Although the establishment sells wine, spirits, cigars, etc., I have only ever purchased beer there. Also, I've only ever purchased from their make-your-own-sixpack selection. The selection is usually nice, but they don't seem to switch out products very often. So, basically when I've made my way through all of their selection trying out new beers (new for me), I have to come back in a month or so just to find something new.

I've not yet had any problems with service. Only one time did I have to go find someone to check me out, but to me that's not that big of a problem. The people who have checked me out have always been quite nice, professional, and helpful.

My third trip to the Cactus League and I wish I had found this place on the first two. Solid selection of beer and scotch. I was asked if I needed assistance with my beer selection, which I didn't, but my friends asked for some cigar help which was provided courteously and professionally. We tried to get back to enjoy the lounge, but just missed the closing. Along with Papago's, Magnum's will be a mainstay for our baseball crew next spring.

No complaints as to service or selection, lots of CA beers, which was fine with me as there are a lot of those that don't get distributed too far. Planned on coming back for a bottle of Ardbeg or Bowmore, but never made it.

The unique selection is unbeatable. I'm born and raised here in Phoenix and Magnum's has the widest selection available. The prices are incredibly expensive but they are probably what you would pay going out and ordering one at a restaurant. My favorite part was the mini-keg selection as they have at least a dozen different brews. The shop itself was very nice and if you are into any type of fine liquor or cigar this is your place. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. If you are in the North Phoenix area this place is a must visit.

Amazing place. Very high-end. Set up like a gourmet liquor store. Everything in on shelves, and some beer can get dusty so watch out. Very strong selection of micros, seasonals, and euros. I can find some San Diego and SoCal beers here that I can't find at home. The employees are extremely helpful and knowledgable. Prices are high, but worth it for some of the beers there. A great Scotch selection as well, with a tasting bar. Just be prepared to take out a second mortgage. A must-go if in Phoenix, despite the cost.

Magnum's has a nice selection of beers in virtually all categories that a BA would want. Cigars and wine aren't bad either, and their new trendy cigar lounge is nice as well.

After several visits I have found the service to be atrocious. For example, today I was there and suspected that my total was slightly off and so I politely requested the receipt. He corrected me by saying I already had it (the credit card receipt) and said that's all he could give me, then followed it up with a nasty look.

Be careful for old or heat damaged product at Magnum's. Over 90% of their product is maintained at a warm room temperature (today it was 105 degrees and the front door was open), and I've had several bad bottles from this place. If you stick to the refrigerated product you're less likely to get a bad one, and shopping in summer months can be more risky here as well.

If you're in the area Magnum's is worth the stop, but be careful what you buy and expect to be treated poorly.
