This place is the only homebrew store I know in Tulsa. It's a great place filled with knowledgeable employees. Everyone wants to help you succeed in your brewing endeavors and it shows. Prices are high, but the materials are costly. Plus its the only one in town... so yeah.

Excellent, wide selection of products for wine & beer. Good selection of grains and they are ground to good grist. Prices are certainly not higher than anywhere else. Dave gives great advice and makes great brew equipment. If you've got a big load of stuff, they'll grab a dolly and help you load it into your vehicle. Class act. Class product.

High Gravity is Tulsa's only full service homebrew supply shop. With a knowlegeble staff and good selection this is the place to go in Tulsa, OK. If they don't have it ask them if they can get it, and they will do thier best to get it for you.

High Graivity has thier own line of beer kits and is willing to help you create your own recpie (personally I think the Saison kit is the best). Large selection of grains, extracts, hops and yeast. As well as more wine kits than the average Okie would know what to do with. They also have cheesemaking and coffee roasting supplies.

All in all the kind of place a homebrewing needs to give a try...

When it comes to online homebrew shops, go to highgravitybrew.com and forget the rest. Unless it is something that High Gravity doesn't carry, but there is very little that they don't carry. I've dealt with several shops on-line and in person and this is by far the best.

The "build your own beer" system on their website makes putting together a recipe online no different than if you were in the store telling them exactly what you want, ounce by ounce as they put it together before your eyes. It is really that simple and they were the first to do this. I recently moved away from Tulsa but now I have two great homebrew shops to choose from and for online purchases I always go for highgravitybrew.com.

As other reviewers have noted, they have a fairly large and well-organized store. It is arguably the best homebrew shop in this part of the country.

Just got into homebrewing a few weeks ago and boy am I glad this place is in my city. Staff was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable every time I went in there. Besides brewing supplies they have glassware, books, magazines. I like that they have their own recipe kits inspired by well known beers like Fat Tire, Optimator, Westmalle Tripel. Only wish it was a little closer to my house, they should open one in Midtown! It's still cheaper to drive there than to pay for shipping from out of state so I'm sure I will be returning many times in the future.

I visited this shop on a recent trip to my folks in Tulsa.

Well laid out store. They have a good selection of ingredients clearly marked for all to view which is different from most shops. Nice selection of steins and other beer and wine related products. They are very clean and present their products well. The service is good, even though I was just there to browse.

Can't really think of any! I wish they had a shop in my neck of the woods.

I would frequent this place if it were closer to home.

High Gravity is a great Homebrewing shop. They have a large selection of kits, both their own, and prepackaged, as well as all the raw supplies you would need to create your own beer (malt, hops, yeast, etc). They recently expanded the retail floorspace which was great as it was getting a little bit crowded in there. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly as well. Their website is also fantastic if you don't live in the Tulsa area and need supplies. The location is at 71st and Memorial, which has some of the worst traffic in town, but even so, it is still worth the trip. Highly recommended.

First off, I would like to say that High Gravity Homebrew is the best homebrew store I've delt with on the internet. I've bought from Williams, Beer, Beer and More Beer, and Northern Brewer, and I've always been satisfied, but High Gravity was really great. They allow you to purchase grains by the ounce, which has kept me away from online stores in the past. I don't have a scale, but my LHBS will measure them for me. This time, I needed a few ingredients that my LHBS didn't carry. The prices at High Gravity were as low as I've seen anywhere, the only thing that took away was because shipping was slightly more expensive ($15 for Fedex). The service was excellent, after placing my order on Sunday night, I realized I had neglected bottle caps, and I was able to add that to the order. The Wyeast I ordered was extremely fresh too, its manufacture date was March 8th (I recieved my order on March 31th), and the pack was swollen in just over an hour. They didn't have one variety of hops I was looking for (Horizon), and they were out of Amarillo, but other then that they had everything.

The High Gravity Homebrew Shop is located at 7165 S. Memorial Dr. (SW corner of 71st & Memorial) in Tulsa, OK USA. High Gravity is owned & operated by the dynamic duo of Dave & Desiree Knott who gave up their "mundane" IT jobs to follow their passion for the art of homebrewing & winemaking. They're both active members of the local homebrewing club, the Fellowship of Oklahoma Ale Makers (FOAM) and certified judges in the Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP).

High Gravity is Tulsa's only premier full-service homebrew shop. They offer one the best selections of homebrewing & winemaking supplies in the entire state. The shop stocks everything from basic/beginning kits to fresh bulk extracts to a huge selection of domestic & imported grains (by the pound or by the bag), hops (pellet/whole) & yeast (dry/liquid) for the novice or experienced homebrewer. High Gravity also caters heavily to the wine ethusiasts with a huge selection of wine kits, fruit bases, & concentrates along with lots of equipment. There's also a large inventory of books, periodicals, and accessories to keep you busy browsing.

High Gravity has just about everything that a new beginner or experienced veteran would need to brew a batch at home. If they don't have it in stock, then they'd be happy to special order it for you. High Gravity is a much needed addition to the local homebrewing & winemaking community and offers monthly classes, a newsletter, and mail order discounts & specials for customers. High Gravity just celebrated their first anniversary, so stop by and say hello to Dave, Desiree, & Pippin (their African Grey Parrot who says, "Want some beer?").

CHEERS! Beertracker
