I used to order everything online because all the CT stores were too far away. The closest, Maltose Express, was great, but the drive took more than an hour.
That changed when Stomp'n'Crush opened. Now I shop there exclusively. Great selection packed into a tiny space. Great advice and answers. Great people. Always a positive experience.
Zoks is my go to place, I've been going there for the last 5-6yrs. I have become very good friends with Paul. he is a great source for inspiration and advice. I've been a brewer for about 14 years, and it was very humbling to recieve complements from him on some of my beers, especially since the wall paper in his shop is basically ribbons he has won from all the comps he has entered. Great place to go to get the advice you need. If you want to get your beer to the next level see Zok.
