"These guys are great to deal with, no BS just the information you need to make an informed decision. I'm new to this stuff and the guys at Brews And Ques spoke to me on my level, without making me feel stupid. The whole process was easy and enjoyable, even when I had to swap out a few things I'd bought by mistake. I'd highly recommend them to anyone, experienced or otherwise."S Fuller (Satisfied Customer)
