This place has it all. Great selection, helpful and knowledgeable staff, and decent prices. They even open bottles for tasting every once in awhile. Not as large or fun as the Four Firkins but this is a nice runner up for best beer store in town. The other half of the store is a nice wine shop with staff that are also very helpful and friendly. My only complaint about the selection is that I wish that they got larger quantities of popular releases like Hopslam, KBS, Abyss, and I also wish that they did more tastings and other events.

The Wine Thief & Ale Jail are two halves of a whole store with a wall and open doorway dividing them. The senior beer staff is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The junior staff, not quite as knowledgeable, but still friendly and helpful. Their selection of superior beers is excellent with less attention paid to the low end. I saw no Keystone or Mountain Crest, but I did see a large variety of sours and Belgians and lots of other goodies. The prices are reasonable, some a little above what I've paid elsewhere, and some a little lower so it all evens out in that respect.

I'll be doing more shopping here.
