Have been going to this place a couple years now, and I've been quite happy about it. Routinely recommend it to others.

It's rare they don't have something I need, and really I've only not been able to get an ingredient once or twice, and they had reasonable substitutes anyway. Places do run out of stuff, but this place doesn't very often, and never for really critical stuff.

If I send an order in via email, it's always ready even before I need it. Now if you just walk in you'll get good service too, but you may have to wait as someone may be ahead of you. I can live with this, as a pretty small store like this can't always have multiple staff on duty. Plus they have consistently had good people at this location, so they do fine. But still, if you shop here and don't pre-order your stuff, you're wasting a valuable resource.

Of course if you're like me and your time ain't worth that much, then it's frequently a good place to hang out and shoot the shit too. Sometimes I don't pre-order just cuz I don't care and plan to stand around and bullshit for a while anyway. Or perhaps I don't know what I want to brew that day, no problem, staff is always helpful about brainstorming. Sometimes they have beer on tap, so homebrew samplers are always great.

For the prices I can get online (often with shipping) I can get virtually all of it here cheaper, faster, fresher, and with less hassle.

I really have plenty of good stuff to say about this place, and little in the way of negative. So if this is your local shop, use it.
