Minnesotans may not drink quite as much as our neighbors to the east, but we do drink a lot. In fact, we're so into it that for many of us, alcohol is not just an idle pastime but a hobby. Home brewing is growing fast, and so too are the suppliers to help us learn the craft. St. Louis Park's Midwest Supplies is one of the largest retail home brew supply shops in the country. The place has a huge inventory, friendly service coupled with quick order fulfillment, and a huge indoor garden. The clincher: Not only does Midwest have tons of collective experience in beermaking, but it places equal focus on home winemaking. One expert has been making wine at home for two decades, and another works professionally at a local vineyard and winery.

I just placed my last order with Midwest, I took advantage of their Christmas "deals" only to discover that since I'm a Veteran I cannot combine those offers with my veteran's discount.I waited 4 weeks before I contacted them to determine why my order hadn't shipped,they told me I needed to remove all of my Christmas "deals" (10% off a holiday extract kit, and a $25 gift card on orders of $75 or more).Basically they lured me in with the promise of a deal and said "Oh wait you're a Veteran these deal don't apply to you."Thank Midwest.

I ordered 3 extract kits with "upgraded" yeast packs which put me at about $120 order.  they still would not honor the gift cert and the discount to the holiday extract kit. 

I've enjoyed their kits and have been impressed with them in the past but I think I'm going to mail order to other LHBS from now on.

My wife bought me a homebrew startup kit from Midwest... She was 7 months pregnant and they didn't even bother to ask her if she wanted help to move it out the car during a snowstorm.

I live in the NW suburbs, but I shop elsewhere if I can help it.

Midwest has been my go-to shop for 12 years. The prices are always competitive, but what's kept me a loyal customer is how friendly and helpful the employees are. They tirelessly answered my endless questions when I was getting into it, and they continue to offer good advice as I have progressed to more advanced brewing techniques. Congratulations, Midwest!

No congratulatory remarks? Just a dismissive comment? Another classy comment, from a classy employee working at one of Midwest's competitors. Way to show your true colors Northern Brewer!
