Basically the same revue I gave for the Jax Beach location. This AB location seems to have a fresher beer selection, prices are the same. The staff is hit or miss, but I have had more knowledgeable staff at this location. The store is clean and spacious.

This is a decent ABC location with good prices and is usually pretty well stocked for and ABC. The allow you to build your own six packs.

The have a large windowed cooler along one full wall of the store. Includes macro beers and a good amount of cold craft brews (Hoegaarden, Dogfish Head, Flying Dog, Boulder, Great Divide, Oskar Blues, Chimay, Spaten, HB, etc...). They also have a center bakers rack of craft brews available room temp (Ommegang, St. B, Saison Dupont, North Coast, etc...) As of Spring 2009 it seemed to better stocked and more fresh selction that the Jacksonville Beach location.

The prices are about the best around, they have a good wine and liquor selection, and best of all you get reward points for frequent shopping.

Quality is hard to judge, but nothing was out of date or dusty as far as I could see. Looks like they are just starting up a "Gourmet Beer" push, so it is probably the best it will ever be right now. Service was non-existent, but not terribly surprising for this type of store. Selection was quite impressive and included Great Divide, Rogue, Chimay, Delirum, Rochefort, St. B., and more. Sign advertises over 100 new "imports", but I think they are using that term loosely to include micros. Pricing was pretty reasonable, about $5 for most Rogue bombers and $9 for Chimay big bottles. Nice place and a vastly improved selection from when I was here last year. This looks like a system wide push from ABC as I saw the same thing at their 606 Beach Blvd. location.
