3.55/5  rDev -7.1%

After checking the previous reviews, I was got the wrong impression about on what Buster's entails. Yes, it is a big place, mostly wine and liquor - but the beer selection is behind the cash register and is pretty small (20' X 5" area) with a limited amount of mostly "high end" type beers - Belgium's, DFH, and a very small amount of Stone (which was disappointing for a Stone addict).

In fact, when I asked about the more "session" type craft beers, they referred me to Raffe's - where I got the low end type beers - Abita, New Belgium, Lazy Magnolia, etc.

Service is just college kids at the cash register - friendly, but not going to come over to assist anyone either.

Oh, bought a can of Evil Eye there - which stopped the entire cash register group in their tracks to warn me about drinking it too fast, lol.

Mind you this review is coming from the perspective of a Nebraska where our liquor laws are like the wild, wild west…

So… only having beers above 6.whatever% OBVIOUSLY hurts the selection. I stopped at Busters twice during my stay and nothing jumped out at me as “must buys” but I was looking for more sessionable beers (off to the grocery store for that!) but if you are in the mood for a nice high proof bomber/750ml you are covered. While the space dedicated to beer is small they did have plenty of variety to satisfy: Belgians to DIPAS to Imperial Stouts.

Prices on everything (beer, wine, liquor) is higher than I am use too… but par for the area (retail)???

Friendly people, ample help.

On-site parking.

I will let the locals tell you if this is the best in Memphis but I’d say it’s worth a stop for a local and out-of-towner alike.
