. If I want to convert my apartment into a brewery or brew a straight-ahead American Ale its a must visit, but for brewing most any other things I usually pass.

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.
