This is a very average looking little mart, and that's what it is...in appearance only. It's a substantial place to get beer. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to where the beer is located, and you'll come across a few different locations with the same beer. It can be a little disorienting and requires a little bit more attention to detail, but you'll eye some cool stuff in the process. Despite how seemingly random the shelfs/coolers/end caps were, I was picking up IPAs that I knew were dated and I couldn't find anything that wasn't fresh. So despite the disorganized feel, it's apparent that everything really has its place and its well overseen. I've heard the owner is great to talk to, and was from the small chat we had, but I intentionally didn't get to involved as I had a hungry wife waiting back at the hotel and I value my life. I'll probably go back when I have time to chat and just do so while looking over glassware. Yep, there's shit tons of glass. I picked up a GI nonic real quick just to have something, but next time I'll really take In the Breweriana. Prices were reasonable. Some things may have been slightly more than at Specs, but some were cheaper, others comparable. I was fine with the prices.

Great shop. If you're visiting from out of town, and need some place to stay down town, consider the Robins Nest Bed and Breakfast...it's 3 blocks from D & Q. Worth it.
