I have used this store online for ordering, so this review does not apply to the physical location very well.

The selection is very good, covering most important imports and a lot of american beers as well. The selection I received felt fresh, and it seems they keep it fresh as they have a high volume of sales.
The website is kind of poor, you cannot order directly and have to call; the beer list is not updated frequently, so a lot of stuff listed is out, and I would suspect they have a lot of stuff that is not listed.
Despite that, service is stellar, courteous and efficient.
Prices are very good, and shipping is as inexpensive as I have seen.
Now, I always check if they have it before ordering from someone else.

Have stopped in here quite a few times on road trips and always found something worthwhile. Reasonable prices, great selection, plus the added convenience of other items... including glassware. Heck, they've sent stuff to me out of state as well (glassware). Love this place. Faithful customer when driving through.
