Check out our web-catalog if you haven't in a few days... We've added a few new Malts and Wyeast yeast strains. Just to name a couple: 3278 Belgian Lambic Blend and 2206 Bavarian Lager.
Just a reminder to some new comers, everything that you see on our web-catalog is available for purchase 6 days a week at our store. Some items are very popular and sell out fast, so feel free to phone first to be sure what you need is in stock. We will always try to accommodate your needs; if you want something that you don't see in our catalog, just ask. Chances are we can get it, usually in a week or less.
If you haven't visited the Great Brewers website yet, you should. Along with other great content, the Great Beer Test is a fun and challenging way to test your beer IQ. This isn't some watered down Facebook-style, "Will you survive the twinkie famine" quiz... This is a full-bodied beer test. Everything from beer history to brewing techniques. 50 to 100 questions. If you don't have an account at GreatBrewers.com, then you must create one....

We heard your cries New York. From now on, nearly every hop that we sell comes to us directly from the Yakima Valley in Washington. From the vines right to us. These hops come direct from the farms, rather than a wholesalers' warehouse. All of our pelletized hops too. We will be able to package the hops at their peak of freshness. Homebrewers will get even fresher hops than before, and most importantly, at about half the price! All of our hops are still packaged in oxygen barrier bags that are first purged with inert gas, and then vacuum sealed and stored in the freezer.
And finally, congratulations to all of the winners of last weeks homebrew competitions! You guys all did really great. We are already looking forward to the competitions the next time around.
