I have been here a few times now and they have a great selection for ingredients. The staff is all very knowledgable and friendly. They have a very good selection of grains, hop pellets and yeast, and a good selection of whole hops. They have a LOT of wine kits for those into wine making. I have been to a couple other places in the Alpharetta area and I prefer Beer & Wine Craft's selection far better, especially for grains. I will continue to go here.

Been here two times now.

Quality is good, everything is stored as it should be.

Service is great. They are very helpful and have been able to answer any questions that I had. There's also a computer there to look up recipes.

Selection is good. There have been a few things for two batches that I haven't been able to find, but there are always suitable substitutes.

Overall this isn't a bad place to have around, considering the only other place I know of around the Atlanta area is in Alpharetta. There prices have gone up from the fuel price increases, but it's still not terribly expensive.

The owners here are really nice folks and, like the last review says, very helpful. They're very knowledgeable about brewing techniques and equipment, even though their specialty is wine ("Wine Craft"). They were very friendly in helping me pick out my first homebrew equipment and ingredients.

I would have liked to have seen better storage of ingredients. The hops were in opaque envelopes, some of which were opened and resealed, allowing oxidation. These probably should have been refrigerated.

Prices were reasonable, there were some good basic beer kits, and the people are nice. In all, it's a good place to get started brewing.

Visited Wine Craft of Atlanta last weekend, this was my first visit to a homebrew shop so keep that in mind during the review. They seem to have anything and everything that the beginning brewer might need. Yes, have of their stock is wine making supplies but they have an impressive stock of malts, hops, and yeast as well as basic homebrew needs like kits and equipment. The lady (Peggy) that waited on my girlfriend (co-brewer) and I was very friendly and helpful. She didn't push any of her wares on us and even suggested that a couple of items could be found at regular retail stores cheaper. That's what I call customer friendly! She indicated that they could order any hard to find items if we needed any in the future.
