Your Local Homebrew Shop
Whether you are upgrading from a Mr. Beer or are brand new to the hobby, we have competitively priced equipment kits to fit all budgets.
We do not sacrifice on quality - all of our kits will make great beer! For this reason, we custom-build each of our recipe kits instead of simply re-selling off the shelf kits from a wholesaler. And we're more than happy to customize your kits to suit your personal needs. Want to go straight to kegging instead of bottling? Or use a state-of-the-art stainless conical fermentor? Don't hesitate to ask!
We also have winemaking kits!

Full-size brewing equipment kits (make 5 gallons)
Basic Brewing Equipment Kit - $75
This is our bare bones equipment kit ideally suited for brewers on a budget, or people who just want to give the hobby a go to see if it is right for them without investing large amounts of up-front capital. All the absolute must-haves are included, except a kettle and bottles (discounted if purchased together with this kit).
Standard 6-gallon Glass Equipment Kit - $135
This kit is identical to our 6-gallon PET kit, with two exceptions. It features a glass carboy instead of a PET plastic carboy, and includes a carboy brush for keeping your fermentor in tip-top shape.
If you do not have a stockpot or kettle, we sell discounted 5-gallon stainless steel pots with the purchase of a kit for $39.99 (regular $44.99).
Optional secondary fermentors start at just $26!
Standard 6-gallon PET Equipment Kit - $115
Our most popular kit, this set of equipment expands on the Basic kit by substituting a 6-gallon food-grade clear PET plastic carboy for the bucket fermentor, and adds a blowoff tubing, a brewing-grade cleanser, a hydrometer for monitoring fermentation progress and calculating alcohol content, a stick-on thermometer for monitoring fermentation temperatures, and a funnel for easy filling.
Deluxe 6.5 gallon Glass Equipment Kit - $215
The glass version of our deluxe kit. It comes with our largest glass fermentor - 6.5 gallons in size, for extra headspace and mess-free fermentations.
Deluxe 6 gallon PET Equipment Kit - $195
The biggest bang for your buck and our most complete kit - it features the biggest, easiest-to-use, and highest quality components. If it is within your budget, you can't go wrong with it!
Small-batch brewing equipment kits (make either 1 or 2.5 gallons of beer)
For prospective brewers who wish to make smaller batches than the industry-standard five gallons, we now offer equipment kits that make one or 2.5 gallons of beer. Descriptions will be added to this web site soon!
