This place shares a parking lot with the carpet/flooring place next to it. But you can see the sign from the road that says, "OPEN" or "CLOSE" really clearly.

Nice open, tall ceilings with two main rooms. One room with mostly beer supplies, some wine, and a room that has two stairs leading up to a big malted barley room. I was able to buy 50lbs of Marris Otter and American 2-Row. Good amount of specialty grain selections, I picked up chocolate malt, black patent (I saw 3 or 4 types of black patent), and Dingman's Cara 45. Lots of specialty grains.

There's a good selection of yeasts compared to other small homebrew shops, even has Belgian Saison yeast. I have heard of yeast problems with age and deadness of yeast. I used a smack pack for the first time and the bag did inflate a little, but not much. I am glad I used a yeast starter.

The owner was there and helped me with everything I needed. Helped carry my stuff to my vehicle.

They also have an online site where you can order all grain equipment that they don't have in the store itself.
