Close to Lindale Mall off of Collins Road, this place sits in a little strip mall. The space is pretty small, but it is packed with many things even Blichmann's Thermonator, BoilerMaker, and Floor Burner.

Lots of glass carboys and buckets along with a large variety of White Labs Yeasts. They had just gotten Wyeast smack packs so they only had three varieties: 1056 American Ale, 1028 London, and one other I forgot.

There are lots and lots of extract kits from Better Brewer, a fridge full of hops, all steel plumbing parts for ball valves so you can make what you need in the store, every kind of rubber stopper, chemistry needs, and 50lb bags of Briess Malt and a large variety of specialty malts including pale chocolate malt.

The owner was working there and was very courteous and knowledgeable. If you want to get started this place has everything you will need to do that in one shot. It is self sustaining in the ability to brew beer, you won't have to order a thing or two from Northern or Midwest unless you want a specific kind of Wyeast, but you could probably ask the owner and he'd order it if you like to plan ahead.

A great little shop that has everything you would need for homebrewing. And if they don't have it at the shop, they will order it for you. They also carry supplies for making wine and cheese. Joe, the owner, is very knowledgeable and helpful. He posts very educational and entertaining YouTube videos about homebrewing.
