4.55/5  rDev +2.5%
quality: 5 | service: 4 | selection: 4.5 | $$

Great place to buy homebrew supplies. Swung by AHS after finally getting settled into my apartment & catching the brewing itch. Consider that itch scratched. The store is a mecca for homebrew supplies, with everything from kettles, all-grain setups, TONS of hop, yeast, and malt varieties (plus huge drums of LME that are poured & packaged fresh), homebrew t-shirts, books, magazines, and more. The selection and quality are top-notch, and our DFH India Brown Ale clone is happily bubbling away as I type.

The one "complaint" I have about AHS is that if you go in with a recipe, a worker usually will take care of you, measuring out and assimilating all your ingredients. Now, this isn't a complaint about the service, but I sort of miss perusing my LHBS and compiling the ingredients myself. Next time I'll probably do that, but this time I would have liked the worker to show me around and given me the chance to get the ingredients myself...okay, rant over. Lastly, the prices were very reasonable--only $38 for a 5-gallon recipe. Easy to see why this is the premier homebrew shop of the Southeastern United States.

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.
