I happened to drive by this place and decided to check it out! Jim is a real nice guy and stocks a very good selection of supplies! Prices are good and the service is great. Awesome yeast selection! And he carries a lot of cool brewing equipment as well as parts! I was glad to find a part for my keg system so I didn't have to go all the way to Miramar area to get it. The one con about this place is they only sell hops by the 2Oz. instead of 1Oz. increments. The hours are sometimes hard to deal with but it being a new store, I'm sure the will expand! I love supporting local business so I'll b back! Definitely worth checking out!

This is a home brew supply store that is really trying to be one for the people. The owner, Jim, is a really friendly guy and will talk with you about beer and brewing until you realise you've been there for 3 hours and you told your wife you were just going to check it out and you'd be back soon!

Their selection isn't the most robust, but they are slowly increasing the ingredients and items they stock. If they don't have something, tell Jim and he will look into getting it. Most things that they haven't had have been in stock the next time I go.

They don't have HBM's professional mega-mill, but they do have a motorised mill and will assist you in milling your grain. I haven't had any decreases in efficiency from milling the grain there, and the prices on the grains definitely competitive. Come to think of it, prices on most everything they stock are competitive with the other homebrew supply stores in San Diego.

I would highly recommend that you everyone check out this store, especially if you are further east. I think All About Brewing will successfully fill a a gap in the home brew supply chain for those living in or near east count.
