Adventures in Homebrewing the place to buy all of your homebrewing products or not?
In this post I am going to give you a quick overview of this company, provide you with details on what they offer and let you know my thoughts on whether you should use them as your go to homebrew supplier.
Who Are They Anyways?
They are a beer brewing and kegging supplies store. They claim to be a family run business that has been around since 1999.
They have an online store as well as two full service retail locations in Michigan.
A quick review of their site also shows that they sell wine and spirit supplies.
What Do They Sell?
When it comes to what they offer, they pretty much cover the whole gambit of homebrewing supplies, to include any piece of equipment you possibly need as well as a very large selection of beer making ingredients and beer making kits.
The following are sections on their site:
1) Brewing Equipment:
Under this section they list the following items you can purchase:
- Beer Brewing Equipment Kits,
- Boiling Equipment (kettles),
- Measuring and Testing Equipment (hydrometer, etc),
- Fermenting Equipment
- Santizing and Line Cleaning
- Beer Bottling (bottles, caps, etc)

2) All Grain Brewing

- All Grain Equipment
- Brewing Hardware

3) Kegging Supplies
Here they offer:
- Home Brew Kegs
- Kegging Accessories
- Jockey Box Equipment
- Kegging Systems
- and more…

4) Beer Recipe Kits
They have a great selection of recipes and I really enjoy a lot of their kits.
They have both: All Grain Recipe Kits & Extract Recipe kits.
They carry some of the top beer kits on the market such as Brewers Best…
However I prefer the All Grain Kits they put together themselves. They come with all the ingredients and the recipe to brew up some very tasty all grain recipes.

5) Beer Ingredients
And of course they carry a very wide variety of ingredients:
- Grains, Malts, Sugars
- Flavoring and Spices
- Brewing Salts and Treatments
- Beer Finings
Their selection of ingredients is impressive, they carry pretty much any ingredient you would require for homebrewing and I find their pricing to be very reasonable.
6) And as indicted they also have a section for wine making and spirits.
To sum up what they have to offer… pretty much anything and everything you could possibly ever need to get set up with a good home brewing system, whether you want to go BIAB, All-in-One-Brewing System, or a traditional 3 Vessel system.
Plus all the ingredients to keep you brewing a wide variety of beers.
And the ALL Grain Beer kits they put together make some very tasty beers. Their recipes are well-thought-out and you can reuse them any time you want to brew up that beer again, just reorder the ingredients and your all set.
They have a very fair return Policy. I must say I have never had to use it. Anything I have ever ordered from them arrived in good condition and was exactly as advertised on their site.
However the following is their return policy:
We will gladly accept the return of products for 30 days from the date of purchase. Fulfillment mistakes that we make resulting in the shipment of incorrect product to you will also be accepted for return 30 days from the date of purchase. Returned items must be unused or a 30% restocking fee may be charged, this includes any item that has been disassembled. If an item does not work, do not try to fix it.
On any defective product, Adventures in Homebrewing will pay for all shipping for the first 30 days. If the return is not for reasons of defect, purchaser will be responsible for all shipping charges. All returns require a Return Merchandise Authorization Number (RMA#).
Seems fair enough to me… order something up… not as you thought it was going to be… they’ll take it back within 30 days and if it is a defective product they will even pay the shipping.
So Would Big Robb Recommend Them?
I do recommend Adventures in Homebrewing and have for some time.
Their customer service is awesome. I like to email and when I have a question I always hear back from them the very same day.
They have all the brewing equipment you would ever need and they carry very high quality products and as we have already discussed their Beer Kits are in my opinion some of the best out there, especially their All Grain Beer Kits.
When it comes to homebrew supply stores they are my go to no question.
Don’t believe Ol’Big Robb… you can check them out yourself and see:
Do note that if you do happen to like them as I do and make a purchase they will send me a referral fee. Few pennies to help keep this site up and running and maybe a wee bit left over to allow me to buy a new homebrewing toy or two, so of course I appreciate your support! Cheers!
