Brew Supply in the Bay Area

Cheshire_Cat May 9, 2010 08:29 AM

Hi Everyone,

Anyone have recommendations for brew supply in the Bay Area? Wanted to try my hand at homebrewing, so wanted a place with a good staff to get me started without selling me the store. Willing to drive to get good services.

    Both Oak Barrel and SF Brewcraft are excellent.
    The gold standard is Morebeer in Concord
    995 Detroit Ave. Suite. H Concord, CA 94518

      Thanks! That is were I went. Stopped by SF Brewcraft but it wasn't my type of place. The guys at Morebeer were great, very nice place.

        Yea, Oak Barrel isn't much to look at, but the supplies are great and so are the people there.
