Excellent source for Cigars, Pipes and all-things smoke related.
With all of the negative press that smoking has gotten in the past few years, as well as the continued bans being enacted by governments, it's nice to find a shop that specialized in one of life's finer pleasures.
Located in a historic house in Homewood, the Briary is a family owned and run smoke shop that has been around for years. Owner Skip Elliott and long-time manager John "Farmer" McCulloch are extremely knowledgable, friendly and eager to help. Offering a huge walk-in humidor, cases of high-quality pipes (including those made by Skip), a smoking room and countless accessories everyone is sure to find the perfect smoke.
There is a regular clientele, many who have been patronizing the shop for years, that frequently gather in the smoking room. The conversations range to a wide variety of topics, from politics, religion, sports, etc. Everyone is made to feel welcome. I have made several lifelong friends just from hanging around and enjoying a smoke or two.
