Any area with world-class brew culture needs a world-class brew shop. Behold, Oak Barrel Winecraft, which has been giving amateur wine- and beer-makers their very own Willy Wonka moments for some fifty-plus years. Within this well-stocked and well-organized shop, you'll find all manner of hops, malts, grapes, yeasts, extracts, additives, tanks, presses, fermenters, flavorings, cultures, crushers, corks, barrels, bottles, and just about anything and everything else you may need to begin or continue getting your DIY drank on, no matter how obscure. Bonuses: The staff is always willing to answer questions and check recipes, and there's usually beer on tap.
