A: This place is your basic corner market with a bit of junk for sale. You know? Cheesy tee's and trucker hats. Not exactly a place to visit for beer.

Q: Substandard. Two collers of craft beer with the best thing being some local bombers of Harmon, Alaskan and maybe a bomber of Arrogant Bastard. I would be suspect to the quality of any IPA or craft beer in general purchased here.

S: Average service you would expect from a Tacoma corner mart.

S: Selection is unbecoming a beer store. Like I mentioned, two "craft" beer coolers with some bombers and sixers I can find anywhere else in the state at any grocery store. They had more BMC than anything.

Ultimately this place should have never been added to BA. Do not waste your time.

This is one of those odd little places that seems like it wouldn't have much to offer, but this little conveniece store near the Univerisity of Puget Sound has something to offer. It's definitely not your high end, huge selection kind of place, for this area it's not too bad. They have a quite a few NW beers like Deschutes, Rogue, Pyramid, Hales, and other micros like Anderson Valley, Sierra Nevada, and several others that I'm blanking on. They also have a some imports like Samuel Smith's, Carlsberg, Stella Artois, Harps, and others. They also seem to carry a couple odd American macros that I haven't seen anywhere around here, Schlitz and Black Label. It seems like the store kind of has an identity problem, not really going full out in any one direction, but it provides some beers that you can't find at your average grocery store, so it's at least worth a look.
