I think the title pretty much sums it up in the business world. The industry is in the middle of a slow down and if you like having a local homebrew show you need to shop there. I know they do not always have what you want when you get a hair up you butt and just want to brew with little notice. But only buying 50 lbs sacks of grain from us will in the long run bite you in the butt when your local shop closes for lack of support. While I do not have a problem with many of the cheaper online shops (More Beer/Adventures). I do have a problem with shops owned by AB InBev. They are not a friend to the craft beer world and have little use for homebrewers who do not buy their products.
