This place saved my butt one dark and rainy night. Already to brew and I check my hops and I'm 1oz short at 6:00PM! Shoot! Head to Google and I find Mountain is still open! So I head out there and find this place tucked in a plaza right off I-405. A lot of LHBS are in warehouses but this one is nice like a quiet bookstore. The first thing I notice is that they have some really high end equipment that I've only seen in catalogs like SS conical fermenters. I also found their hops selection exceptional - -I found my Target hops there and they had them all vacuum packed. They have a ton of wine making gear too. The place is great especially if you're on the East side or need to find special gear and ingredients too. Recommended.

I've visited several homebrew stores since I started brewing a few months ago, looking for anything new or interesting that I might not have seen elsewhere. Mountain Homebrew did have several items that I haven't seen, but most of them were wine-related. I'd say that more than half of the store was winemaking supplies.
The staff was especially knowledgable and there were recipes available. They had alot of different items such as buckets with spigots and brewpots with spigots as well as some other little items that were different. There was a wide variety of grains, yeasts, and malts available as well as numerous canned extracts.
The most disappointing part is that everything is at least 30% more expensive than the places that I've been to in Seattle and Everett. I was also disappointed that there were no pre-made kits around when I visited. However, I'm sure that they could have put one together quickly.

I don't have much to compare against, but their staff is very friendly and helpful (and willing to help people who are new to the hobby)

The prices seem reasonable; although a little steeper than I would have expected. The selection seems good; but I wasn't sure exactly what to expect.

They also have a recipe book at the front with copies you can take home. My first homebrew was the MayDay IPA recipe they offer, which combines fresh grains and canned hops. I'm glad to say the results were good. The cost of ingredients for a 5 gallon batch was about 35$

I have also bought tubing, a glass carboy, the joy of homerewing and some assorted accessories here. No problems so far, conveniently located near costco, and a friendly staff means i'll be back soon.

Mountain Homebrews staff is pretty knowledgable and friendly bunch. The store has a mix of wine and beer making supplies available as well as soda and mead supplies. My only complaint is I wish they had more variety on some of the products, but that is relatively minor.
