The best place for home brew supplies in the Capitol area. If you want great advice without any pretension this is the store. Very nice and helpful with an obvious love of beer. Don't forget that they have many growlers/containers for when you go to Hill Farmstead and stock up on liquid gold!

Actually this area of Pembroke is known as Suncook because it sits on the Suncook River. This village is home to 2 pizza joints, a Chinese take out, a couple of barbers/hair stylists, a laundromat, a closed mill converted to apartments, and an American Legion Hall. Then there is Kettle to Keg - the golden nugget surrounded by historical quaintness.

I'm not as active a brewer as other BA members but this is the place I go to buy my supplies. They have everything including pre-fab kits for novices (like me) and grains, hops, bottling and cap supplies and other important brewing tools for a modest price.

The owners know their stuff. They are active in New Hampshire's Brew Free or Die organization and are involved with putting together the annual home brew fest in the Plymouth area each year.

Sometimes they run brewing fests for people to come in and observe how the process works. An all around homebrewer's paradise. Check it out when in Southern New Hampshire.

One day this past summer I was getting ready to make a Belgian Dubbel and realized I needed more yeast. So, I drove up to the Fermentation Station in Meredith (@ 1 hour each way) only to find out from the owner that there was this place called Kettle to Keg in Suncook only 15 minutes from my house! I had been a MoreBeer.com customer for 7 years and never bothered to look locally because I just cared about price only.

After finding Kettle to Keg, I only purchase my supplies from Jason. Customer service is excellent - Jason knows how to talk to each level of brewer without talking down or sounding pretentious. I've gained a lot of knowledge from being able to bounce things off of him. His customer service has made me better equipped to tweak my recipes with confidence.

The selection at Kettle to Keg is very adequate with a large assortment of specialty grains and hops on hand. Give Kettle to Keg a try - you won't be disappointed!

Kettle to Keg is the badass of the NH brewing community. The owner and operator Jason has a degree in brewing from the University of Sunderland in Sunderland, England and has helped me formulate and enhance my recipe's on multiple occasions. A little over a year ago, my brother and I walked into the shop wide eyed. I had never done extract or any other kind of brewing before and had my heart set on jumping right into all grain. He set us up with the rest of the equipment and explained the whole process to us and the result; I brewed a delicious all grain coffee stout using my own recipe, with help from Jason (owner), my very first time brewing.

Like everyone else who has reviewed K2K, I am very happy not to have to drive half an hour to get my ingredients. The shop is very small, but has just about anything you need to brew, and to get started brewing. Jason's (the owner) expertise in brewing helped out a lot when the particular hop I needed was not available (due to the worldwide hop "crisis")Jason recomended something that would work just as well. The prices are also very, very reasonable. I spent atleast $20 less than when buying ingredients for prior brews. I will be back, and hopefully this is just the groundwork for what could be a great homebrew supply store!

I saw an ad for this "new" homebrew shop in one of the local free newspapers, so I decided to check it out.

Jason has a small shop, but provides excellant service and advice. He is moving operations to a bigger store so hopefully his inventory will expand as well. If he doesn't have something he will order it for you. Prices are average, but saves me the trip to Nashua (30 minutes) or the expense and hastle of mail ordering.

The order ahead option is great for those of us who are pressed for time. Call or email your order and its ready to go when you arrive.
For those who like tea he sells tea stuff too.

Homebrew shop in downtown Pembroke, New Hampshire. This is excellent since I no longer have to drive at least forty-five minutes to get my supplies. The store is small, but filled with almost everything a homebrewer needs. Selection is average and Jason -the owner - is still working on getting his inventory up to where he would like it. However, if there is anything that you need he will order it for you. Malt selection is good while yeast selection is still a little thin. As for supplies, he has just about everything you could need.

As the only person who runs the store, you always get personal attention from someone who used to be a professional brewer and is a longtime homebrewer. The prices are very good, cheaper than other homebrew shops in the state. The store also sells tea and other tea related gifts. Overall, a good store that is on its way to becoming great.
