Total Wine is THE BEST location for beer in Phoenix when you factor in all of the categories above. You will find a slightly larger selection of hard to find items elsewhere, but the breadth of selection with price factored in cannot be beaten here.

There seems to be a lot of "turn-around" on the beers as well, with the occasional odd moment of them selling out of things such as Gulden Draak or Piraat (but always replenished next shipment).

This place has the warehouse/wal-mart feel, but the prices come along with that, and this is certainly welcome in a beer community that has been starved for value-focused liquor merchants. (635 characters)

An alcoholics wet dream. A huge store with a huge selection of beers, wines and spirits as well as various little nick nacks to go with them. A great place to get kegs from. The main problem with the place is limited amount of refridgerated beers, most are kept on shelves on the floor, unrefridgerate. O.K. If you get them when they first come in but even in a cool store, in Arizona that really isn't that cool so not a place to buy beers that you are going to lay down for awhile. Prices are the best in Arizona, super cheap. Not beer related but I was surprised to find absinthe here. (588 characters)

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. (1,007 characters)
