I took my non-homebrewing friend there recently and he was amazed at the selection of this place. The sheer size of the showroom is certainly amazing.
Then again, B3 is probably the largest homebrew shop in the country/world though they might be outdone by Northern Brewer.
Pricing is hard to beat. Items are cheaper than you typically pay at a smaller homebrew shop.
Selection is incredible. You can find anything and everything homebrew-related.
Service is personalized and very knowledgeable. Every singe worker here has an extensive knowledge of brewing and they take this hobby seriously.
JP, John Plise, Reagan, and the gang are all great folks.
I wish I lived closer. Well, I wish they were closer, actually. I like where I live.

One of the best mail order homebrew shops in the country and probably the best homebrew shop in the Bay Area. Located in an industrial area of Concord. Well stocked showroom. Big selection of ingredient kits. They make a lot of their own homebrew equipment themselves so they know what works and what doesn't. They likely have what you are looking for, and if they don't, they can get it. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. This place is highly recommended. Just around the corner from Monument Liquor as well!

This is for MoreBeer's web operation...if they were my local store I'd probably be broke by now. Prices and selection are the best you will find. I've brewed two of my own recipe extract batches with their exctract and it is fantastic. Also brewed their Pliny Extract kit and it was awesome. Not big on kits, but like the Pliny kit so much that I've got their Pizza Port Shark Bite Red fermenting away now.
I've also bought a bunch of equipment from them and everything comes fast and is shipped for free if your order is over $59. You can't ask more than that. My go-to for equipment and any ingredients I don't buy locally.

I have nothing bad to say about this place. They are, hands down, the best homebrew shop in the world... well as far as I've seen.
The staff is always helpful and they seem happy to be there. The quality is second to none, and their selection is hard to beat... Although I have bought hops on the web when I couldn't get high alpha hops during the hop shortage. Their prices are fair IMO. They sometimes seem high, but they frequently run sales and special, and they give a discount to club members, so that helps a little.
What can I say, I love this place.

As most people know or have read this is a mail order place mostly.
I witnessed this as orders came in employees came out from their place in the back and grabbed items and scampered off quickly.
It was impressive to watch everyone at work.
Service was great there was only one guy but he was answering the calls, helping me and other customers.
Prices are mostly fair but some things I can find slightly cheaper.
I wish there wasn't a max on characters because now I'm just writing because I'm told I have to . Ultimately I wanted to write this review because it's the least I can do for this store since they have provided me with years of great service.

B3 is hands down the best online homebrew shop I've purchased from. Their selection is top notch and their customer service can't be beat. You will need to order over $60 to get the free shipping (not all items qualify of course) and the turn around is a tad slow but if you have problems with what you receive, a quick phone call takes care of everything. Their staff is very knowledgable and should be able to answer any question you might have regarding their products.
I have also ordered from their Riverside location (not mail order) and am always impressed by the friendly service I've receive.

This has been my homebrew shop in the east bay for the past two years.
Great place overall, and right next door to a local brewpub = win
They have a great selection of malts and other grains. They have two mills in shop for customer use. They also have a couple flavors and types (liquid and dry) extract if you aren't brewing all-grain. Pretty diverse selection of hops and yeasts as well.
The major draw of this store is the brewing equipment though. Their starter kits are fantastic and they almost have all the incremental upgrades to get you to nano-brewery status. AND their prices on most these items are incredibly low. I highly recommend this brewstore for east bay brewers.

I found this place on the web while looking for homebrew supplies. I used to work in the Concord area, and would stop by before I attempted to make the long-trek back to the South Bay. I found the quality of their inventory to be above average. I remember them being understaffed almost all the time, then again, I used to go in during what I'm sure was the busiest time of the day. The staff there is very knowlegable and Jonathan helped me refine some of my new recipes. The in-house selection is fantastic and I actually enjoyed the Bavarian ambiance while shopping in the store. My online transactions have been timely and I will continue to frequent morebeer.com.

I went here to check it out since I haven't been there in like 12 years. They have moved since the last time I was there. They had a huge selection there. I didn't even know where to go when I first walked in. For a while I was just exploring. It was pretty sweet. I was checking out the kits and one of the guys helped me find the kit I wanted. He looked in the back for me and found the one I wanted. He was very helpful. I ended up picking up a kit for a Double IPA and a Brew Your Own magazine. Excellent Service and selection there. Obviously I have to come back in a few weeks for the bottles so I will be back again and again.

I first must say this is based on their website as I have not been to the physical store(s). They have a great selection and very reasonable prices. In Vegas I have no LHBS so this is the next best alternative. The best part is the free shipping on orders over $59. My first order was placed on a Tuesday and arrived Thursday evening, granted its just Cali to Vegas but to get packed and shipped in 2 days with free shipping is amazing. Huge selection, everything I could want and then a lot more. Placed a few orders so far and everyone has been packed carefully and any special requests have been taken care of. The only negative I have is their extract kits are a little weak. They come with the same instructions for everyone and many are very different from each other but those little differences are not explained very well, it'll just say skip to step 5, or have an asterisk with 3 different ways of doing something based on your kit. Being a brewbie it would be nice to have a little more specific instructions. But the free shipping and large selection with very competitve prices more than make up for it.
