Dan Small's shop is your only source for fresh hops and barley in Vancouver. He also has a full range of gear for beer and wine making at modest prices, as well as kits and malt extracts that make it even easier for newbies. A guru behind the counter, Dan is an endless source of advice and recipes, and even hosts the occasional beer tasting. People come to the shop with their latest beers and hang out, have a taste and see what others are up to. Its a great way to learn and many of the people that go are new to brewing themselves.
