People Say…

Went down yesterday to pick up a case of bottles, caps, and some cleaning supplies, and it seemed like a great place. Helpful, extremely knowledgeable staff, big selection of ingredients for brewing, and a huge Hydroponics supply. All the staff looked like they were sipping on home brews, and their recipe base was fantastic. Prices were actually very competitive versus Home Brew Mart, and the staff was definitely lacking the attitude HB Mart seems to have. Plus, the lazy shop dog is pretty endearing. Will definitely return.

We were very happy with the helpful staff at Hydrobrew. We are just beginning to brew and we had a lot of questions. Not only did they offer a lot of helpful suggestion on what to buy, they also gave us free samples of their beer. We will definitely be using this location for our home brew supplies even though it is so far from us.

Ok I don't ever write reviews but these guys are exactly the kind of local business we need to support. They are knowledgeable, friendly, and obviously love their craft.  Oh and they saw my id and gave me a military discount.  Shop here... seriously you won't regret it.

Hydrobrew is really cool. It has a very good selection of homebrew equipment as well as supplies. And they have good prices. I don't know about the hydroponic aspect of the store, but the employees were very knowledgeable about homebrew.

This place rocks!  I went in and they were making beer and let me have a sample of their last batch, it was really good.  I was looking around and the prices are fair and their staff is super nice and knowledgeable.  If they don't have it they can get it too.  The people in there will teach you something every time you go if you ask questions, the kind of place you rarely see.
