Craft beer geeks should know this is the #1 place for selection in Springfield, from domestic to import. This has been my local bottle shop for many years.
From 4 & 6 packs to 750's, mix 6's to bombers, the selection of domestic and import bottles is vast. Eric, the beer manager, is as knowledgeable as anyone you'll talk to, and once you get to know him he's funny and generous.
The Derb, as I like to call it, just started serving draft beer, and the selection has been incredible from day one. They have eight handles, and in the 5 short months they've been active, they have run through beers such as: Hopslam, BCBS, KBS, Imperial Doughnut Break, Imperial Biscotti Break Pretty Please w/a Cherry, BOMB!, Ron and the Beast Ryan, Calabaza Boreal, and many more. Among the current selections are: Brew Cocky, Calabaza Blanca, Oarsman, and 1000 IBU.
They have also recently started offering food, which its deliciousness I can't even begin to explain. My favorite is the Deluxe BLT. Take your standard BLT, put it on Rye, add a fried egg, sriracha aioli, and avocado. Pair that with their homemade red cabbage slaw and you'll want to shit yourself. They also do small pizzas with bacon infused crust, stromboli, reubens, meat and cheese plates, and more.
Oh, they also have the largest wine and spirits selection in the region.
If you're in Springfield and you like good food and beer, then this place should be on your list.

The layout was pretty open with the food near the front of the store and the coolers extending across the back. The singles and 750s are separated and located in the back right corner.

I didn't see any dusty bottles or beers past date. I looks like they rotate their stock.

The employees were attentive and at least three different ones offefed to help me find something. They also loaded my purchase onto the dolly and took it to the car for me.

The selection was better than any other store in the region, they had plenty of Lagunitas, Bells, and Founders that you don't usually see in other stores. They even had a case of Boulevard Lovechild, but at $20 a piece.

The prices were noticeably higher on some items like Stone 4packs. They were $12 when the same 4pack at Macadoodles was $8.

I was overall pleased and will probably start shopping there when I am in town.
