vibe: 4 | quality: 4 | service: 4.75 | selection: 4.5 | $$

Visited on a Wednesday evening. Store was dead. I wish this store was closer to downtown and easier to find (its in a shopping center, off the main road)

A - Open, bright , clean, rather industrial. Like a Total Wine, but with liquor. Not a den of craft beer, but certainly an easy quick place to shop. - 4

Q – No concerns. You can get many of the beers as singles already chilled. - 4

Sel – Fantastic selection for both domestic and foreign. Prairie Artisan – bought one of each of the four different bottles on the shelf. – 4.75

Ser – The staff wanders the isle and asked twice if I needed help. The second time I took him up on it and he had an immediate answer and took me right to the spot on the shelf. – 4.5

Food – No food, except a few take out snacks.

Value – $$

I saw the BA ratings on this store and tried it out when I was in that part of town. In my experience, they have the best/widest selection of craft beer of any store in town. There were dozens to hundreds of different beers. The emphasis was on US craft brewers with lots of Texas titles and a pretty good selection of Belgian beers. There were fewer German and British labels. Prices were decent with a few specials available. Although the selection was better than other stores in town that I've been to, I'm not sure it's enough improved to warrant going a long way out of your way to check them out.

There's not a lot in the way of craft beer in San Antonio, but if you are looking for some bottles to take home with you, this is the place. The beer manager, Robert, is very knowledgeable and helpful. He has put together quite a beer selection and knows where to point ya. The place is a huge, and first impression might be that it is not a craft beer destination, but it most definitely is. Highly recommended...

Stopped in the Ganriel's while on a business road trip. Wanted to get some of the beers that don't have distro in So Cal. Was approached by one of the employees and we proceeded to talk beers for the next hour while he walked me through their stock, telling me about the ones I hadn't seen before. This store (there are several) had an pretty extensive selection of beers plus a section where you could make up your own six packs.

After talking to the employee I took him up on a couple of suggestions for a new brewery's offering (5 Stones) and made up a couple mixed sixers while I was at it.

Recommend this place highly and I'll be back when the next business trip comes up.

Cheers!
