Have ordered online previously but because I was passing through town, I thought I'd stop in, make a purchase and generate a review.
By far, the largest and most comprehensive homebrewing shop I've encountered or even heard of. Books, kegging equipment, specialty equipment, packaging and just about any ingredient -- hops, grain, yeast and adjunct -- you could ever think to put into your beer. For example, I saw a full line of chemical salts available to manage your pH. It's the homebrew equivalent of a large restaurant supply store. In-house liquid extracts are available, as are fresh grains or dried extracts and kits, and even more than a few wine kits.
Staff is extremely helpful. I pointed out a recipe in a homebrew book and they not only collected everything I needed, they also helped customize it depending on my own needs and tastes. For previous online orders, I usually get everything within a day or two of placing the order (I live 250 miles away).
I made a comment about ordering online and the staff said they were something like third in the US for online sales. This is definitely a go-to place, both online and in person.

I thought that the customer service was very impressive. The selection was like nothing I had ever seen in a homebrew store. However, I did find the prices to be a bit higher than that of the homebrew shop I used to work for. Overall a good experience. I will shop there again.

So lucky to have AHS just a few miles from home. Always helpful, never been rude. There are a few things I wish they on display like an all grain tower but they have literally many hundreds of recipes both in house and commercial approximations. I'll never get through it all in my lifetime at my rate of brewing. Disappointed by their mini mash class though, was just talk no helpful demo.
Overall everything I could want from a homebrew shop. So much to brew so little time money and space.

I quickly forget the lack of a homebrew store in my city with austin homebrew just 60 miles down the road. It is worth the drive to see all of the latest in brewing up close. However, the shop also makes it easy to keep my supplies stocked with free and timely shipping with orders over $100. I have never had an issue with an order and every time I make the drive down the staff is always helpful. I receive their monthly emails to see what is new and on sale. I feel blessed to have such a premium store so close.

When ever I'm in Austin and I need something for brewing I try to make a stop at AHS. They have probably the best selection in the state and one of the best selections in the country I would assume. If you are a seasoned home brewer or just starting you can probably find what you are looking for, if not they will order it for you. Their store is large and very clean. They have a separate room where you can find the grains you need and even mill them yourself. The employees are very knowledgeable and are willing to offer advice if you seek it. They have a vast selection of clone recipes for purchase, many of which I have heard are very good. If I lived in Austin there wouldn't be any other place I would need to shop for all of my home brewing needs.
