I drove to Buster's to get my hands on the Ruination 10th Anniversary, and I had planned to get a few other things. The selection is okay, but they lacked any real variety. They had tons of Belgians and tons of IPAs, but outside of that there was almost no variety. I got all the Stone I could want and some Yazoo Sue, which is fine; I love Stone. But, another customer asked me what a good wheat beer was, and in the process, we found they had no wheats anywhere that we could find. It's summer; you'd think at least a SN Kellerweis would be there (they only had hoptimum, torpedo, and SNPA). My local bottle shop in Little Rock, which I complain about regularly, has a much more impressive stock. Anyway, I will probably stop here whenever I drive through (I'm in Little Rock, family is in Birmingham), but rather disappointing. Nevertheless, good customer service. One of the guys had good knowledge about beer. We mainly lamented about DFH pulling out of TN.

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.
