Stopped here on my way home from my recent Iowa trip. I'm glad I did.
So we snake our way past the grocery store to the back where the beer is kept. Wow! What a magnificent display of beer. A whole room of imports. The room was stocked from floor to ceiling with every import you can think of. Including a solid amount of stuff I've never seen at Discount in Milwaukee. The walk in cooler was filled with top to bottom American craft. The usual Midwest selection along with all the Iowa beers I've never seen before. A very nice singles selection for making an Iowa mix pack. Which I gladly did.
The service was top notch. I spoke with several employees and all were extremely helpful. They even offered to open the glass shop next door. I declined since I was blowing my load of cash on Belgian sours.
This is a beer oasis in a what seems to be a desert otherwise. You must stop here if you are coming anywhere near Iowa city. I will be going back for sure.
