Is the DC Area Anti-Home Brew?

I went today to the Annapolis Home Brew Shop to get some supplies. A winter should never be entered into without adequate beer and wine and I am fixing to make both. One question though – are there no home brew places closer than Annapolis? It seems like there should be something closer but I couldn’t find it.

    My cousin Chris says there’s also a really excellent store called Maryland Homebrew based in Columbia. Is it closer than Annapolis, maybe not.

    Tom’s cousin and Chris’ bro here, also the Beerfly Guide on BeerAdvocate for the area (I volunteered first, but am otherwise responsible for maintaining the database of beer-oriented places). The two places that Randy mention are the ones worth going to in NoVA. DC proper does not have a homebrew shop. You might also want to get in touch with the local homebrewing groups BURP and The Worthogs. I’m not a homebrewer myself, but I’ve run into members of both groups and they are good peeps.
