How many other places on BeerFly send a birthday card with $100 gift card in it? Okay, even if the gift card was purchased by someone else, they were nice enough to take the credit card order over the phone and have it mailed the next day.
This will be the place frequented by me at least once every month to six weeks and so far the service and quality have been great. I purchased a two stage system and Hefe recipe and in no time I was loaded up and ready to go. The value seems fair enough (though I haven't compared to any other alternatives in the area, what little there are). Lots of selections will not make this place go out of style any time soon.

Jess (owner) is a beer god. What he has forgotten about making beer is more than most have ever learned (except for some monks in Belgium).
Best home brew store in town. Best selection, service, recipes and knowledge. I've been to the other one, and compared to Alternative, it feels small.
Jess has every gadget known to man. We (my beer partner and I) have purchased corny keg system, upgraded our brew pot to a 10 gallon, and almost enough beer recipes for 200 gallons of brew (it's needed in our family... my wife is one of 6 kids and I have a brother in town).
If you want to make beer, this is the place to go... in person or on the internet.

I've been to Alternative Beverage twice now and both times have been enjoyable. The layout of the store is pleasing and it is very easy to do some browsing. They carry pretty much anything you would need for your homebrewing requirements. I personally purchased a Corny Keg system from here and am very pleased. Alternative also has a wide variety of pre made 'beer kits' with rotating monthly specials on them. They carry supplies for beer & wine making. I would definately recommend this store. I would say that its neither better nor worse than the other homebrew store in town. They both have their perks.

This a nice store. Beer brewing on one side, and wine making on the other. Lots of beer kits, and they make delicious beer. My questions were answered easily, and if one person didn't know, they'd go in the back and find someone who did. Usually Jess, (owner?) who is more than happy to help you. I had questions about the yeast to use, and they broke out the chart to help me figure out which one I'd like. Prices are decent, and the have monthly specials. Very comfortable atmosphere. Very easy to work with.
