Great selection as well as a pretty solid tap list for the most part. Able to get some pretty rare releases that others can't. Just have to know when they come out as there are many folks that have also figured this out as well. Ask the people working behind the bar if they have something you are looking for as most rare things will never touch the floor for sale.

Stopped in here earlier today on my trip south. Took a minute to find the beer area but once I did it really was pretty impressive. Huge long cooler holds most of the six packs and singles, with the rest scattered around the area. Directly across from the cooler is the tap area with lost of seats and all of the beers on a large chalk board. Atmosphere was good for what it is, a few people milling around looking at beers. Quality was pretty solid. Lots of different beers from all over the country, multiple styles and they even sold some glasses I had never seen before. Service was pretty good. I was left alone to brows the beer area but once I went over to the wine / bar area I was asked if I needed any help, I didn't tho. Selection was easily the best part. They have a TON of beer in that place. Lots of locals, nationals and internationals. I was able to pick up some Crooked Stave and even a mead I was on the lookout for. I didn't try any of the food this time but it all looked great. Prices were solid across the board, only a handful of bottles I felt were a little high. Overall one of the best grocery store bottle shops I have ever encountered. I may return when we roll through town again in a few weeks.

Really hard to review this place. Incredible selection and nice beer selection on tap however it is impossible to get over the fact that you are drinking in a really high lit and bright grocery store. The food at the deli counters is good but overpriced. Really think they need to develop a bar menu and with all the cheeses available in the store how hard would it be to develop a cheese platter. The current bar manager, James is friendly and pretty knowledgeable, the rest of the staff no better or worse than any other place. It is really small so service is never an issue. The other thing I don't like is it isn't open regular bar type hours but grocery store hours.
