I have somewhat of a love/hate with this place to be honest. On one hand, it's pretty close to home and it has a relatively large selection compared to other stores in the area so you can pretty much always count on finding the staples here when you're in the mood for something familiar. Very convenient in that regard.

Besides the large store layout, it feels like a normal liquor store; just with lots of craft beer in the mix. Sections are organized geographically and it's easy to find most things.

My biggest pet peeve is the out of code product I have constantly run into here. This store is the reason I began checking dates more closely on all my purchases. I've been burned twice with IPAs nearly a year old. I now only buy stouts and high ABV brews here since they don't remove old stock very diligently.

Service is okay. They definitely wont approach you for help in my experience, but they also aren't jerks. The owner seems like a pretty nice guy though. They do lists for special releases, and I appreciated that they took my name and number for a limited release beer for which the list was full and did actually call me when people on the list didn't pick theirs up.

Prices are usually a little higher than most other stores in the area. I don't mind on the limited releases, but I'm not going to pay an extra $2 on a common six pack or bomber. I try to stop in periodically as they sometimes have rarer beers on the shelf.
