4.21/5  rDev -6.2%
vibe: 3.5 | quality: 4 | service: 5 | selection: 4

Atmosphere: It doesn't matter who is behind the counter, I always feel more than welcome when I walk in. I like spending time here although it can get crowded very quickly.

Quality: Every bottle in the store looked fresh, no overly dusty stuff. No hidden corners in here that it looks like a beer could be forgotten for a long period of time. The cooler is filled with a lot of BMC stuff, but half of it is micros.

Service: The help here is great. Greeted with a handshake and a smile after the first couple visits. I always browse a little and ask for some recommendations and the employees seem to know every beer (and wine) in and out. They always ask how I enjoyed my last purchase.

Selection: IBS always has lots of locals, mainly Bells, Founders, and Shorts. They also have plenty of the harder to find stuff, but they always go fast. I can always count on this place to have a few bottles that I can't find anywhere else. They store is fairly small, but what they do have is great.

Value: Good, not great. A little on the higher end when compared to some of the other stores that I visit. (1,099 characters)

Phenomenal selection. Great music playing in store. Very friendly and knowledgable staff. Downside is individual beers are not labeled with a price so it's a surprise when you check out. Overall great place to buy your beer and liquor. I wouldn't have found this gem without beer advocate app.... Just sayin (307 characters)
