TRUSTED Suppliers Within Atlantia
AleCraft Brewing Supply, LLC (Perry Craine) Located in Bel Air, Maryland, in Harford County on the north side of Baltimore. Free classes, pretty good supply list. Right next to a bakery.
Alternative Beverage Charlotte, NC. (Baron Edward) “These guys are based out of the Charlotte area, good selection of items you may need but I hesitate to give them good scores for helping new brewers. My suggestion is to learn somewhere else, they don’t seem to have time to talk to anyone who doesn’t know much.”
Bee Folks, Mount Airy, MD. Excellent selection of varietal honeys, good prices if you buy in quantity (bulk order with your fellow brewers!). Also bee-related products like wax candles and mead kits. These folks have a booth at Pennsic and the Maryland Renaissance Festival.
