I've recently tossed my hat into the world of beer trading and decided to expand my already lengthy list of local beer stores. I happened upon Granite Package Store after reading various reviews on Beer Advocate. Review after review of A's peaked my interest so I decided to make the trip up there one day. I entered the store with great anticipation, making my way to the back where I assumed the beer section was located. There I found a number of coolers with a large shelf in front stacked with various imports and domestic stuff. The selection was impressive but nothing I hadn't seen at other comparably sized stores.

After a quick meander of the cooler area, my eyes happened upon absolute gloriousness. I had somehow completely missed an entire store length aisle full of nothing but some of the finest ales and lagers one can find from around the world. Jolly Pumpkin, White Birch, Avery, North Coast, Firestone Walker, Founders, the list went on and on. They were stocked with basically every Nogne and Mikkeller possible. I don't recall seeing so many sours in one place. In addition to everyone's usual favorites and sought afters, they have things I'd never even heard of or couldn't find anywhere else. I've been to super market sized liquor stores...I'd choose Granite over them any day.

I can honestly say their prices can't be beat. Jolly Pumpkin usually runs me 2-3 dollars more in other stores. And this kind of price disparity can be found with most of the selection.

Their incredible selection is coupled with phenomenal customer service. Kevin, the store manager, was very attentive and personable. Despite being more of a wine guy, he was pretty knowledgeable about his beer. John, their beer guy, arrived about an hour into my stay and was exactly the same way. He can basically answer any question you have and knows his stock top to bottom. Both of them seemed to really love what they do and are happy to talk about it with you.

After a good two hours, I walked out with some valuable information, some incredible brews, and my new favorite beer store.

This is my go to place for great , great beers.

I walk up and down the aisles with amazed smile on my face looking at the amazing variety of beers on the shelf. Great selection , helpful staff, and it's where I pick up my copy of beer advocate. They have a section which has rarities with limited purchases. That's why I visit this store. Always something unique, cool and worth tasting on the shelf here.

If there was a drawback is that it is in a strip mall next to a Shaws Supermarket. What they need is a bar next door with 36 frequently rotated taps. That aside, a great place to hunt and find beers from all over.

This store has an incredible selection. Period. Unlike bigger liquor stores, the beer section (a third of the store) is not littered with mass produced beers. If you want a serious look at what the craft beer industry offers, visiting Granite Liquors is a must.

Love that the rare release section limits purchases to one or two so really anyone wanting to access limited and unusual beers is able to. John is extremely knowledgeable and super helpful if you can catch him.

Prices are consistent with the market. This is my go to beer store.
