This is a dangerous beer store. They have a big selection that runs two long isles with a long row of cooler doors behind them. They have a great selection of local and import stuff and they keep getting new things weekly. I usually stop in to see what's new and interesting or to ask about a new release when I hear they are coming out. The staff really now their stuff and it seems like there is always someone in the beer section to help. I think they get a lot of overwhelmed customers looking for "a blue moon type of beer" so they are happy to chat when then meet another beer geek.
They also have a tasting area with 8 taps, I believe, and a lecture series that includes wine producers, brewers and other interesting people with an interest in alcohol. Also grab one of the addicting little hand made caramels at the checkout counter. I typically end up walking out with a box when I only want to go in and just see what's new.
