I was very surprised to find a decent, albeit small, selection of good beer here. As the previous reviewer found, Rogue, Schlafly, Odell, Great Divide and Boulevard are represented, along with a small stock of Founders Breakfast Stout and Dirty Bastard. If you find yourself in Sikeston with time to kill, you'll find something you like here, but be prepared to pay a bit more for it.
Interesting story about the Founder's selections... They have a "build your own 6 pack for $8.95, limit 2 of each brand" shelf, and I admittedly never pay much attention to these, but I happened to glance down and see a few bottles of Breakfast Stout and Dirty Bastard and nearly had a small coronary since we can't get Founders in Texas. I asked if they had any unbroken 6 packs and was met with an uninterested "no, we're out of 'em." I explained that Founders isn't available in Texas, and the guy seemed unimpressed and didn't want to sell all the singles they had, for whatever reason. Still, I ended up getting a few and went away happy.

My first visit to the store, and since I'm mostly an IPA guy, I didn't get a close look at the many other singles for posting here, but for a small store, they do carry a surprisingly large assortment.
Easy to find, good location, and VERY CLEAN.
I spotted a lot from New Belgium, three or four styles from Schlafly and Boulevard, as well as Sierra Nevada, Flying Dog, and Odell. Several others I forget, and I'll try to get names and edit this review later. Not a lot in terms of larger stores, but in this beer desert, a good selection by our standards.
As I was wrapping up my purchase the gentleman came to check on me. He admitted that he wasn't up on the craft beer as much as his son was, but sounded like they're doing all they can to keep a good stock, and that says a lot to me. I regret not checking this place out sooner, but with no reviews here I had my doubts.
Anyone in the "true bootheel" of Missouri looking for a good craft should be able to find something they like right here close to home.
