I decided to try this place over my usual shop out of convenience during a recent snowstorm. Unfortunately, to say that I was underwhelmed by my experience would be an understatement. Quality and selection was pretty average; letdowns on account of limited options. The real issues with this establishment are the atmosphere and service. Located in a shared warehouse-type complex, there is really no sense of order or organization to the layout. The staff member who was working did very little to direct me to where things were located. In fact, it was almost as though my questions were a real bother to the staff...despite the fact that I was the only customer in the store for the 20 minutes that I was there. To top things off, the staff's dog was eating spilled specialty grains in the corner of the store in plain sight. Ugh, definitely not a supply shop that I will be returning to.

I was excited when I found out about the place as I was looking forward to not having to trek to Nashua for HB supplies.
It's a small place but well organized. I sent them an email a few months back about a product question I had but I never received a response.
$6.00 for a 11.5g sachet of US-05 dry yeast because that was the only thing I was buying (sorry that I didn't buy the 50# sack of two row that you quoted a price for me on the phone and tried charging me $5 more when I showed up later that day to pick it up.
I haven't purchased any hardware there but from what I've noticed prices seem to be quite a bit higher than other places.
This will be my "in case of emergency break glass" place.
Edit - 2/14/2013: I will give up homebrewing before I ever shop here again.

This is my usual spot for local homebrew supplies. Joe, the owner, is friendly and knowledgeable. They have a great selection of hops including lots of harder to find varieties. The last time I bought yeast it was extremely fresh, only three days old. I just wish they carried White Labs in addition to Wyeast. Avoid the stale vanilla beans.

Finally, there is a decent home brew store in this area! After years of suffering with low quality and high prices, I was pleasantly surprised to find Border Brew Supply. The store seems to have a pretty good supply of everything and the staff seemed knowledgeable and helpful.
They have a great selection of grains and accessories and everything seemed fresh and stored well. Prices seemed much better than other stores that I have been in. I am happy to be able to support a local business from now on instead of having to order from the larger online stores.
I would highly recommend shopping here.
