Stopped in here on my way to KtG Day. I was really impressed by the size of the place. Huge selection of wine and fine liquor in addition to beer. Beer is what I was here for, however, and Julio's did not disappoint. Several long aisles off to the right are filled with tons of different kinds: tons of Belgian imports, at least five different kinds of Cantillion, Thomas Hardy's, Lost Abbey, Hoppin' Frog (had some BA BORIS), Ballat Point, SA Barrel Room, Founders, and so much more. Coolers lining the far right wall contained even more great brews. Prices were very reasonable. The day I went there was actually a giant whiskey tasting going on (for free!). I was driving, so I did not participate, but it was still awesome that they were doing it. However, because of the tasting and amount of people, I had little interactiokn with the staff. The interaction I did have, however, was positive. I was asked at least once if I needed help with anything and as we checked out I joked with the cashier about the high-tech ID scanners they have. Overall, a very impressive section and great size and atmosphere. Definitely stop in if you're in the area.

I finally got to shop at Julios when I recently was in the area.

It is conveniently located near 495, and there is ample parking in the front next to a Starbucks.

The store sells both wine and beer. The beer selection is quite good. I found a number of beers which I previously have not tasted and that I was looking for.

However, a number of the beers I bought and looked at have older bottle dates. This is an issue with IPAs. The beers were good, but I would have preferred them 2 months fresher.

There were also a number of beers which had a best by date which was about to expire.
I bought a few of these because they were difficult to find, but these beers would have been better fresher.

The display is a bit disorganized. The beers are shelved by brewery, but the more expensive, sought after beers should be shelved separately like in other smaller beer stores, or behind the counter.

Service was very good, although I didn't ask the salesperson any recommendations. The salesperson was very helpful finding beers I requested.

The prices are very good- 15% discount on 6 or more bottles.

In general, an excellent beer store. However, I don't like the older bottle dates on some of the beers. The trade-off, though, is buying a difficult to find beer which be may less fresher.
