I had never been, but I had forgotten to buy rice hulls for a pumpkin beer so I made a quick run over to pick some up and to check this place out.
Quality The couple of items I bought seemed reasonably fresh. However, the whole store had sort of a dingy, disorganized feel, that I wasnt a big fan of.
Service There were two people working when I went, the guy behind the counter was on the phone, and the other guy was in the backroom. When the guy from the back came out he helped me find some things and chatted for a few minutes.
Selection Seemed like a well stocked store, just about everything a homebrewer needs, both equipment and ingredients. However, I did not see anything in stock that would distinguish this from the half dozen other homebrew stores that I have been in.
Price The one big detraction was the higher the normal prices, not a lot more, but everything seemed to be a dollar or two more than what I am used to paying.
Seemed like a decent store, but nothing worth going out of the way for.

A small, tightly-organized shop, aside from the cans of extract that seemed to have wandered about. It didn't seem dusty at all to me. Maybe that was the old location?
The guy behind the counter was silent, even on being greeted, but once I started to ask questions, he was quite helpful. He even noticed that I was clearly getting ingredients for a batch of beer and asked if I needed yeast.
The extracts look good and the grains are mostly in bulk bins, with some specialty grains in packages. A freezer holds a good selection of hops, all in sealed foil-wrap packages.
There's an impressive collection of back issues of home-brew magazines stuffed into wire racks at the front counter. Shelves of secondhand bottles and brewing equipment line a couple of walls.
Prices are competitive across the board. If you know what you're looking for, this is a good place to go.

My first impression of this place is it needs a good cleaning.
Most everything here is dusty and looks like it has been there quite a while. Another thing is it isn't very well lit. The people working there stay behind the counter, barely mumble to you when they finally talk and dont seem to have the common sense to turn down the stereo behind the counter when you are talking to them even though you keep saying "sorry can't hear you" what was that?" or "what?". The prices I would say are average for ingredients.
I go here because it is somewhat closer than other shops.
