In town for the NCAA BBall tourney I swung by Midtown to check their local beer selection. Wow, great selection of not only local beers but several national brands we can't seem to get in Texas (Caldera, Southampton, Lost Coast, Mad River, etc). I happily loaded up a shopping cart with about 50 singles and bombers as well as a couple sixers. Clerk was very friendly and knowledgable and even gave me a Boulevard bar towel. They have to comply with Oklahoma's archaic refrigeration laws, but Midtown can't be blamed for that. Prices reasonable. Great place to buy beer!

This liquor store has the best beer selection in Tulsa and always receives all the newest brews in a very timely fashion... And they normally get lots of it. Probably the best thing about this store is you can call them at 10 AM and tell them to hold a case of the new BOMB! they just got in and they'll do it for you. Places around here just don't do that. They also always have great bottle limits on limited stuff. great selection, great price.

This is my 'go-to' beer store when visiting Tulsa, Ok. Good selection and the staff seemed fairly knowledgeable. Fairly easy to get to other than when the fair is in town, then the traffic can be a nightmare. The pick six section is pretty well stocked. With German, Belgium and English beer broken down by country.

Outside of Macadoodles in Missouri this place has the best selection by far in the area. Unfortunately with Oklahoma beer laws they can't keep the beer cold, but when I go to TX or MO they have their best selection out of the coolers anyway. So I can't lower the beer quality for silly laws :). Jacob (the hairy one) has always been very helpful and gives me tips on when the freshest beer come in the store. For example Coop F-5 came in yesterday!!!! Oh this store helps make me a hoppy girl :)

What can I say? I was raised and lived in Tulsa for 26 years before I had to leave and see the rest of the world (in the military). Haven't been back in many, many, many years! Couldn't believe this place was still there, let alone one of the best places in Tulsa to get adult beverages. I was extremely happy my brother (living in Tulsa, again, himself) not only recommended, but took me to this gold mine of a place. Great selection! And for one who likes to try several different kinds of beer, at home, it's perfect for getting your one's and two's of trial bottles. All the other great beer, liqueur, and wine is there, too, of course. Kudos to the owners, managers, and staff who run a great store!

This place is great. Went there for the first time about two years ago. Never thought anything of it. Figured it was just another liquor store in a strip mall. Went it and was in awe. The beer selection is ridiculous. Two whole walls and the the middle of the floor were packed and sorted by country or type. The staff knows their stuff. Always find something new there to try. It's a bit of a drive for me in town but it's well worth it.

Best beer selection in Tulsa, they have several brands from breweries that I haven't found at any other store in Tulsa. Great single beer selection with build your own 6 pack options. They also have a large variety of 12 packs and 24 packs. You can usually find a good deal on a different beer every time you visit.

Nice enough selection but complete nightmare for customer service. If you’re in a pinch and BierGarten, Ranch Acres or Parkhill’s are out of what you’re looking for it’s worth a stop... just don’t expect any help or knowledge with the product.
For a place that claims to be the best beer store in Tulsa, I expect a higher level of beer knowledge and a friendlier attitude. Don't expect more than "yeah, we've got it" or "No we ain't got none of that".
Again, selection is nice, prices are fair, it's just the service that is lacking.

Thank goodness I ignored the very few negative reviews. If you have a problem with this place, please show me your idea of a good store (in Oklahoma) and I'll make a special trip to see it.

Having lived in Belgium for two years, this store somewhat reminded me of the rural Belgian beer stores: Pallets of beer to buy in bulk on the floors, as well as shelves with singles and 4- and 6-packs.

The smaller shelf has the make-your-own 6-packs with some decent options, but I did most of my buying from the other shelf that breaks down the beer by region. Very good selection of Belgians — came home with a few different offerings from Dupont, a couple Flemish Reds (Strubbe's and Duchesse), plus two cases of Leffe for a friend who drinks the sh!t out of that stuff. Also bought some bottles from Boulevard, Great Divide, Mikkeller, plus some stuff from a couple of OK breweries I've wanted to try (Choc and Coop).

The staff was friendly while I shopped. At checkout they boxed up everything and loaded up my car for me. Since I spent nearly $400, that was a lot of loading.

*Now, for the customer service story: I dropped by this store on my way home to Memphis, TN after visiting a friend near Tulsa. When I got home (7 hours later), I realized that somehow I didn't make it home with a 4-pack of Kwak. I called the store, and the guy who answered it was the guy who loaded up my car. Told him about the missing beers, and the guy didn't question me or anything. He apologized, and since I live so far away and it will be a long time before I'm back, he promised to ship me that 4-pack and pay for the shipping out of his own pocket.

It's one thing to have good selection; it's quite another to have staff that understands the value of a customer and making sure they're satisfied. I just wish Memphis was a lot closer to this store; I'd be a regular for sure.
