My brother-in-law was doing the driving so I got a bit turned around getting here so my only advice is to consult your friendly GPS unit to find this place.
Once there, the name pretty much speaks for itself. Total Wine & More is mainly oriented to the wine crowd. However, the beer enthusiast will not be disappointed. Just enter and head down the right side toward the coolers in the rear.
The selection is substantial and varied. Great Divide, Stone, Avery, a number of AZ breweries and a good mix of German, Belgian, UK, and other Euro brews are there. The prices were a pleasant surprise for a guy visiting from Cali who watched prices go up $2 on average for a 6-pack back home.
Management and staff were helpful and acknowledged a committment to increasing their selection over the next few months. This can only bode good things for folks living on the NW side of Phoenix.
Overall, Total Wine & More is a solid store where a beer devotee can find any number of delicious brews. Worth paying a visit.

Visited here twice when I was in AZ, 7/30/10 and 8/1/10. Walking in it doesn't look too much different than my local one in Tustin, beer is to the back and right. I was overjoyed to see a ton of different singles, a large portion of stuff I couldn't get in CA. They had the standard CA stuff - Sierra Nevada, Anchor, Firestone, Stone, some Alesmith, Port and Lost Abbey. But I was most excited seeing stuff like Left Hand, Great Divide (no OA Yeti unfortunately), Ska, Odell, Bell's, and a lot more Dogfish Head. A lot more Leinekugel's and Dundee than I'm used to seeing. There were also some imports I can't get in CA like Urbock 23 and Cantillon Kriek. Also picked up a Sonoran 200 which I thought would be a longshot at best. The Abyss made an appearance.

Service was great at the register considering I bought almost 40 bottles, very cheap in the end coming to around $110. I bought a lot, but I'm only scratching the surface of what this store has to offer. A great liquor store in the North Valley, a must visit if you're in the area.

Typical beer store here. I have never come across anything truly unique or special to Total Wine. They have the selection that I wold want from a larger liquor store. They have the typical wretched service from an average liquor store. They have the same old prices that any other place is offering. So, all in all, just another place to buy beer and booze. One posting said, "I have never been approached in the store by an employee." This is very true. The service is really non-existent here. Just to qualify things, I buy beer here at least once every two weeks for the last year. Enough said.

I have been to this store quite a few times, usually one of my go to stores seeing its right around the corner.

The selection is always well stocked and a large selection. A majority of the beer is kept at room temp. They had some six packs in the cooler, but all bombers were on store shelves. The store is very clean, no dust on any of the bottles. They have a wide selection of beer, however the seasonal brews seem to come out slower that others in the area.

I have never been approached in the store by an employee. I asked some workers a question and they said, "Our beer guy isn't here yet," then they walked away. Other than the one instance, all the cashiers have been very nice.

I went here to pick up a case of Hopslam that I'd reserved over the phone. When I arrived it turned out that they had plenty left in a beautiful, beautiful pile.

Quality- Everything seemed to be in very good shape. I can't say as that I inspected everything, but there were no sunlight issues, and the stock seemed like it have been rotated regularly. Didn't notice a lot of dust or things of that nature. I'd have liked to see more craft in the coolers, however.

Service- Very nice folks. It's a warehouse-type, with a huge selection, so not everyone seemed terribly knowledgeable. However they were conscientious about reserving my beer, and generally seemed friendly and reliable.

Selection- Quite good. They had lots of craft and imports in a couple of large sections. They had a huge selection of singles for sale, which is always nice. Furthermore they had lots of sixers, and cases of many good crafts. It was a little overwhelming, so I just focused on the Bell's. Not a ton of stuff unavailable in CA, but enough that I couldn't have brought it all home.

Price- Excellent. Got my case for cheaper than it was allegedly going for at the brewery. Everything was very, very reasonable. It would have been a steal if I hadn't driven 400 miles or whatever to pick it up.

This is a really great store. It's a big chain thing so not much for atmosphere, but the prices are excellent, the service is friendly and competent, and the selection is stellar. Just awesome. Wish we had something this good near me.
