quality: 4.5 | service: 5 | selection: 4.5 | $$$

I went here a few days ago to buy my first homebrew kit. I was kind of nervous because I knew next to nothing about brewing and was afraid that they wouldn't want to be bothered by helping someone with such little knowledge.

However, I was pleasantly surprised. The guy that I talked to (don't know his name) was incredibly friendly and obviously loved his job and loved talking about brewing. He got me everything I needed, and sat around talking with me and answering all of my questions for about an hour. I somehow ended up losing my vile of yeast between the store and home, so I went back the next day to buy a new one. He gave it to me for half-off (said he wanted to get me started haha)!! That is amazing service in my book, since there was no reason for them to give me this discount.

They had a bunch of pretty good sounding recipes/kits. I am fermenting my first batch right now, the "Robust Porter." Hopefully it turns out well!

Overall, I would highly recommend this place.

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.
