I tend to buy most of my stuff online as well. B3, Northern Brewer and Midwest mainly. I've been to Party Creations, but it's over an hour away and I rarely am in those parts to make it worthwhile. There is also Corrados in Clifton, NJ and some basement of a hardware store in some town in Westchester. Corrados isn't too bad but price & selection can kind of suck. The basement place I wouldn't even bother. When I was there a couple years ago, it looked like they stocked the place ten years ago and were still working on getting rid of what they had - it was kinda like what retail stores look like after Black Friday - stuff everywhere.
Check out Pantano's Wine and Beer Supply in New Paltz...convenient to Dutchess and Orange Counties....
Nice! Will definitely check it out. From what I can find on Google, sounds like a supply for wine grapes, as well. Sadly, their website just goes to a GoDaddy landing page, but definitely will make a field trip to check it out. Pellet hops are fine for my use, as I haven't been doing much dry hopping. I personally tend for pellet, since I use my FoodSaver to vacuum-seal and freeze pellet hops in mason jars.
I'm a homebrewer in Red Hook. I get my supplies at Party Creations too.
