I am reviewing the brewing supplies section of the business. I am an intermediate level extract brewer; I brew about 4-5 batches of beer per year, and also a batch of hard cider 1-2 times per year.. Generally I order most of my supplies from 1 of the 3 dominant online brew...moreing suppliers. However, when I am lacking something and don't plan on placing an online order anytime soon, CLHF has just about anything I would need on short notice, including equipment, cleaners and sanitizers, and ingredients. Their prices are higher than what can be found online, but of course one must factor in the shipping charge when purchasing online--large, heavy and or multiple items, especially if not needed right away, may make more sense purchased online. Just like anything else, price it out to see what's cheaper. The service seems very good, and my interactions with staff there, though limited, have been positive. There is at least one gentleman there, I believe he may be the owner, who has a decent knowledge of home brewing for any questions one might have. Overall, very my experiences have been very positive, and I will continue to give them business. view less

I went into Crystal Lake Health Foods with very little knowledge of home brewing and was able to learn a lot from a knowledgeable member of the staff. They have everything to start home brewing.
Amazing and helpful every time I have been there. Very friendly and honest people!
