More of a wine shop / convenience store with beer added in. They don't have a lot but they have some good stuff. The staff is very helpful and it's conveniently located on US 1. It's well worth a stop if you're passing by.

Went in browsing. Long story short. Chose two beers from the Kern River Brewing Co. The sales person said they were allocating one per customer. I was with a friend. Chose a couple of other beers to purchase. They were on the counter, ready to go and the sales person decided to call the owner to see if she could actually sell the beers to us. The owner said NO! What a freakin waste of time. Are we not good enough to buy the beer. What hubris! I certainly would never go back there again. Do I really need that beer so much. Future buyer beware

You can tell the owners of this liquor store love beer. Yes they sell wine, liquor and everything else but this place is all about the beer. Make sure to look around the entire place because they have beer on different shelves and in coolers. I think they have a members club that you can join to make sure you get the tough releases and follow them on FB or IG to get up to date new release information.

Stopped in on a Sunday night before a flight to Washington DC looking for some great bottles. Met Penny who really doesn't know a lot about the beer, but was very nice and listened when she showed me a 2013 Black Xantus, and I told her you have to hold it at least 2 years before it really develops. They did have some 2011 Victory at Sea which I wanted to scarf up but I passed as it was a little pricey even for being aged. The real gems are in the cooler near the door where you can admire the top shelf, but it isn't for sale. I did pull two bottles of Old Stock Brandy Barrel and stuffed them in the trunk and was tempted by the case of SUCABA on the floor and some FW Anniversary years. Over all a really nice find for a bottle shop and one I will stop in again as I'm in the area often. Penny gave me Kevin's card and I called and left a message, but he never returned the call, so not sure of how he is, but he definitely knows his beers and he likes to age some before he lets them go which is nice as my cellar is full.

Adam's is a total diamond in the rough - it looks like a corner liquor store but it's a great spot. I was in the area and checked BA for nearby bottle shops and came across this place. I was surprised to see a good selection including lambics from 3F and Tilquin, Fifty Fifty Eclipse variants, Prairie saisons, etc. Lots of good beer in stock and for fair prices. I returned for the BCBS release on Black Friday and they handled it very well. They used a number system and had the regular stout, coffee stout, and barleywine in stock in mixed 4-packs. Also scored an Abyss! Overall I was really happy with the release and will definitely drop by next time I'm in town. Definitely recommended.

A diamond in the rough, totally unexpected. Quality of selection is great, had beers that lots of places dont have. Found Lost Abbey's Red Poppy and Angels Share - Bourbon, as well as seasonal highlights like Port Brewing High Tide and Drake's Aroma Coma(not as rare but unique for a small liquor store).
Very impressed, pricing was very reasonable. all beers in coolers and fresh. Apparentley the owner Kevin does the beer buying, he wasn't there but good job Kevin, you're probably on BA.
Will def be back
