The place is a bit crowded, but seeing as the shelves are teeming with beer and wine, I guess I can't complain.
The Perfect pour carries a variety of American craft brews, including some nice limited releases, like Brooklyn Black Ops and Goose Island Bourbon County Rare Stout. I'll refer back to this later.
I was asked several times by a few different employees if I needed any help. I appreciate the willingness to offer assistance. That being said, I overheard an employee giving a customer false information about beers and breweries on two occasions during my brief visit. I know you're trying to help, but check yo self before you wreck yo self.
$40 Black Ops (used to be $50, maybe they felt awkward after all the negative press) and Bourbon County Rare for nearly $100. I believe Fou' Foune was $65. Life and Limb was $30. How 'bout no. I don't think so. Homey don't play dat. This falls into the customer service category, in my opinion. That is NOT beer advocacy, NOT cool.
Worth a stop if you're in the area, though State Line Liquors is a much better choice.

The beer staff is knowledgeable and eager to help. Great group. Even the wine side will try to help, and are not completely lost on the beer side.
The selection of beers cannot be beat. I have yet to find a beer store, coast to coast, that compares, let alone beats this store. You pay for the selection, however. For commonly available beers, you can probably go around the corner and save a dollar or more per six-pack. In my opinion, this is totally worth it. I'll take selection over bargains any day of the week.
My only complaint is that the wine side seems to be growing as of early 2014, and encroaching on the beer side. It certainly hasn't hurt their selection, and the current American beer scene will keep new things constantly coming in.
Great place, and I'll keep coming back.
