This is my favorite supplier, and not because it's close to home. It only takes them a day to fill my order. (Because they're so close to home, I usually receive my order within three days of placing the order. That means I can usually order on Tuesday and brew on Saturday. ) The best part about ordering from their website is that they take PayPal. That way I can pay via my bank account. I know I can use a check card, but I've been using PayPal so long I can't change. Whenever I visit the store, it is clean and well organized, and the staff is really friendly. They're a short drive from MoPac, and not far from North by Northwest Brewery off of Loop 360.

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.

I have been a customer of AHB for the last four years using their website to order, and have also had the pleasure to shop there while in Austin for my brother's wedding.

Their store is extremely well organized and almost everything was right where it should be (on the shelves and not outback). Their website is also extremely easy to navigate. I would suggest that any homebrewer sign up for their mailing list to get word on their monthly sales. They consistently have the best prices on the web, and have some of the best service I have encountered in the homebrewing community. Their shipping prices are also extremely competitive. I will continue to be a customer for as long as I am brewing.

Being new to home brewing, these guys made me feel right at home. I just started home brewing about a month ago and bought all my equipment from AHS. Delivery time with the internet order was extremely fast. They have all kinds of equipment to choose from, they have a tone of recipies for every type of brew imaginable. One of the great things is all of the clone brew recipies that they have from many micro/craft breweries.

The people that work at AHS are extremely helpful and are willing to go out of your way to help you find something and your questions no matter how simple the question is. The customer service is out of this world. Some companies out there could learn a thing or two about customer service from AHS.

I highly recommend using AHS for all your home brewing needs, big or small. These guys are great and you will not be disappointed.
